May 10, 2007 - At the Square Enix press conference today, Star Ocean 4 was officially announced for next-gen consoles. There were no details given on which consoles that actually entails, but we can assume that at least one of them is PS3.
Footage of what the game may look like was no where to be found at the event (all we got was a title screen), but the producer assured us that the team was working hard on the game, this being the first next-gen title for the series.
The Star Ocean series is one of Square Enix's lesser known franchises that has received critical acclaim in the press, and a cult following among RPG fans. By mixing sci-fi, fantasy, and real-time battles, the series has it's own unique footprint amongst the Square Enix family of games. No release date was announced for any of the new Star Ocean games, but fret not. We expect details to start flowing in the coming months, so stay tuned.
