Meet The Last Story's hero and heroine... and their tiger?
Latest high level details from the game's development blog.
We got a glimpse at The Last Story's hero and heroine last week. Well, their backs, at least.
This week, the game's development blog was updated with a closer look:
The director (still unidentified) confirms that the characters depicted in the illustration are the main character and heroine.
"There is a wall between the two," he writes. Based off the director's comments, it seems that there's something keeping the two apart and unable to live their dreams together.
The director also writes that in The Last Story, there will be a number of other stories besides the story of these two characters. He mentions:
- The fear of speaking your true feelings
- The mystery of the father who went missing on boat
- The difficulty a leader has in making decisions
- The close accomplice who's turned to evil
- The foolish archaeologist's prison break
Concludes the director, "It's very important to merge battles and gameplay with story. Neither can stand on its own. Once both are connected together, the characters will rise up as "human" within the container of a game."
The game's producer (also unidentified) states, "The characters who appear in The Last Story all walk their own paths and have their own stories." He likens this to the real world, where no one has lived their lives following the same path as you.
The main part of The Last Story's story will focus on the main character, says the producer. However, he believes players will also have a chance to be touched by the stories other characters as well. "Once you've been touched by that, it's likely that you'll be able to feel their [the characters outside of the main character] true feelings, which you did not see before."
That's fine and all, but what's with the tiger?
