Square Enix has no plans for a Western PS4/PSV Star Ocean: Second Evolution port

Star Ocean: Second Evolution on PS4 and VITA won't be arriving in the west for the foreseeable future. But there's hope.

Sorry, Star Ocean franchise fans... Square Enix, despite having ported the game previously for the original PSP, has no plans to send the new PS4 and PS VITA port over to western audiences.

In an interview with Siliconera, Square Enix producer ShÅ«ichi Kobayashi mentioned that another developer, Yoshinori Yamagichi "... was the producer that created the PSP remake and released the PS4 and Vita version in Japan. After he released the remake he hasn't really done anything for the West. At this moment, there are no plans to release that title in the West."

There is hope, though. He went on to mention how he's aware of an international love for the franchise, and is hopeful that newcomers to the series will want to check out older titles. Though there aren't plans for porting Star Ocean: Second Evolution as of now, he is considering it. Perhaps if the latest Star Ocean game is successful, we'll get a localization for updated versions of previous games.

Star Ocean fans, are you bummed about the news? Tell us in the comments below.
