Square Enix Has No Plans To Bring Star Ocean: Second Evolution For PS4 And Vita To The West

Recommended Videos

Siliconera recently spoke with Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness producer Shuichi Kobayashi, and asked if Square Enix is looking into releasing Star Ocean: Second Evolution to the West.

 

Star Ocean: Second Evolution, the enhanced port of Star Ocean: The Second Story, originally released for PSP in 2008 in Japan and the following year in the West. The game was more recently ported with additional features to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan on October 2015 and it even got a PS3 port in December, but we’ve yet to hear anything about it for the West.

 

During our interview with Star Ocean Integrity and Faithlessness producer Shuichi Kobayashi, we asked if Square Enix is looking into releasing the PS4 and PS Vita versions of the game for the West.

 

“Yamagishi-san he was the producer that created the PSP remake and released the PS4 and Vita version in Japan. After he released the remake he hasn’t really done anything for the West. At this moment, there are no plans to release that title in the West,” Kobayashi told Siliconera.

 

He continued, “However, these are my personal thoughts and nothing has been decided yet, but since I am kind of rebooting the [Star Ocean] series I know that I can’t leave it alone. I would love to release it somehow. Maybe create a back catalog or have some way to purchase it because I know a lot of people and maybe even people who play this new title would want to play the older [Star Ocean] titles too.”

 

“I know we should probably do this. I don’t know if it will be me or Yamagishi-san again, but there should be a way to do this. There are no plans this moment, but I am thinking about it.“

 

We’ll have more from Kobayashi-san soon.
