The Last Story finally hitting North America on Aug. 14

At long last! Mistwalker's RPG will hit the western world.

Mistwalker's The Last Story will finally release in North America on Aug. 14, ending a nearly two-year wait for western gamers who've wanted to get their hands on the RPG since it released in Japan in early 2011. A tweet today by the game's North American publisher, XSEED games, confirmed the release date.

The Last Story's North American launch, though late, will be a major victory for those who took to petitions to bring the game to the western world, a place where Nintendo didn't think there was enough of a market to justify its release. Fans took to the Internet to create "Project Rainfall," a petition pleading for the release of three titles in the west: Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower. So far, it's worked.

Xenoblade hit shelves in April, though it was a GameStop-exclusive outing. Now, with Last Story coming this August, Project Rainfall is batting a solid two-for-three.

And with that said: Does that mean a North American Pandora's Tower announcement is imminent?

Ugh, was hoping it would be July 31st at the very latest. Been hearing bad things about it lately too, and Lost Odyssey never really impressed me, so despite my love for this game's art direction I'm hung up about cancelling the pre-order now.

Whereas Pandora's Tower is tempting me to do illegal things.

I picked up The Last Story a while back and haven't played it yet. Mostly because I stalled on Xenoblade. If I had the money I'd pick up Pandora Tower, which I keep seeing in stores and have a suspicion it may one day be hard to find.

So many games to catch up on. >_<
