That’s right, another JRPG showed off its box art recently. This one happens to be the re-release of Star Ocean: The Last Hope, dubbed the “International” edition. PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to enjoy the formerly Xbox 360 exclusive title in short order – February 9, 2010. Along with the PS3 version comes a drastic change in box art. To appeal to the Xbox kiddies, Square-Enix decided to forgo the use of anime-style box art and, as fate will have it, the anime-style character portraits in-game, for that version earlier this year.
It turns out, for the PS3 release, both those features – yes, they are features because they are awesome – return. The newly revealed box art shows the two main characters – Edge and Reimi – in all their stylized glory. As an added bonus, the anime portraits are back in the International version, as well as the Japanese language track with English sub-titles. Score one for the otakus, right?
