Truly no pun intended in that title there. Nintendo of Europe has released a really, really big list of upcoming DS and Wii games, running to the end of the third quarter. The full list can be found after the cut, though the sad news is that there are only about 3 games to be excited about in the entire lot.
Mistwalker’s The Last Story, a.k.a “Not Final Fantasy rehash” has been allowed to simmer for a while and I am definitely excited about Sakaguchi’s upcoming game. Unfortunately, it might be his last.
