    Square Enix have announced that they're remaking Star Ocean First Departure R for Nintendo Switch and PS4. I've always had a soft spot for games in the genre, so kinda looking forward to it.

    Since the last few releases weren't exactly well recieved by fans, it'll be interesting to see where they take this. Hopefully they don't mess it up.

    I wonder how much they’re “actually” going to remake this game. I did really enjoy the game, so if they just upscale it, they have to try and fuck it up.

    I still think Second Story is the best one. Though I think the Star Ocean fanbase is really busted. There’s only one game they care about, and the rest are either garbage, or ignored. Most people forget the first game exists, the few who knew the second game exists love that one. Most people were only exposed to the third game, and those guys ignore the first two. Then they bitch about 4 and 5.

    This is why I don’t care much about what fans think sometimes

    This is happening for one reason. And one reason only.

    So gently breaking the news that they're redoing Chrono Trigger wont cause heads to explode.

    Yeah totally....
