The Square Enix Support website has seemingly leaked a remake of Star Ocean: The Second Story, with a banner for the unannounced project having been spotted on the site.
There’s nothing official yet, but this wouldn’t be the first time that Square Enix has remade a Star Ocean game. Back in 2019, the studio overhauled the first game in the shape of Star Ocean: First Departure R for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
The original version of Star Ocean: The Second Story was released for the PSOne in May 1999 in the US and April 2000, making it the first entry in the series to be released outside of Japan. The game is set in a science fiction universe and focuses on Claude Kenni, a young man and space-faring cadet who is stranded on an undeveloped, medieval-level planet.
Developer TOSE worked on a remaster for the PSP in 2008 known as Star Ocean: Second Evolution, which added animated cutscenes produced by Production I.G, a revamped soundtrack, and new story elements.
