Mistwalker and Hironobu Sakaguchi has been working away at upcoming Wii RPG The Last Story for quite a long time now, and thus far all we've had to go on were scant details and concept art. Thankfully, Mistwalker unveiled the first trailer for The Last Story today, and the results are not quite what you may have been expecting from the father of Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon, and Lost Odyssey.
Not only is this first trailer filled with actual gameplay footage, but it shows off a new, real-time battle system including targeting multiple enemies for attacks and a full cover system. Non-combat gameplay also shows off some of the towns in the game, which look to have more in common with the bustling, living cities of Assassin's Creed than the normally static towns that populate RPGs. And that's not to mention the visuals, which have an impressive style of their own without using a qualifier like "for a Wii game." Between The Last Story, Xenoblade, and Arc Rise Fantasia, being a Wii owning RPG gamer looks like it's going to get a whole lot sweeter.
