Square Enix has announced in Tokyo at Microsoft’s RPG Premier event that the next Star Ocean, titled Star Ocean: The Last Hope, will arrive exclusively on Xbox 360. A trailer accompanied the announcement, detailing mankind’s first venture into space following the devastating results of a fictional World War III.
It’s out in 2009. Check out the clip below.
Update: IGN contacted Square Enix PR today to ask whether or not a PlayStation 3 version of the game was in order. They responded.
Square Enix producer Yoshinori Yamagishi said, “We cannot announce anything on that. We can say that it will be released first [on the Xbox 360]. Whether we’ll release it on the PS3 is undecided. We may release it, we may not.”
