Back in 1998, one of the best RPGs of the year was sadly overshadowed by the arrival of newer and more 3D entries in the series. Almost two decades later, Star Ocean: The Second Story R is back with a refreshed lease on cosmic life. It includes a number of big upgrades to its core systems along with a gorgeous visual overhaul. If you’re looking forward to the remake of this classic RPG, Star Ocean: The Second Story R preorders are live ahead of its November 2 release, and you can save big on your preorder for PC.

Currently, Green Man Gaming is offering the game on PC (Steam key) for just $40 if you have a free GMG XP account. Retail price is $50, so this is a very good preorder deal. Without a GMG XP account, you can get the game for $42 with promo code JUN16.

If you want to play on Switch or PlayStation, physical edition preorders are live at Amazon. Big Star Ocean fans have already cleared out the Collector’s Edition stock at the Square Enix Store. The $200 version of the game comes with a four-disc soundtrack, artbook, and a 24-piece box set of mini acrylic stands, featuring pixel art of main characters from the game including the thirteen party members and the Ten Wise Men.
