The Last Remnant Screens, Now In English

By Spencer . October 2, 2008 . 1:45pm

It looks like the Last Remnant includes reaction commands during battles. The screenshot above shows a player blocking an attack by pulling the right trigger. Interesting, but the Last Remnant’s combat system still doesn’t sound that different from other RPGs. Instead of commanding individual party members you bark orders to unions (read: parties) like “attack […]

The Last Remnant Lets You "Tear Them To Shreds!"

By Spencer . September 24, 2008 . 8:37am

During combat you don’t control a handful of god-like warriors in the Last Remnant, you control multiple parties each consisting of up to five characters. However, the command system is quite similar to your run of the mill turn based RPG. Instead of selecting fight you give each union commands like “time to get physical!” […]

Take a look at a town from the Last Remnant

By Spencer . August 28, 2008 . 5:04pm

Every time we see screenshots of the Last Remnant it’s usually combat, frontal character portraits, and combat. Rush, the protagonist, does other things too like visiting towns. The Last Remnant news blog mentions Athium’s main street is a shopping district with weapon and armor stores. Courage District (pictured above) has pubs and guilds, places where […]

Watch – The Last Remnant TGS trailer

By Spencer . October 22, 2007 . 4:56am

I’m guessing this has been floating around for awhile, but in case you missed it Square-Enix threw up a larger version of the Last Remnant trailer on the Japanese page. When I saw this about a month ago I wasn’t sure what to think. I still don’t know what to think besides imagining a Dynasty […]

Watch: The Last Remnant teaser

By Spencer . July 5, 2007 . 3:15pm

Square-Enix released a new video of The Last Remnant, an RPG “for the world”. After seeing it I was immediately reminded of Dynasty Warriors and I’m not sure if that is a good thing. Drakengard was Square-Enix’s take on that genre and it turned out decent, not great. However, this is supposed to be a […]
