Star Ocean: The Last Hope Release Bumped Up

By Spencer . January 9, 2009 . 10:29am

solh Like any year we’re bound to see lots of games get delayed, but not Star Ocean 4!


Square Enix covertly changed its release date from March 3 to February 24. We get Star Ocean: The Last Hope a full week earlier than expected and that launch date is only five days after it comes out in Japan. When it comes to Square Enix’s Xbox 360 games we’ve been getting more worldwide launches and less waiting.

    ill second that but i doubt it :(anynews on a euro release date??

  • Since you said “worldwide” does that include EU?
    (yeah we’re all eurobitches here :D)

    Anyone knows if this is coming out for the PS3. If not then I would have to pick it up for 360. I hope is not like Eternal Sonata where the PS3 version recevies more content. Sony platform is not only receiving less rpg games but also the games are delay longer than the 360.

    Sorry to get your hopes up the Feb. 24 date is just for the US, Star Ocean: The Last Hope should be coming out in Europe in the future though, but I don’t even think Star Ocean: Second Evolution has been given a formal date over there. Square Enix probably has to space out stuff more since Disgaea 3 is coming in Feb., etc. So, after Star Ocean: Second Departure you should get info on Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

  • Too bad but congratulations US-citizens and importers ;)

    Hey Spencer,
    check this out:

    gamestop is listing the release date as 2-03-2009. So do you think they haven’t updating this yet and this is a temporary placeholder or do you think they are bumping it up even more?


  • Douglas

    Word is going around that the European date is 24th April; which isn’t bad considering how long delays have been in the past.

  • What about UK for F**k’s S**k MAN! >:@
    Getting tired and pissed off with these sort of things!

    Ninja Blade doesn’t even have a release date for UK too.

    f**ing hell man!

    That’s good news, can’t wait to hear more from Sakuraba.

    Believe it or not, I just bought a 2nd 360 yesterday, since the US arcade bundle since is so cheap now and has the new jasper chip, w/ Sega Tennis & 2nd wireless controller too. They can’t screw me over w/ the region lock anymore. Now I can play the US ver of Operation Darkness & Infinite Undiscovery, even though the import OD has the optional Eng. script except a horrible one, and IU has an Asian Eng. version.

    eurobitches xD
    but it’s true, it’s true.

  • Vrakanox

    I can’t wait to play this game. I’m so pumped
