114,722 was the total sales numbers from last week of a game we need to do well for any hope of a release state side. That was good enough to nab first place in sales by a cool 12,000 copies. Needless to say, The Last Story is apparently every bit of good as we have heard, because Japan is just eating it up. It has Wii bundles (pictured above) as well as a collector’s edition and of course the standard game. According to folks in Japan, it’s increasingly becoming harder and harder to find copies of the game.
It appears The Last Story is selling faster than Mystwalker and Nintendo had initially anticipated, so hopefully they can dish out some more copies to keep up with the growing demand. All of this is great initial news for us in the United States, because we need The Last Story to be a commercial and financial success in Japan for any hope of a release here. I think it’s safe to say that so far, so good. Oh, and in case you didn’t know, The Last Story was created by the original creator of the Final Fantasy series. Glad to see “someone” still knows how to make a non generic and bland RPG. How did Square let this guy get away?
