Star Ocean: First Departure R is Coming To PS4 and Nintendo Switch

Some cool news for Star Ocean fans as Square Enix has announced Star Ocean: First Departure R will be released on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The news came from the game’s official Twitter account but didn’t provide a ton of information beyond the thought that more info would be coming. The company also posted new artwork on the game’s official website.

If you’re not familiar with the game, Star Ocean: First Departure R is an HD remake of the 2007 game Star Ocean: First Departure, which itself is a remake of the original 1996 Star Ocean released on the Super Famicom. So if you break it down, you’re getting the third or fourth incarnation of a 23-year-old game, depending on how you look at it. But it’s still popular after all these years as one of the last great RPGs to come out on the console before the N64 took over with Nintendo. Here’s hoping Square Enix is releasing info about the game at E3 2019.
