Side and The Last Story

For immediate release

The Last Story has launched to great critical acclaim and Side is very pleased to have been chosen by Nintendo to carry out the complete British localisation of the project.

The Last Story is the latest JRPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi that lets you take charge of a band of mercenaries and journey with them into a sprawling cinematic adventure. To help bring this story to life Side cast and directed over 400 characters, recording over 13,000 lines.

Laetitia Amoros, senior production manager on the game said;

“With The Last Story we wanted to ensure that the voices we cast matched with the strong characters in the game, and also that they sounded right as a team.  We cast across a wide range of actors and accents to achieve this.”
