Star Ocean: First Departure R launches December 5 in Japan

They can at least redraw the 2D characters in HD, this is just like a lazy upscale job.

Star Ocean: First Departure R launches December 5 in Japan

Watch the first gameplay trailer.

Star Ocean: First Departure R will launch digitally for PlayStation 4 and Switch on December 5 in Japan for 3,200 yen, Square Enix announced.

A PlayStation 4-exclusive Digital Deluxe Edition including the “Star Ocean Live Collection 2019″ digital soundtrack will also be available for 5,000 yen.

PlayStation Store pre-orders (standard, Digital Deluxe) include a PlayStation 4 dynamic theme feature pixelated character menu icons, a background with characters illustrated by Katsumi Enami, and background music from the game.

Here is an overview of the game’s new features:
High-Definition Visuals – Up-converted from SD to HD resolution, the quality of the game’s graphics and movies has been enhanced.

New Illustrations Based on the Super Famicom Version’s Designs + Character Illustration Switch Feature – Katsumi Enami, who handled the character illustrations for Star Ocean: The Last Hope, has created new character illustrations based on the Super Famicom version’s designs. You can switch between the First Departure and First Departure R illustrations as you like during the game.

Full Voice-Overs from the First Departure Voice Cast + Voice Switch Feature – Since the Super Famicom version had no voice-overs outside of battle, the voice-overs have been newly recorded by both the Super Famicom version cast and the First Departure cast. You can switch between the First Departure and First Departure R voice casts as you like during the game. The voice cast includes:
  • Ratix Farrence

Better get it when it gets discounted. First departure was actually short and it looks like only the visuals are the major thing about this.
