    Everytime this damn thread is made I have to say this again. Square is NOT doing it. They said it would take at LEAST four YEARS to remake the entire game with just that graphical quality... thats NOT counting sound and the reprogramming of the battle system. I mean hell just look how long its taking them to do XIII!!!


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    yeah, they're working on a lot. FF4 remake, FF XIII, FF Versus XIII, Final Fantasy Agito XIII, Last Remnant, the Kingdom Hearts game, FF Dissidia, the remakes of Star Ocean 1 and 2, Star Ocean 4, Dragon Quest 9, Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Fūketsu no Grimoire, and Chrono Break seems to be getting more life. so they have a lot of crap on there hands, so god knows if a ff7 is possible at this point in time, unless it's remake for the psp or something, otherwise for the ps3 it would take forever. the scene that shows cloud jumping off the train with his buster sword took a long time, so remaking whole game would take many years of work.

    STAR OCEAN 1: First Departure
    Platform: PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system
    Genre: RPG
    Release Date: TBA
    Initially released toward the end of the Super Famicom’s life cycle, and never before localized for North America, the origin of the STAR OCEAN series receives a total makeover for the PSP system. Additional scenarios and characters, integrated 2D and 3D graphics in the style of the PS one™ game console hit STAR OCEAN 2, fully animated movies, and other bonus features transform the game into a completely new experience.

    STAR OCEAN 2: Second Evolution
    Platform: PSP system
    Genre: RPG
    Release Date: TBA
    Set 20 years after the events of its predecessor, STAR OCEAN 2 also receives the full remake treatment aboard the PSP system. The title takes the next step with fully animated movies, all-new character designs, extra playable characters, fully voiced dialogue, and more.

    STAR OCEAN 4 (tentative title)
    Platform: TBA
    Genre: RPG
    Release Date: TBA
    The latest addition to the series is planned for next-generation hardware, and is currently being developed in cooperation with tri-Ace. This title is primed to push next-gen technology to its limits while delivering an experience worthy of the STAR OCEAN name.

    Star Ocean, released in 1996 for the Super Famicom and never released outside of Japan, is the first game in the series. It established the series' staples, including the futuristic setting, real-time battle system, item creation, and private actions. It takes place in 346 SD, and follows the adventures of Ratix Farrence as he searches for a cure for a sickness on his planet with the help of two Earthlings.

    Star Ocean: The Second Story
    , released for the PlayStation in Japan in 1998 and North America in 1999. It retains the features of its predecessor while introducing prerendered backgrounds, full motion videos, and 3D battle fields. Taking place in 366 SD, it features a new cast of characters, including Claude Kenni, the son of Ronixis from the original Star Ocean, and Rena Lanford, who both investigate the Sorcery Globe, which has landed on Planet Expel and has been causing disasters ever since.

    Star Ocean: Blue Sphere
    is a direct sequel to The Second Story, released for the Game Boy Color in 2001 in Japan. A North American version was planned but canceled. Blue Sphere adapts the Star Ocean series to handhelds altering several aspects in the process, including interactive item creation, auto private actions, 2D side scrolling battles, Field Actions, and the removal of random battles. It takes place in 368 SD, two years after The Second Story, and features the return of all twelve main characters as they attempt to solve the mystery of the Planet Edifice and its destructive nature that eradicates the planet's civilizations every 200 years.

    Star Ocean: Till the End of Time
    was released for the PlayStation 2 in Japan in 2003. A director's cut of the game with bonus dungeons, new playable characters, and tweaked gameplay was released in 2004, and that version was brought to North America and Europe the same year. Till the End of Time is the first fully 3D game in the series and features fully voiced dialogue. It retains most aspects of the previous games with new features, such as the fury and bonus battle gauge, as well as the ability to patent items created during item creation and recruiting inventors to create items for the player. The game takes place nearly 400 years after the last Blue Sphere, in 772 SD. Fayt Leingod is the main character, and after finding himself separated from his family during an alien attack on a resort planet, is pursued by the same Vendeeni forces across space for reasons beyond his imagination.
    Having never played any of the Star Ocean games, though I plan on it, this makes me curious. Does this mean that the PS2 Star Ocean is Star Ocean 3, and that the one for the Game Boy doesn't really count? And, if so, why? Asking someone that might have played it, did it suck that bad that they don't count it as one of the games(to make an anime comparison, like how most people don't count "Tenchi in Tokyo" as a Tenchi show, because it just sucked so horribly)? Or is it a spin off, in which case, is it included in the remake?

    The gameboy one isn't really a spinoff since it picks up from Star Ocean 2--it's a sequel. (A bit like Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, except you don't need to play Blue Sphere to understand 3. The gap in years takes care of that.)

    I guess Star Ocean 3 is 3rd because it's been released on a major console like the remainder of the series--snes, ps1, ps2--so it's more popular and well-known on both sides of the pacific ocean. It'd be weird to call it 4 since then everyone would wonder where the 3rd one went, when no one in America is supposed to have played Blue Sphere.

    In that skewed sense, the ps2 release is 3.

    As English text takes up more cartridge space than Japanese text, the translation would expand the already-expensive 32 mb cartridge to an even higher price that would make the game a tough sell.

    And it wasn't bad for a handheld game.
