Xbox 360 RPG Press Conference: Star Ocean 4 Announced
At the press conference today Square-Enix announced that tri-Ace’s Star Ocean 4 now titled Star Ocean: The Last Hope is in development for the Xbox 360.
The game is said to have a science fiction feel to it. You will be able to travel across the stars going from planet to planet. The combat system is getting new features implemented and the game is scheduled to release sometime in 2009.
For those of you wondering if this is exclusive for the Xbox 360 or not Square-Enix producer Yoshinori Yamagishi had this to say:
We cannot announce anything on that. We can say that it will be released first [on the Xbox 360]. Whether we’ll release it on the PS3 is undecided. We may release it, we may not.“
It wouldn’t make sense to announce a PS3 version at a Microsoft event but I think it will go to the PS3 somewhere down the line. Xbox 360 owners get first crack at the game when it releases in 2009 anyway so it doesn’t really matter if you own a 360.
