A little over a couple of months ago, Square Enix unveiled Star Ocean: The Second Story R, a remake of the classic PS1 RPG sporting a gorgeous new 2.5D aesthetic, and with the game now approaching its early November launch, the publisher is beginning to reveal more details on it.
For instance, the remake’s animated opening movie has now been revealed. Offering multiple glimpses of its sci-fi fantasy world, its cast of characters, and some of the key story moments that fans of the original will be familiar with, the cinematic is set to the theme song stella, performed by Japanese duo SUIREN.
Star Ocean: The Second R is promising to be a significant overhaul of the original game, boasting completely redone 2.5D visuals, new combat mechanics, a rearranged soundtrack (with the original also included), full voice acting, and more.
It’s set to launch on November 2 for PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
