Set 20 years after the events of the original, Star Ocean 2 also receives the full remake treatment aboard the PSP. The title takes the next step with fully animated movies, new character designs, extra playable characters, fully voiced dialogue, and more.

Following the exploits of humankind’s journey across the stars, the Star Ocean saga continues with the completely remastered Star Ocean: Second Evolution. Featuring a revised game engine, an improved battle system and fully-voiced, all-new animated scenes displayed in 16:9 widescreen. With a newly added layer of character interaction, players can enjoy their journey into the rich Star Ocean universe like never before.

John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “Star Ocean has already proved to be a popular series in Japan, we now hope that players around the world can discover why by experiencing the origin of the series through the PSP releases of Star Ocean: First Departure™ and the newly announced Star Ocean: Second Evolution.”
