Star Ocean: The Last Hope trailer looks like Japanese Mass Effect

Saturday, 24th January 2009 21:51 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Microsoft recently posted what appears to be the first English Star Ocean: The Last Hope trailer, and we’re pretty stoked.

Prepare your feeble, un-blown mind for — among other things — earth-engulfing nukes, madcap battles, and some guy who kind of looks kind of like Darth Vader. Or, if Mass Effect isn’t your thing, just fast-forward to 1:05, where the game becomes Quake III.

So yeah, now you can probably understand why we’re counting down the days until Star Ocean: The Last Hope hits shelves. April – or February if you live in the US – can’t come soon enough.

Direct feed trailer through the link or see it after the break.

Thanks, jnms.

    Why are we stoked exactly? On account of all the BIG NOISES and PRETTY LIGHTS?
