Following the game’s removal from Steam last week, Square Enix has now officially announced a remastered version of The Last Remnant for PS4. According to the press release, the Unreal Engine 4 powered remaster is set to release worldwide on December 6th, 2018, and will carry a $19.99 price tag.
There’s no word on a PC or Xbox One release at this point, but considering they pulled the original game from Steam it will likely happen someday.
