Square Enix has announced that Star Ocean” First Departure R will release on Nintendo Switch, with more news to be shared in the coming months.

Developed by TOSE, Star Ocean: First Departure was an enhanced remake of the original game in the action role-playing series. It was first released for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) in 2007, and now, some 12 years later, is destined for a high-definition remaster on current-gen consoles.

“Star Ocean: First Departure R, the very first entry in the Star Ocean series – setting course for PS4 and Nintendo Switch,” the publisher revealed on Twitter. “Keep communication channels open for further updates.”

With an action-packed combat system and movie sequences from world-famous animation studio Production I.G, the game takes place from Space Date 346.

When a Terran Federation ship touches down on the planet Roak, the crew, assisted by a stalwart band of local heroes, must investigate a mysterious phenomenon to halt a galactic war.
