Square Enix formalises Euro 360 JRPG details

Tuesday, 10 June 2008 11:44 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Press release after the link. All this information was announced this morning in Tokyo, but all this stuff’s directly related to Europe. One interesting point there is that Star Ocean’s not listed as an Xbox 360 exclusive – whereas Infinite Undicovery is – and no other platforms are mentioned.

Take a look.

Update: The issue of Star Ocean’s platforms has been clarified on IGN. From the site:

Square Enix producer Yoshinori Yamagishi cleared things up during a roundtable interview session that followed the press conference. Asked if the game is 360-only, he 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.”

Thanks, Psychotext!
