Star Ocean: TLH heading to PS3

International SKU for Japan in February.

Square Enix plans to release an International, PS3 version of Star Ocean: The Last Hope this February in Japan.

On 4th February, to be precise, say the pages of Famitsu magazine (read by Siliconera).

That date is important because International editions pack English and Japanese voice overs, and, given the region-free quality of PS3 games, that makes importing a solid option. German, French and "other" languages are also supported, but only in text form.

The only barrier is the quality of the game, which struggled for a weak science-fiction, of all things - the battle system and collect-'em-up elements were good.

What areas, if any, the International release will polish, remains to be seen.
