Star Ocean: The Last Hope Brings The Series To PC With 4K Remaster

Square Enix is redoing Star Ocean: The Last Hope for PlayStation 4 and PC.

In an odd announcement, Square Enix has revealed that it will be releasing Star Ocean: The Last Hope 4K & Full HD Remaster on PlayStation 4 and PC. The game will be a digital-only release in Japan on November 28, 2017 in Japan. As the name suggests, the game's resolution will be bumped up to 1080p on PlayStation 4 and 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro and PC.

Here's a full list of game features, translation from Square Enix' Japanese release by Gematsu.

PlayStation 4 Version

  • Resolution: From 720p on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 –> PlayStation 4 Pro: Maximum 4K / PlayStation 4: Full HD
  • Functionality to change image settings (shadow and blur settings, etc.)
  • Trophy support
  • Share button support

PC Version

  • Functionality to change screen resolution
  • Functionality to change image settings (shadow and blur settings, etc.)
  • Steam Achievements support
  • Mouse, keyboard, and PC controller support
  • Functionality to take screenshots without the UI

This is the first Star Ocean game to come to PC, but it's a bit perplexing that Square Enix wanted to start here. The Last Hope isn't one of the Star Ocean games that's high on fans' lists. Some would rather have a PC release of the last Star Ocean game, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, or the title that preceded The Last Hope, Star Ocean: Till the End of Time. Regardless, some fans are just happy seeing the series on PC and hopeful for future releases.

There's currently no word on a localized release of Star Ocean: The Last Hope 4K & Full HD Remaster.
