Deservedly dubbed as the series-defining title, the RPG re-release includes new features unique to the system, such as trophy support, share functionality, and remote play. The version will also take advantage of the PlayStation 4’s PS2 emulator to up-render the game in full HD with reduction in jaggies and improved lighting.
The story begins in the year SD 772 as protagonist Fayt brings his family and childhood friend Sophia to the Federation-managed resort planet Hyda for a long-deserved vacation. Their dreamy holiday turns into a nightmare when Hyda is attacked by an unknown space military. In the heat of the attack, Fayt is separated from Sophia and his family and begins an emotional quest into the unknown to find his loved ones.
In commemoration of the game’s release, Square Enix has put out a launch trailer as well as a special video message from producer Shuichi Kobayashi.
