Earlier this month Square Enix Japan announced it would be releasing a 4k + Full HD version of Star Ocean: The Last Hope, the fourth game in the long-running sci-fi JRPG series that originally released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2009. Now, the re-release has been confirmed for the west.

Check out the official overview below, which essentially confirms the game won’t have much in the way of extra features outside of the HD upgrade.

Developed in partnership with tri-Ace, Star Ocean: The Last Hope takes place at the beginning of the STAR OCEAN series timeline and is a full HD remaster with added 4K support and PC keyboard, mouse and controller support. The game takes players on an epic journey across the universe in an immersive, intergalactic story of survival where humanity must turn to the stars in search of a new home. Featuring strategic real-time combat, the remastered title also keeps the original deep Item Creation System and Private Action system that explores character relationships and subplots for a richer and more rewarding story, and exhilarating Blindside battle system, which fuses evasion and offense.

You’ll be able to buy Star Ocean: The Last Hope digitally on November 28. If you pre-order on PS4 you also get a special theme and 12 PSN avatars.
