The Last Remnant has had a good run from its initial debut on Xbox 360 way back in 2008. While it didn’t set the RPG world on fire the game certainly has its fans, but in a very short period it’s going to be much harder to generate any more. The Last Remnant is being pulled from all digital storefronts effective Tuesday, September 4, around 10AM Pacific. If you own the game it’s yours to re-download forever, but if not then it’s gone.
Or rather, it’s mostly gone. The Xbox 360 got a physical release first, and it’s never been particularly hard to find a used copy kicking around the racks. The problem is the PC version is easily the superior one, and while that got a physical release too (with Steam code included) it’s long gone. Plus it doesn’t seem likely Square-Enix will keep the patches available for download for anyone who’s still got their 360 plugged in and online, although that’s not confirmed. Basically, if you ever had any interest in the game it’s a good idea to either pull the trigger now or mark your calendar and keep an eye out for one final last-minute sale. Of course, The Last Remnant is only $9.99 nowadays, so there’s not a lot of reason to wait. Either way, once September 4 rolls around it’s gone, but on the plus side it’s good to get an official two-week heads-up from a publisher rather than have a game simply disappear from the marketplace as has been far too common lately.
