Originally released in the west on the PSP (PlayStationPortable) system, STAR OCEAN First Departure R tells the story of a young swordsman, Roddick, and his companions who at first set off on a journey to find the cure to a deadly disease, which then spirals into an adventure that spans across the sea of stars.
This HD remaster version includes the following features and boosts to enhance the experience.
