Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of
Square Enix interactive entertainment products in North America, announced today
that its new RPG, THE LAST REMNANT™, is available today worldwide for the Xbox
360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

THE LAST REMNANT is a completely new

keep new ideas flowing, and Square Enix veterans who provide their expertise
from the FINAL FANTASY® series.

be more excited that this title is available to gamers around the world at the
same time. We hope people will embrace our latest RPG and the efforts Square
Enix is taking to expand its audience base globally.”


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.

Rush and Irina are the children of
scientists researching the esoteric Remnants. One day, Irina is kidnapped by a
mysterious group for reasons unknown. As Rush searches for his sister, the world
is thrust into confusion while those who rule bicker over dividing the Remnants’

With the appearance of a mysterious
man who calls himself the Conqueror, Rush is drawn into this international
intrigue. While battling with his emotions in the search for his missing sister,
he discovers he is somehow connected to the enigmatic Conqueror…
