We are about to close out yet another year without Final Fantasy VII Remake or Kingdom Hearts III. Nintendo, in cooperation with Platinum Games is launching Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for the Switch. Square Enix had a strong lineup this year, but there is nothing present as a closer like last year's Final Fantasy XV. Instead, the company went diggin in the crates (again) to breathe new life into an older title. Fortunately for them, Star Ocean – The Last Hope has aged quite well.
Developed in partnership with tri-Ace, the prequel to the original Star Ocean game has been remastered in full high-definition, with added 4K support and PC keyboard/mouse and controller support. The action-packed role-playing game takes players on an epic journey across the universe in an immersive story of survival. Players can enjoy quintessential Star Ocean features, including strategic real-time combat, a deep Item Creation System and Private Action system that explores character relationships and subplots for a richer and more rewarding story. and an exhilarating Blindside battle system, which fuses evasion and offense.
Until December 12th, PlayStation®Plus members and STEAM users who purchase the game will receive a 10% discount. Additionally, those who purchase on STEAM before December 12th will receive an exclusive downloadable mini-soundtrack featuring music from the game. Those who purchase from the PlayStation®Store before January 8th, will receive an exclusive PlayStation®4 system theme and 12 PlayStation™Network avatars featuring the main characters.
