My only experience with the series is with The Second Story back on PS1. And although I own a PSP I never got around to the remake of the first game. The series is as good as the Tales of series, so I look forward to this. Although I had hoped the Switch would get a port of Last Hope HD that the PS4 got a couple years ago.

Oh well, better to start at the beginning I suppose.

Star Ocean is one of those RPGs I've always heard about but know nothing about. Tbh, I think it would be fun going into this without knowing ANYTHING (unless the game gets bad reviews or something).

Whilst I only played 2nd Evolution on PSP.... Had 'finished' it 3 times, for each character Had just done Maze of Tribulations when game became unplayable UMD must have got worn out or something?
Guess we'll have to wait for official announcement but it seems almost inevitable they'll Switch all of them now

I've played SO 2-5, never 1 though so this would be a good opportunity to fix that. 2 is reputed to be the best. 3 is very good as well though its big late-game plot twist is on the marmite side.

I'm glad this game won't be lost to time, and yet I also hope they make some effort to improve it. I mean, I always say that about Star Ocean games, because they're exceptionally flawed games made on a tight budget, and I'd love it if they could ever reach their potential. The PSP remake was still better than the original, but that wasn't going to be hard when the SFC original was essentially made from Tales of Phantasia's leftovers that they pulled out of a bin and stuck together with spaceship-shaped stickers and rubber bands. There's a fair bit that they could do to tighten up the combat, as well as removing some of the annoying difficulty spikes and bugs I encountered.
