Following the announcement of The Last Remnant Remastered for the Japanese market, the western arm of Square Enix followed up with a press release to announce the launch of the game in North America and Europe.
The game will launch for PS4 in the west day and date with the Japanese version on December 6th, and it will be available digitally on the PlayStation Store for $19.99.
The graphics have been enhanced thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 4. If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can check out an official description directly from Square Enix.
“THE LAST REMNANT Remastered tells the story of a world filled with “Remnants” — ancient artefacts that grant mysterious power to their wielders, changing the world’s balance and leading to an era of countless frays between those who ruled, and those who obeyed. Within this war-torn fantasy world, players will follow the journey of a young man who is determined to uncover the truth.”
The Last Remnant was originally released in 2008 exclusively for Xbox 360. It was part of that wave of exclusive JRPGs for the console that Microsoft secured in order to try and establish a foothold in the Japanese market. A PC version followed in 2009, and now Square Enix is finally letting the game jump over to the PlayStation camp.
No other platforms have been added for the western release, and the remaster will come to PS4 only like in Japan.
Below you can enjoy the trailer for the North American market, alongside a batch of screenshots showing the enhanced visuals.
