While we’re finished sailing through the galaxy, Europe still doesn’t have Star Ocean: The Last Hope. PAL territories won’t see the game in stores until June 5, but they get two versions of it.

By Spencer . April 29, 2009 . 6:08am

Hong Kong is privy to strong marketing pushes from Microsoft. Earlier this year Hong Kong’s Xbox division gave away gold Xbox 360s. Their latest push? An Xbox 360 truck carrying LCD TVs hooked up with Xbox 360 games.

Rumor Control: Star Ocean: The Last Hope Not Coming To PS3 This Summer

By Spencer . April 23, 2009 . 7:07pm

A scan supposedly of Famitsu or Dengeki PlayStation is making rounds claiming Star Ocean: The Last Hope is coming the PlayStation 3 in summer 2009 (thanks for the tip Sir Fratley!!).   While really well made, it’s a fake.   The first key off is this week’s Famitsu Table of contents. Look closely at the […]

Who Is Star Ocean’s Welch Vineyard?

By Jenni . February 16, 2009 . 3:52pm

While all the Star Ocean games take place in the same universe and timeline, there’s another factor that ties them together. A single character known as Welch Vineyard. This unique individual, whose race and age is unknown, has now made in an appearance in every Star Ocean game, thanks to the recent PSP remakes.   […]

Different Region, Different Star Ocean: The Last Hope Interface

By Spencer . February 6, 2009 . 4:31pm

An embargo just lifted for a bunch of Star Ocean: The Last Hope media. I gave it glance and didn’t notice anything special. Pesmerga00 who has been following the game very closely did (thanks for the tip!!). It’s subtle, but it appears Square Enix is erasing anything anime in the English release of Star Ocean: […]

Let’s Ride The Star Ocean Escalator

By Spencer . February 5, 2009 . 11:35pm

Star Ocean may not be Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, but it is an established Square Enix franchise. Microsoft seems content about that and are giving Star Ocean: The Last Hope a big marketing push.   Causeway Bay is one of Hong Kong’s busiest and most crowded shopping districts. Before metro passengers hit the stores […]

Battles Of Star Ocean: The Last Hope

By Spencer . February 3, 2009 . 3:12am

Fights in Star Ocean: The Last Hope, much like Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, are frantic. One minute you’re throwing black holes and blasting enemies with bullets and in the next you’re slicing them with a laser scythe. Let’s hope the computer controlled party members can keep up with the action with intelligent […]

How Many Private Actions Does Star Ocean: The Last Hope Have?

By Spencer . January 29, 2009 . 9:20am

Over 100 and they will be easier to discover compared to past Star Ocean games. Private actions are unlocked by making Edge talk with party members on the Calnus, his ship, while everyone is doing their day to day tasks. Some of these scenes can only be found at night when the characters are rooming […]

By Spencer . January 14, 2009 . 9:01am

Square Enix sent over a bunch of pretty Star Ocean: The Last Hope screenshots to stare at to prepare for the revised February 24 release date. Some of these show Lymle and the cerberus she summoned. Some of them show other characters. Can you name all of them?   Let’s see there’s Bacchus, Myuria, Faize, […]

Star Ocean: The Last Hope Release Bumped Up

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

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 […]

Star Ocean: The Last Hope Spans 3 DVDs

By Spencer . December 5, 2008 . 8:10pm

Remember the days of comparing the “length” of RPGs by how many CDs they came on? Since DVDs became the standard media format we missed doing that in the PS2 / Xbox / Gamecube era. The Xbox 360 doesn’t have a fancy Blu-ray drive so Microsoft and Square Enix are going back to basics by […]

Meet The Characters And Hear Their Voices In Star Ocean: The Last Hope

By Spencer . November 26, 2008 . 11:49am

Since the Last Remnant is out Square Enix is starting to push Star Ocean: The Last Hope with gameplay videos. You may have seen this trailer before since it’s recycled footage from TGS, but this clip is slightly different. This video wasn’t recorded from a giant screen and it has English voice acting. No word […]
