Square Enix has announced that Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope is heading for the PS3. This new version of the game will be named Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope International and will feature reworked menu screens and a tweaked battle system with auto-targeting. The game will also include both English and Japanese audio.

The game will hit the shelves on February 4, 2010.

Targeting is a weak point of the battle system in the 360 version. The audio option is welcome too, for some reason SO just never gets voice acting quite right.

I held out from the 360 version and now I'm glad.. I can wait longer... long live the SQE ports!

It baffled me that they were making it a timed exclusive in the first place. Every previous Star Ocean game was with a Sony system (besides the original). Not to mention they re-released the first two games for PSP. So alienating your entire fan base by switching to 360 confused me.

@The FFFanatic - Money makes everything less confusing, in a business sense anyways.

alongside English and Japanese audio, SO4 International will feature English, Japanese, French, Italian, German and Spanish text/menus.

hmmm if you play the english enough and memorize where certain menu things are, you can learn multiple languages by switching to a foreign one! hahah

@DLM I'm not sure that I'd buy an rpg to learn another language from the menus unless you really need to know how to say Character, Status, Skill, and Equip in numerous European languages.
