Lazulis Island, location of the like-named harbour town of Lazulis City. A band of mercenaries, headed by Zael and his surrogate brother Dagran, come in search of work. They are given a task by the governing Count Arganan, which will take Zael and his band of mercenaries across the expanse of Lazulis Island and then beyond, over the ocean.

The Last Story is an action role-playing game based around handling what the enemies focus on. The player controls Zael directly, giving commands to the rest of the party, who will draw the attention of any enemies he attacks. Other enemies may or may not focus on him, and instead focus on other members of the party. By attacking these enemies, Zael can draw their attention away from his allies.

The game features two multiplayer modes. A co-operative mode, where up to six players can complete missions together, and a competitive mode, where as many players battle each other until only one of them remains standing

In mid 2010 there was some confusion in response to a post on Mistwalker's official blog about the development team’s latest proceedings in Japanese, that The Last Story could be Hironobu Sakaguchi's last work and that he may retire after the game's release. However, after the official English translation of the same post a few weeks later, it turned out that Mr. Sakaguchi's comments about the game being his last were merely a figure of speech and that he'd rather treated it as if it were his last.

Operation Rainfall

A large fan campaign called Operation Rainfall was formed in order to convince Nintendo of America to localize The Last Story, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Pandora's Tower. Though all three games were eventually released for American markets, it is unclear how much of an impact the campaign had on Nintendo of America's decision to do so.
