Cross-platform gaming just got some heavy weight added to it. Square Enix, Co., Ltd. announced today its first next generation multiplatform title, THE LAST REMNANT. Revealed at a press event held in Tokyo before the company’s "Square Enix Party 2007," held on May 12 and 13 at Makuhari Messe, the new game is planned for release on PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360. THE LAST REMNANT is positioned to take on the world, with a simultaneous release in Japan and North America and a European release planned.

Well at least they did not completely forget about us here in Europe though I am curious as to how long of a lag there will be between the Japan/N.A. release and the rest of us.

 THE LAST REMNANT is a completely original RPG title, taking advantage of the power of next-generation hardware to build a lush, realtime fantasy world. Making full use of the power of Epic Games' flexible middleware solution, Unreal Engine 3, Square Enix can now achieve simultaneous development on multiple platforms.

There are no screen shots available that I could find but I will keep looking. Coming from Square-Enix I expect great things from this game and with multiplatform play I think that will lend some credibility to that particular feature and maybe nudge some other big players to begin thinking about it.

The game's battle system has been carefully crafted to deliver a brand-new experience for gamers, as they control forces in massive battles between up to seventy different units at once. Today's press conference also featured a demonstration of the game, showing off the dynamic world and sprawling landscapes of THE LAST REMNANT.

About THE LAST REMNANT

PRODUCT SUMMARY
Platform: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 (Multiplatform)
Release: TBA (Simultaneous in Japan and North America)

STORY
Long ago, the world was filled with Remnants — mysterious artifacts from an ancient civilization. But as time passed, the powers of the Remnants began to shift the world's balance. As the rift widened between those who ruled and those who were ruled over, a new era dawned: one of countless frays brought upon the world by those enslaved by their own lust for power.

A thousand years later, the journey of one young man begins...

FEATURES
Imagine a vast, war-torn battlefield, scarred by years of conflict. Countless enemies surround the player, who is backed up by his own army. Threatened by numerous foes and saved in the nick of time by allies, players will feel the true tension of a soldier on the battlefield. In THE LAST REMNANT, as many as seventy units will duke it out at once in fierce yet beautiful battles. Backed by the visual power of next-gen hardware, the unique play style and battle system will challenge and invigorate players like never before.

Let's face it people, S-E know what they are doing. They have not only some of the best looking games on the planet but some of the most interesting storylines and best gameplay. So we will expect very big things from this title, I sure hope they don't let us down.
