Why? That's just obvious. Kanji literally means Chinese characters.
To be honest Star ocean, although it has the best graphics of any SNES/SFC game, is rather average as a game.
I remembered "testing" SO on an emulator and was close to completion but got side tracked by item crafting, which I actually meant... making food... a lot of them. See, it may not be a great game, but it's like those modern game with some collection aspect (whether collecting stuff IS the objective of the game like those mobile card collecting games, or as a side feature of the game just to lengthen it, doesn't really matter) which made players addicted in doing the same thing repeatedly again and again. I still haven't completed the game to this day...
Too bad none of the DQ games for the system were released in the west, otherwise I'd like to see them more than any of the Square games.
They were released on the Nintendo DS rather recently - and the remakes are likely to not be so much of a grindfest as their original counterparts.
So are the FF games, and even more terrible the FF games are remade to death on every single device under the sun. They probably will port the games to run on a refrigerator if they have the chance. The music in DQ also pwn FF in any way possible (though the DQ tunes are all best done with full real orchestration and the synthesized versions couldn't do them justice). I do like some tunes in FF5 though. The musics in the FF series just aren't my thing.
