No explanation was given but on September 11th, 2018 Square Enix announced that a remastered edition of the game would be coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 on December 6th for $19.99. Dubious as the practice is, it seems most likely that Square Enix delisted the Steam version to make sure that PlayStation 4 was the only place to buy the game digitally. The remastered game has since been released on Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms but has yet to return to Steam.

The Last Remnant remains available on physical media for Xbox 360 and PC although some state that the PC version is vastly improved over the Xbox 360 original.

About the Game

Mitra, yama, qsiti, sovani… These four races exist in one world.

A world filled with Remnants — mysterious artifacts from an ancient era.
Who created the Remnant? How long ago? And for what purpose?
With these questions left unanswered, the Remnants became beneficial tools used for the good of civilization.
The world was at peace…or so it seemed. Who was to know such darkness lay in wait?
The powers of the Remnants slowly began to change the world’s balance.
A rift slowly formed between those who ruled and those who obeyed.

This was the dawning of a new era — an era of countless frays that would be brought upon the world by those enslaved by their own lust for power. A thousand years later, the journey of one young man begins.
