Square Enix has announced that Star Ocean: First Departure R will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. First Departure R is an HD port of the PSP remake of the first Star Ocean game. The original SNES/Super Famicom release of the game launched in Japan in July 1996. The PSP remake first released in Japan in December 2007 and in North America and Europe in October 2008. The remake used an altered version of Star Ocean: The Second Story‘s engine which resulted in the First Departure playing very similarly to The Second Story. It also featured animated cutscenes and new artwork by Production I.G as well as voice acting.
More details on the HD port will be released at a later time.
