UPDATE: Yep, this was a joke folks. Happy April Fools! For those that are angry, take heart that April Fools is only once a year. You should probably avoid the internet on this day next year. Make a mental note 😛

oprainfall can proudly announce the reveal of The Last Story II. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed Wii JRPG will be exclusively released on the Wii U, worldwide, at the end of the year – and we have the first details.

Going along the same lines as the Final Fantasy series, the story of The Last Story II has no connection to the adventures of Zael and company. It has an all new protagonist, is set in a completely different world and has a brand new battle system.

The story tells the tale of Cirk Leysta, a spoilt prince who lives in the kingdom of En Rev that’s in the world of Novena Gig. When his father, King Rick, forbids him from joining the daily patrol, outside the kingdom’s grounds, he goes anyway without his father knowing. Deep in the woods, the patrol are ambushed and massacred by a powerful force, which reveals itself to be a little girl. When the girl goes to attack Cirk she is knocked back by some unseen, protective energy that surrounds him. Cirk quickly runs back to his kingdom, only to find it demolished, in flames and all his loved ones dead. Vowing for revenge, Cirk sets out on a journey to find out who killed his family and his entire kingdom.

Two pieces of concept art have been released:

The Last Story II

Cirk on the right, but who’s the girl?


The Last Story II

What power’s does Cirk possess?

Who wiped out En Rev? Who was that little girl? And what mysterious power does Cirk possess?

Check out the first teaser trailer for The Last Story II below:

About David Rawlings

David Rawlings, or ‘Rawky’ as we like to call him, joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign at the beginning. He’s British and found solace with us as he was able to understand our pain about Nintendo and their localizing faux pas. He’s a big fan of the letter ‘U’ and refuses to remove them from words, even though we constantly ask him to. He also believes it’s about time Princess Daisy got kidnapped.

  • Thaelyn

    I really hate this day.

    • Spookyryu

      Damn I hate it too, I’m still leveling up in the multiplayer in the first one

    • Vinicius

      At least you can play the multyplayer on the first one. I’ve never been able to play it. And I also hate this day.

  • WHY


    • FrancisUnderwood0482

      you beat me to my comment…

  • I hope all of you go to hell.lol jk

  • Matt

    Haha, it was clearly obvious to me that this was fake but that didn’t make it any less hilarious watching the video.

  • That’s not funny 🙁

  • Kroisos

    I hope you die. I hope we both die.

    • Effendo

      I am drowning…..

  • Shulknameholderthing

    Quite LITERALLY, a buncha jokers.

  • handsomejack47

    Really people? All of the typos and bad grammar didn’t give it away?

  • I hate this days because some publishers decide to make a real announcement on this day so you think its a joke

  • Gary65

    FFS YOU DO NOT JOKE AROUND WITH SHIT LIKE THIS!!!!!!! This sounded so awesome & I was so excited. F you all.

  • This wasn’t funny, nor did it fool anyone…

  • SoraWTK

    Well, the Last Story was pretty boring, so the fact that this isn’t real makes me more happy than sad.

    • FrancisUnderwood0482

      I bought it blind (should have test-pirated it first). Am Happy I got the Super-Deluxe version with the art-book and stuff, and loved the Characters (especially the Drunk) and the Combat, but the game just felt like Combat! filler, filler, filler, Combat! repeat for 25-30 hours.
      Because of this Pirated Pandora’s Tower. Glad I did…won’t be buying that one for sure.

  • I thought for a moment, for a brief moment, that this might actually be true. I mean, Operation Rainfall has already done one April Fools gag. But two in one day? That’s an academy record. I applaud you, Operation Rainfall. I applaud you even as I wipe away my massive crocodile tears of disappointment.

  • John Ellis

    You already did this with Catherine. Same joke won’t work twice.

  • Ace

    I love it!

  • Karaszure

    God dammit, I hate you guys so fucking much for this. >_>

  • This wasn’t very funny. Seriously. The Last Story Should have 2 and new story and same persons. Not like it’s a complete new. 🙁 I’m angry. Very angry.

    • FrancisUnderwood0482

      I’m betting it will get a sequel…will it appear on WiiU though? That’s another question entirely.

    • lonewolf88

      yes most likely if it doesn’t then people won’t know the story

  • Ooooh you jerks!

    I thought it was a Feng Shen Ji game…

  • Ninty

    So what’s the artwork from then?

    • dubaloseven

      The second one is really cool actually.

  • GJ

    You can´t fool me those images are from Feng Shen Ji 😛

  • Lol, what a relief. I actually thought this was real.

  • Leon x


  • Ibi Salmon


  • Glad I expected this, April Fools + Youtube videos = Don’t click it. . . EVER!

    Now, lets try a post on here without an obvious phony announcement.

  • Fuckkkkk!!!!!!! I bloody fell for it.

  • MusubiKazesaru

    we got Riki Rolled

  • Fucker

    If i will see you anytimes i will kill you and rape your shit outta ya…

    You broke my fucking heart for a fucking april fool? That was your death sentence.

    You are a motherfucking motherfucker and you will die…

  • Fun Happy Alert Energetic

    Yeah, that’s really annoying. D’: I had high-hopes for a sequel. P.s. ‘ I bought, ‘The Last of Us, Pandoras Tower & Xenoblade Chronicles’.

    But, damn they costed alot. Like, $110 Australian. Which’s basically $102 US. For each.
