Nintendo has high hopes for The Last Story. They believe Mistwalker’s game is big enough to get people to buy a Wii, which is why a hardware bundle is coming to stores too.
The Last Story console package comes with a standard white Wii, a Classic Controller Pro, and The Last Story for 25,800 yen ($310). Since Nintendo didn’t make a special console its aiming at new Wii owners. A standalone Wii, that is one without any game, retails for 20,000 yen ($240) in Japan.
Nintendo also has some sweet spoils for current Wii owners. First run copies of The Last Story include a visual book and a mini-soundtrack CD in a bonus called Elements of The Last Story.
The game comes out on January 27, 2011 in Japan.
