Star Ocean-themed PSP revealed

Nothing confirmed for Europe.

Square Enix has taken the wraps off of a fancy Star Ocean-themed PSP Slim & Lite in Japan, which it will release bundled with SNES remake The First Departure in December.

The second game in the acclaimed role-playing series is also being remade for the PSP, although both titles are currently only confirmed for Japan, with European appearances lurking in "TBC" land.

Star Ocean is a sci-fi-inspired series from developer tri-Ace, the mastermind behind the excellent Valkyrie Profile role-playing games.

Both The First Departure and The Second Evolution remakes will feature new cutscenes, graphics, fully voiced dialogue, and new playable characters.

Square Enix is also working on a fresh instalment in Star Ocean 4, although platforms and specifics are not confirmed.
