Star Ocean 5 PC Port & PS Vita Version is Being Considered!

Star Ocean 5 Fidel & Miki

In a French interview with FFWorld and FFDream, Shuichi Kobayashi from Square Enix actually gave an interesting piece of information, which is about Star Ocean 5 PC Port. Take a look for the translated interview below (thanks to NeoGaf):

FFD : Do you plan to make a PC port of Star Ocean 5 ?

S.K. : Because it’s a fast paced action title, I’m wondering what would be the best way to play it on PC… According to you, what would be the best way to play it ?

FFW : With a controller ?

S.K. : But in Europe, are people used to play on PC with a controller ?

Together : Yes.

S.K. : I see. Of course, if you have a controller, you can play it without any trouble, but I wonder how to do for those who don’t have one. That’s our main worry and that’s the reason why we delayed for later the release of a PC version, to think of a control scheme for players without a controller. ASKA engine, which is used by Tri-Ace to develop Star Ocean 5, allows for fairly easy PC ports, so if we find out a way to solve the control scheme issue, the port would be pretty easy for us, although I can’t promise that it would be fast.

Notice the underlined part in that interview. Also, it seems like in another piece of the same interview, a PS Vita version is also given a possibility. Below is the part of the interview that talked about PS Vita possibility.

FFW: You reissued Star Ocean: The Second Story on PS4 and Vita in Japan last year, and I would like to know if you plan to do the same in the West.

S.K.: Actually, I’m not the producer of Star Ocean: the Second Story, so this decision is not for me. But I think it would be a great idea to publish it in the world. I can always talk to the producer, if you want. But you do not need version Vita, here, right?

FFW: Actually, players often complain that Square Enix does not publish its games on PS Vita in Europe.

S.K.: Oh yeah? I did not. Ideally, of course it should be published on both platforms. I will make sure to talk as soon as possible.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is to be released for PlayStation 4 on June 28, 2016 in US and July 1, 2016 in Europe. The collector’s edition has been revealed and you can check it here.
