Edge Maverick and the gang make their debut on current gen consoles later this month, according to a new announcement by Square Enix.

Priced at $20.99 on PlayStation Plus and Steam, the 4K remaster of the fourth game in the Star Ocean series is set to release simultaneously in the Americas, Europe and Japan on November 28. Those who preorder on PlayStation Plus will receive an exclusive PlayStation theme and 12 avatars, while those who preorder through Steam will get an exclusive downloadable mini soundtrack. Those who purchase the game before December 12 on either platform can get the game with a discount of 10 percent. The release also marks the first time the game has come to PC, with full keyboard support during gameplay.

Developed by tri-Ace, the game originally released February 29, 2009 on Xbox 360 and February 9, 2010 on PlayStation 3. Set before any other entry in the series, players guide Edge Maverick and his friends as they make their way across the galaxy in search of a new home for humanity. Fast paced combat, friendship building and corny dialogue ensue.

Players can dive back into the interstellar adventure when it releases on PlayStation 4 and PC next month.

Our Take
Star Ocean: The Last Hope was a solid title with a fun combat system. If tri-Ace has polished the systems to match the new graphical fidelity, it could be a fun return to the game's world.
