When you think about JRPGs, many titles come to mind, with the most prominent being the Final Fantasy series. However, Square Enix has developed quite a few more, over the years. One in particular is the often underrated Star Ocean series. It’s one that is near and dear to mine and many other JRPG fans’ hearts. Thankfully, Square Enix has made it their mission to remaster them, one at a time. Next up is Star Ocean: The Last Hope!
If you don’t remember it, here is a trailer from 2011, courtesy of IGN.
Developed in partnership with tri-Ace, STAR OCEAN: THE LAST HOPE takes place at the beginning of the STAR OCEAN series timeline and is a full HD remaster with added 4K support* and PC keyboard, mouse and controller support. The game takes players on an epic journey across the universe in an immersive, intergalactic story of survival where humanity must turn to the stars in search of a new home. Featuring strategic real-time combat, the remastered title also keeps the original deep Item Creation System and Private Action system that explores character relationships and subplots for a richer and more rewarding story, and exhilarating Blindside battle system, which fuses evasion and offense.
For $20.99, fans can jump back into this interstellar adventure, digitally, on the PlayStation®Store and Steam on November 28, 2017. To save 10%, buy it before December 12, 2017. Plus, if you purchase from the PlayStation®Store before January 8th, you’ll receive an exclusive PlayStation®4 system theme and 12 PlayStation™Network avatars featuring the main characters.
