Square Enix is bringing a remaster of a remake of a remake of Star Ocean to PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

Star Ocean First Departure R, a remaster of Star Ocean First Departure, is due out on PS4 and Switch. Square Enix revealed the news in a brief Tweet recently.

Star Ocean First Departure is, of course, itself a PSP remake of the original Star Ocean originally released on the Super Nintendo (SNES). Unfortunately, the Tweet bears no mention of release date or any other crucial details, though it does promise more information in the future.

It’s also not yet clear how much of an upgrade Star Ocean First Departure R will be over the original. For now, here’s the strangely low-key announcement.
