For the first time, Square Enix is offering an international version of their titles to North America. International versions of Square Enix's major releases are typically released in Japan, with English voice acting and gameplay modifications.
Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope International is no exception. Not only will there be Japanese and English, the PlayStation 3 version will include English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish. In addition to language options, the menu system will be redone and there will be new characters added.
Square Enix will release Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope International, for PlayStation 3, worldwide on February 9, 2010. The North American version will retail for $59.99. The international version is not yet rated by the ESRB, but the Xbox 360 version was rated Teen.
