The first Star Ocean game is coming to PS4 and Switch. Square Enix announced Star Ocean First Departure R on Twitter today, which definitely sounds like either a remake or remaster of the 2008 PSP game, which was itself a remake of the original SNES JRPG which never released in the US.
The folks at Polygon have posted over an hour of English language footage of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, well ahead of its June 28 North American release. I’ve been agonizing over whether to import the Japanese version for a week and a half. This should help tide me over.
The release date for Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has changed in Japan. It was slated for February 25, 2016, but has been moved to March 31. The reason given is that more time is needed for quality reasons. The game doesn’t yet have an international release date.
