Nintendo published developer Mistwalker’s Wii exclusive, The Last Story, in Japan and Europe. But in North America, Xseed Games is the action role-playing game’s publisher, which makes it a third-party game for the six-year-old Wii.

Xseed Games has announced that The Last Story is its most successful title to date. To celebrate, the publisher is selling The Last Story as a standalone game package for a suggested retail price of $29.99 in select retailers across North America.

In addition to this new standalone game package, any remaining copies of the premium launch units at retailers, which included a bonus 44-page softcover art book packaged together with the game in a custom outer box, are now available for $39.99.

“The Last Story has been an amazing title for XSEED Games and it has become our most successful title to date. This is a must have title for RPG fans, and we’re looking forward to more players discovering the magic that lies in Lazulis Island.”
