The Last Story is Thirty Hours from Start to Finish

Everyone loves a nice, epic, long winded RPG that they can play for hours and hours on end. Long length is practically a staple of the RPG genre, particularly JRPGs. The Last Story, an upcoming Wii exclusive RPG from acclaimed Lost Odyssey developer Mistwalker, will be all that and a bag of chips.

Famed game maker Hironobu Sakaguchi has dropped some tantalizing details on the length of his new creation via his Twitter account. Accordingly, the initial play through of the game will take thirty hours. Sakaguchi feels this amount of time is perfect for conveying the density of the story. The game will also feature a new game plus feature, which for the uninformed means that you’ll be able to replay the game after completion with all earned equipment, items and the like.

They are also adding in various items that can only be obtained in multiple play-throughs, an aspect Sakaguchi describes as tough. Thus concludes our Last Story update, but you can find more at the source. The Last Story will hit the Nintendo Wii in Japan on January 27th, 2010. No American release has been confirmed.
