It’s been a while since I wrote about a musical piece but this is by far, one of my favorites. Written by famed Nobuo Uematsu, this beautiful piece is far more than the sum of its parts. Consisting of the violin, flute, string and brass for good measure, the musical theme for ‘The Last Story‘ is more than what is typically found in most JRPG. This in itself and the experience it gives the player provides a strong, interesting journey and surpasses what people have come accustomed to when relating to this genre.
The violin single handedly is the most important instrument of this amazing piece. When regards to the other instruments, it not only complicates the violin but emphasizes its importance. It’s tone is reminiscent of a lullaby, calm and yet full of life and is easily recognizable after the first few simple notes.

This Wii game is amazing and I highly recommend it anyone who enjoys the RPG genre. Without giving anything away, The Last Story was created by the creator of the Final Fantasy series, Hironobu Sakaguchi, and the music was composed by one of my favorite composers, Nobuo Uematsu. This game by far, one the best RPG I’ve had the pleasure of playing. The Last Story is brimming with story about love, betrayal, conquest, forgiveness, humor, and unexpected twists. There were many times when I thought that the story was coming to an end but discovered that the story was far from over. After it was all completed, and the story finally came to an end. The story was tied up nicely in such a satisfying way and I felt a sense of complete satisfaction. The only disappointing thing I felt afterwards was that it ended.
You owe it to yourself to experience this breathtaking adventure. Please don’t forget that if you own the Wii U, you can experience The Last Story on that console as well since the Wii U is backwards compatible with the Wii.source: youtube
