A first look at the upcoming remake.
Earlier in the year it was announced that the first entry in the Star Ocean series would be getting a new remaster in the form of Star Ocean: First Departure R. It marked the first time the title made it outside Japan via the PSP and now we get some of our first screenshots and details from it.
The game will feature not only a high definition upgrade from the original PSP release, but new voice recordings from the original Star Ocean cast. The character illustrations have been redrawn to be closer to the original designs, but don’t worry, you can see still switch back and forth between that and the classic look.
Star Ocean: First Departure R will release for PlayStation 4 and Switch at some point, but no date is set as of now. The game will be featured at the Tokyo Game Show, and in the meantime you can take a look at some screenshots to get an idea of what to expect from the game’s upgraded visuals.
