The first game in the ''Franchise/StarOcean'' series, ''Star Ocean'' was originally released for the Super Famicom; that version was [[NoExportForYou never ported to the West]], though {{Fan Translation}}s exist. SquareEnix [[VideoGameRemake remade]] this game for the [=PSP=]; this remake, subtitled ''First Departure'', was released in the US and UK in October 2008. It tells the tale of a young boy named Ratix Farrence from the planet Roak (most of whose inhabitants have tails and [[UnusualEars pointed ears]], though there are other races) whose world is under threat from a horrible disease that makes those who catch it [[TakenForGranite turn to stone.]] Seems like standard fantasy fare, until Captain Ronyx J. Kenny and his Number One Ilia Silvestri from the Terran Alliance beam down to the planet to investigate. The stone disease is much more than what it seems, not just for Roak but other planets as well....

* HealerSignsOnEarly: Averted. The first character with healing spells isn't available until the last dungeon on the second continent; both he and (at that point in the game) the dungeon are optional. Millie, the non-optional healer, doesn't join until you get to the last continent on Roak.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler: Fargett]] was supposed to be a fully explorable second world with a much more involved plot, but there wasn't enough space on the cartridge.

* BlackMagicianGirl: Mavelle is an odd case in that while her attacks work like spells, they're treated like the fighters' special skills. Erys plays it a bit more straight.

* AbandonedMine: An optional area hidden in Mt. Metox is an abandoned mine filled with super-tough enemies and high value loot. * ActionGirl: Ilia, Phia

* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: The abandoned mine in Mt. Metorx, but only for a short while. The first time you can access it any enemy will kill you in one hit. When you are able to handle the enemies there, though, it's only a short time until you move on to more lucrative ones in terms of experience.
