Last Remnant video goes on an odyssey

Square Enix has released the first trailer for its upcoming RPG, Last Remnant. X3F readers will recall that Last Remnant is something of a first for Square Enix, in that it is being simultaneously released in both the U.S. and Japan. Not only that, but it includes two main characters, one designed to appeal to Japanese audience, and another made for western audiences. The trailer showcases some gameplay that looks a bit like Dynasty Warriors and suspiciously similar to Lost Odyssey (created by previous Square Enix employee, Hironobu Sakaguchi).

Square Enix launches Last Remnant website

A new website has been launched for the upcoming RPG from Square Enix, The Last Remnant. Right now The website consists only of a single image, some text, and a repeating loop of background music (that you can't turn off). There are two versions of the website. The North American version shows both the typical Square hero, Rush, and the hero designed with Western audiences in mind, the Conqueror. Look carefully at the bloodstained wall behind the Conqueror. You'll notice that the clean part of the wall is in the same shape as the Conqueror's silhouette, which means he was standing there when something very messy happened (yet his hair remains miraculously clean). The Japanese site, curiously, doesn't display the Conqueror at all. Hopefully, it won't be too long before we start sussing out some actual gameplay details.

First Last Remnant screenshots surface

The first screenshots of the new Square Enix RPG, The Last Remnant, have been released. To be specific, there are two screenshots and some artwork. The first screenshot (above), shows off one of the game's towns. As you can see, it's very detailed and generally pretty impressive. The second shot shows off what appears to be combat between two different armies. The character models here look nice, though not fantastic. Finally we have a new piece of art. Before you start thinking that the girl with short hair and a sword is hot, know this: that's no girl.

Let's face it, it wouldn't be a Square Enix RPG without a disturbingly androgynous hero. Visit Xboxygen for high resolution screens.

New Square Enix RPG revealed: The Last Remnant

The latest issue of Game Informer reveals that Square Enix is working on a brand new RPG for new gen consoles. Entitled The Last Remnant, the game is being developed with both Japanese and US audiences in mind. In a first for Square Enix, the game is planned as a simultaneous release in both territories. While the Xbox 360 isn't mentioned specifically, the game's producer, Hiroshi Takai, notes that The Last Remnant will break Square Enix's tradition of console exclusive games (in other words, it looks like the 360's global market share is too tasty to pass up). The game offers two main characters from which to choose: a typical Square hero and a darker anti-hero designed to appeal to American gamers (check out the image above; we'll let you guess which one is which). Hit the "read" link for Siliconera's transcription of the article. You can also check out Xboxygen for some shots taken from the magazine.

A brand new RPG from Square Enix on the Xbox 360? Is there hope for Final Fantasy after all?
