September 15, 2009 // 12:37 am - Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope is officially heading to the PlayStation 3 as rumored, despite Square Enix denying it initially.

The latest Famitsu issue (pictured below) reveals that the previously Xbox 360 exclusive game will be ported to the PS3 as Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. It will be released in Japan on February 4, 2010 and ship simultaneously worldwide

To quote: "The tri-Ace developed, Square Enix published Star Ocean: The Last Hope was released on the Xbox 360 earlier this year. The title is not an Xbox 360 exclusive, it's coming to the PlayStation 3.

Dubbed Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, the game will be hitting the PS3 February 4, 2010 and priced at 8,190 (US$90).

The game features reworked menu screens and a tweaked battle system with auto-targeting. SO4: International also features English and Japanese voice acting options. It really is international!"

I played this game all the way through and enjoyed it on the most part. Some of the voices were a bit annoying (Sarah and Lymle particularly, kay?) and I wanted to slap the lead character everytime he turned emo, but overall it was pretty good.

If it had come out for the PS3 at the same time as 360 then I definitely would have bought it for that.

It's a bit fortunate for me though, as I don't really concern myself with 360 Achievments, but I tend to spend a lot of time on PS3 Trophies (don't ask me why ) and this game will have some pretty time-consuming trophies.
