Speaking during its latest broadcast event for Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Square Enix confirmed the differences between the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions of the hotly anticipated JRPG.
For starters, the last-generation version of the game will only be released in Japan, with the PS4 edition the only one available in the U.S. and Europe. Pleasingly, the game is expected to run at 60fps on PS4, while the PS3 version will clock in at 30fps.
While the game content will be identical across both formats, Cross-Save won’t be supported at all. However, PS4 owners will be able to take advantage of Remote Play via the PlayStation Vita.
In terms of visual performance, the current-generation of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithfulness will run at 1080p, a significant step up from the PS3 version, which runs at 720p. Finally, the PS3 version will boast “finer physics processing, characters, backgrounds, effects, and such, and objects and monsters at a distance are displayed on-screen.”
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is scheduled for release in Japan on March 31 and will arrive in the U.S. and Europe later in the year.
