Star Ocean 5 Will Probably Receive A PC Version

Is there a chance for a PC port of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness? Well, it really seems that Square Enix is considering a port of their upcoming title, at least that’s what producer Shuichi Kobayashi has stated during an interview with FFDrea.

You can read the original outtake below:

FFDream: Are there any plans to port Star Ocean 5 to PC?

Kobayashi: “Since the game is full of action, I wonder the ideal commands for PC might be… What’s the best way to play it, in your opinion?”

FFWorld: “With a game pad?”

Kobayashi: “Are people used to playing on PC with a game pad in Europe?”

FFWorld and FFDream: “Yes.”

Kobayashi: “I see. So if you have a game pad, you can play it without problems, but I wonder how those who don’t have one would play. That’s our main concern and why we’ve pushed to release a PC version later on, so that we could reflect on the controls for players without a game pad. The ASKA engine, which tri-Ace used to develop Star Ocean 5, allows us to easily bring the game to PC, so if we can find a solution to our problem with the controls on PC, porting it should be easy enough for us, although I can’t promise that it would be fast.”
