Star Ocean PS3 Will Enjoy Worldwide Simultaneous Launch
The big news gets better for role-playing fans.
Despite that excellent announcement, we still weren't sure if Square-Enix would bring the PS3 version to North America or Europe. Well, perhaps surprisingly, we have learned that this new and improved Star Ocean will actually have a worldwide simultaneous launch! That's right; the game will arrive everywhere on February 9 of next year, and that should come as a relief to US and European gamers who have been waiting for Square-Enix to make The Last Hope multiplatform. The addition of new characters, an improved aiming system, both English and Japanese audio, improved menus, and a few other appreciated tweaks will make the "International" version the best one available. Like several other RPGs of the generation (including Eternal Sonata and Tales of Vesperia), this title debuted on the Xbox 360, and PS3 owners were a trifle annoyed at first. But patience is a virtue, and now that it's coming, you only have to wait a few months longer.
As far as most RPG fans are concerned, the more available titles there are, the better. Of course, we all still want Final Fantasy XIII, but there are other games coming.
