Star Ocean PSP for October

Remake of the SNES version.

Square Enix plans to release PSP game Star Ocean: First Departure in Europe this October.

This, a remake of Star Ocean for SNES, will mark the first time the space role-playing adventure has appeared outside of Japan.

Of course, being some 12 years later, Star Ocean: First Departure will be treated to brand new cut-scenes and polished visuals, while retaining plenty of interplay between key characters. Oh no Melanie Mangle has been shot by a duck hunter, for instance.

Star Ocean: The Second Evolution is also being remade for PSP, although no European plans have been hinted at yet.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope, the fourth instalment in the series, will be released on Xbox 360 sometime next year. No other platforms have been associated with the game.
