Square Enix have announced that Star Ocean: First Departure R is scheduled for release on Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. This is essentially a remake of the original Star Ocean game and essentially a remake of the PSP version of the game too.

Star Ocean: First Departure initially came out in 2008 and it has you controlling a group of three friends who are trying to find a cure for a new disease before being caught up in an emerging intergalactic war.

We can expect visual updates and some new features along the line but we are yet to see which innovations Square has in store for us. While waiting for Star Ocean 6, this remaster will sure come in handy!
