The downloadable re-release of Star Ocean: Second Evolution will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this month in Japan, Square Enix announced.
Are they not releasing a PS3 version?
So2 was my fave game of all time. Its painful to see the game adapt to the horrible tv anime artstyle.
I take it you must have missed this? https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I hate to break it to you and your nostalgia goggles but that's pretty much always been what they do. Both SO specifically and JRPGs in general. The primary difference is that in the late 90s games were either sprite based or block monsters and both typically (there are exceptions) do a poor job representing the anime standards of the time. If you need proof, look to just about any character portrait in any JRPG from pre PS2 era and notice they'd almost invariably be right at home in an anime.
I disagree. Look at so3 and so4. The moeblob style is like watching the game re enacted by Hamtaro..
A western release please too...
Likely it come around spring next year
I want to replay this game. Here's hoping the english version gets released too.
Was SAO inspired by this game?
Actually, I think Sword Art Online was inspired by the .Hack series. Oddly enough, they're both made by the same company, Namco Bandai.
Uh... SAO came first, and was made by a person, not a company.
Actually sly, both came out in 2002. Chances are the first .hack game(i.e. first of .hack) was in production longer than the first SAO light novel. If we're going by release though. .hack//infection was june 2002, and the first SAO light novel was Oct 2002. However, given how close both were it's safe to say NEITHER influenced the other.
@Sly-Lupin You DO realize we're talking about the GAMES, not the IPs themselves right? The .Hack games came out LONG before the first SAO game. And they WERE NOT made by one person.
I showed my Dad this. He freaked out hes 28 years old. this was one of his top RPG games. He hopes it get s a US date. This game was amazing man.
