If you never played Star Ocean: The 2nd Story on the PS1, you absolutely cannot miss Star Ocean: The Second Evolution for the PSP. Based on this battle gameplay video, it appears to be an exact remake of The 2nd Story, as we see Claude kicking off the game just as we remember. There are available cinematics to view, though; movies that weren't included in the PS1 iteration, so you should definitely expect some upgrades. The 2nd Story was one of the longest, deepest and most entertaining RPGs of the 32-bit generation, so we're excited to see this remake arrive for a whole new generation. The youngsters can really appreciate this classic when it arrives!
