Late last week Square Enix announced they were doing something the industry very rarely sees, release a title early. The Square Enix published, triAce developed Star Ocean: The Last Hope was originally set to hit shelves during the first week of March but now will arrive in North America on February 24th. Currently, Star Ocean is set to release in Japan on February 19th and on April 24 in Europe.
We're so accustomed to waiting for Japanese role-playing game releases that we won't know what to do when Star Ocean lands in stores earlier than expected. Our whole world has been turned upside down!
