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 releasing multi-disc RPGs.
Infinite Undiscovery and the Last Remnant came out on two discs. When Star Ocean: The Last Hope gets released in North America this March 3 it will be on three discs. Hopefully, Square Enix will pony up for better packaging than the US version of Lost Odyssey which crammed three discs on top of each other.
You know what else Star Ocean 4 has? Cat girls. Meet Meracle Chamlotte.
