"Star Ocean: The Last Hope" Remaster Release Scheduled for the West
A 4K and Full HD Remaster version was recently announced for Star Ocean: The Last Hope, and Square Enix followed up with plans for a western release. In fact, the North American and European launch is lined up for the same day as the Japanese release, November 28.
The Star Ocean: The Last Hope remaster will be available as a $20.99 download on PS4 and PC. Each version has their own digital bonuses—PS4 users get an exclusive theme and avatars, while Steam users get a mini-soundtrack—and PS Plus and Steam users who purchase it before December 12 will get 10 percent off.

Square Enix describes it:
Developed in partnership with tri-Ace, Star Ocean: The Last Hope takes place at the beginning of the STAR OCEAN series timeline and is a full HD remaster with added 4K support and PC keyboard, mouse and controller support. The game takes players on an epic journey across the universe in an immersive, intergalactic story of survival where humanity must turn to the stars in search of a new home. Featuring strategic real-time combat, the remastered title also keeps the original deep Item Creation System and Private Action system that explores character relationships and subplots for a richer and more rewarding story, and exhilarating Blindside battle system, which fuses evasion and offense.
