Square Enix recently released a trailer for Star Ocean: First Departure R. For those who are not aware, the game is an enhanced port of Star Ocean: First Departure, which in itself was a remake of the first Star Ocean. The first Star Ocean game launched exclusively in Japan for the Super Famicom in 1996. Due to Enix’s North American branch closing, the game was not released outside of Japan. Star Ocean: First Departure launched for PSP in Japan in 2007 and worldwide in 2008.
The trailer takes a look of the game’s story as well as previewing some of the new features in the new version of the game.
Some of the new features include:
- Newly Balanced Battle Mechanics
- 2X Speed Toggle
- English/ Japanese Voice Options
Star Ocean: First Departure R will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo on December 5, 2019.
