The Last Remnant

The Last Remnant

Last week The Last Remnant was removed from the Steam store without any reason. However today Square Enix has announced that The Last Remnant will be released on the PlayStation 4 as The Last Remnant Remastered.

The Last Remnant was originally released on the Xbox 360 back in 2008, almost 10 years ago, and is a turn-based RPG using Unreal Engine 3. The players controls Rush Sykes who is searching for his sister, who has been kidnapped by a mysterious organization during the war. The game received a mixed reception. The battle system was praised for being unique, massive-scale battles. Only the game had some technical issues.

In 2009 the game was ported to the PC. The PlayStation 3 version was also announced, but has been cancelled due to internal factors.

The PlayStation 4 version will not contain new content. All the features from the PC version will be present and also high-speed movement in the field will be available. The engine will be updated to Unreal Engine 4.

The Last Remnant Remastered will be released worldwide on 6 December 2018 for $20 / £16 / €20. Japan will receive a physical release, while North America and Europe only digital.

Square Enix has quietly announced that they will remove The Last Remnant from Steam. The RPG will no longer be available for purchase, but owners of the game can still download and play the game.

The Last Remnant is a turn-based RPG using Unreal Engine 3 and was originally released worldwide on the Xbox 360 back in 2008. One year later the game was ported to the PC with enhanced graphical settings, a "Turbo Mode" increasing battle speed, and a New Game Plus. The PlayStation 3 version however was cancelled.

Thanks to everyone who’s adventured with the Mitras, Yamas, Qsitis and Sovanis!

During a recent shareholder meeting Yoichi Wada, CEO of Square Enix, commented that there might not be a PlayStation 3 version of The Last Remnant.

Summary of Wada's comments: "It's tough on the development side of things to say that you'll release a game on multiple platforms but end up not doing so, Square Enix has to think about profitability. If there's a gap in the release of multiple versions of a game, and if the first version didn't necessarily see such great success, they have to think that there won't be a change in performance on a new platform."

This doesn't mean that there's definitely not going to be a PlayStation 3 version, since he didn't mention the game by name.
