Good news, everyone, it seems as though last week’s story that The Last Story might be Hironobu Sakaguchi’s last game was slightly mistranslated. Rest assured, Sakaguchi and team are in fact pouring 120% effort into The Last Story on Wii, but it’s not going to be his last game. Here’s to future classics in the making by Mr. Sakaguchi.

To ease your worries, this comes straight from his blog: “The energy poured into this project by the development team and I are 120%. I’m hoping you can understand that, however on the other hand, I feel worried and nervous like sending my child on a trip alone. Emotionally it feels like this is my last work, while pouring everything I have gotten into this project. Never regret, but now “I’m enjoying”; furthermore, aiming towards completion. The sense of “This is it” relaxes my shoulders, its pleasant feeling to conduct an orchestra by the sense of my intuition.”
