Good news, RPG fans. It turns out that you don't have to shell out extra just to import Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. The game's also getting the same February release window in North American and PAL territories.
Japan will still get it first on February 4, 2010, so if you really must play it as soon as possible then importing's the way to go. For those who can bear the short wait, it'll be in retail February 9, 2010, in North American and February 12, 2010, in PAL territories.
Here's a quick update on the languages option, too. Aside from the English and Japanese voiceovers, The Last Hope International will also have localized subtitles in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Nice. Gotta love all that Blu-ray space.
