Is Tri-Ace remaking Star Ocean 2 for the PS Vita?

It’s recently been confirmed that Tri-Ace’s Star Ocean: The Second Evolution (originally The Second Story), arguably the best entry in the series, will be coming to the PS Vita in some form or another (most likely as a downloadable title). Unfortunately, that’s all the information available. Whether the game is being remastered by Tri-Ace (or outsourced) remains to be seen, as does the game’s availability outside of Japan.

However, fans of the series rejoice, as this will mark the first Tri-Ace game published by Square Enix to launch on the system in Japan. We’ll update this post as information is made available.
