Star Ocean: The Last Hope Remastered Announced for Japan

Star Ocean: The Last Hope, the fourth entry in the Star Ocean franchise, is getting remastered for Japan.

Star Ocean has long been a popular franchise in Japan, so it’s no surprise that Square Enix is looking to bring another entry to the PS4 and PC. The Last Hope, the fourth game in the franchise is set to be remastered for both platforms in November, but only in Japan. It is unknown if the game will be released in North America and Europe.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope is an HD remaster of the international edition that launched on PS3 in 2010. The game will feature PS4 Pro support, which will allow owners to play the game in 4K. Base PS4 owners will be able to play the game in ‘full HD.’ The PC version allows players to remove the UI and comes equipped with a photo mode. Finally, the remaster will feature Trophies on PS4, and Achievements on Steam.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope originally launch in 2009 as an Xbox 360 exclusive before eventually being ported to the PS3 a year later. The game, despite being the fourth entry in the franchise, is actually a prequel to the first game. With the world on the brink of destruction, the surviving population hatches a plan to send the first human expedition into outer space to locate a suitable planet for humanity to settle.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope Remastered hits PS4 and PC on November 28 in Japan. We’ll let you know is Square Enix announces a western release date for the game.
