Square-Enix bringing Star Ocean: First Departure R to Switch

It was written in the stars

Square-Enix is bringing more RPG goodness to the Switch. The company has announced Star Ocean: First Departure R, an HD remake of the PSP game that launched in 2007. This title is going to see release worldwide, and will include new features as well. No release date or price point were mentioned. Check out more character art and the logo for the game here.


Considering the Star Ocean 2 PSP-to-PS4 port never came west, I don't this will either, sadly. I'd love to be wrong, though.

It's already confirmed for worldwide release. So that great!
This seems like a proper remaster and not a direct port like SO2 was.
So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that SO2 will receive and R version too.

Oh really? In that case, awesome!

Yeah, it's great news! I'm hoping they'll give it a physical release too.
But man I really hope they do the same with SO2 next.

Great news! Even if I had preferred the second one.
But hopefully Star Ocean 2 will follow shortly with it's own R version.
Would love to see them fix baby face Rena from the PSP version.
Make Rena great again! Love her design in the mobile game.
