For those who have been waiting ever so patiently for the PlayStation 3 release of Square Enix’s 2008 JRPG, The Last Remnant, well..you might just be waiting forever.
According to at Andriasang.com, it seems Square Enix has canceled the PS3 version and isn’t even bothering to tell any they did so. In the newest issue of the “The Square Enix magazine” retail promotional magazine (Volume 13) failed to mention ANYTHING about the PS3 version of The Last Remnant in the ‘upcoming releases calendar’.
It’s been a rocky road for the PS3 version of the Last Remnant. What was once suppose to be a simultaneous release on both the PS3 and 360, soon became a 360-only release with nothing said about the PS3 versions besides that it would ‘hit later’ in 2008. The situation quickly soured when the Media would ask about the ‘delayed’ PS3 version and their questions were answered with silence or no comment. It looks like the final nail has been put in the coffin, though if the overall Metacritic score is any indication, it seems we didn’t miss much.
What do you guys and gals think? The PS1 and PS2 were known for their abundance of JRPGs/RPGs and this generation of consoles, the 360 has been the current home for gamers RPG fix. Would you have purchased The last Remnant had it hit the PS3?
