It looks like Square Enix has finally, and quietly, pulled the plug on the PlayStation 3 version of Last Remnant. The latest issue of the company's "Square Enix Magazine" retail promotional magazine does not list the title in its upcoming releases calendar.

The issue in question is vol.13, which features Final Fantasy XIII on the cover. A release calendar in the back of the issue lists titles of note from the company and its publishing/distribution partners (Ubisoft, Disney, and Taito). Last Remnant 2 is not listed in the date TBA area, which includes such games as The Third Birthday, NieR Gestalt/Replicant, and Front Mission Evolved.

There are a couple of things that should be noted before contacting your local representative about this issue. First, Last Remnant still appears in the PS3 release calendar at the Square Enix official site. Additionally, the game appears in the release calendar of the latest Weekly Famitsu.

The PS3 version of Last Remnant previously made headlines in August when Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada made some subtle suggestions that the game would not make it out.

The 360 version of the game was released a little over one year ago, and was followed closely by a PC version.

Well, if they are taking it off to give them more time to release any other games, then fine by me. The battle system in that game is WAY to random, anyway. Let it stay on whatever system that it came out on. But, some people may be dissapointed, I think, :hmmm: If they exist :P
Ouch, glad I have it for thr 360. Yeah I remember my ex showing me the PC version. Which confused me as I thought the PS3 version would have quickly followed. Maybe it has been canned or perhaps been placed on hold for a later date while they focus on 13?
Nah, I think it's just going to be canned. It didn't really get good reviews and I think the sale figures might have been pretty low. It's a shame really, I was a decent game though I'd only have bought it for the PS3 if they sorted out the technical glitches/bugs =/
Ugh. I had faith that it would come to the PS3. Really I did. But steadily I was preparing myself for the inevitable news that the game was canceled. I heard that just because games remain on the official site, doesn't mean it'll amount to anything tangible, so I think this pretty much confirmed LR ain't coming to the PS3 *pouts*

I'm still interested in checking the game out, so I may very well try to find the PC version (although I'm told just from a local EB Game retailer, they said they weren't carrying it anymore Dx) and finally give non console gaming a try *ponders*
