Enix published the second installment in the Star Ocean action role-playing game series for the PlayStation console in 1998.

Sony Computer Entertainment introduced developer tri-Ace's science fiction title to English-language territories the following year. A two-disc compact disc release of Motoi Sakuraba's soundtrack saw publication late in 1998.

In 2008, Tose Co., Ltd. developed a PlayStation Portable remake, entitled Star Ocean: Second Evolution. Square Enix published the soundtrack album that year on two compact discs, bundled with a DVD including the opening cinematic and a promotional video.

Earlier today, Square Enix made the 87-track Star Ocean: The Second Story digital edition available for streaming on YouTube Music, Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited, alongside the 87-track score from the PSP title Second Evolution.

From the product page:
Our tale begins on the primitive planet of Roak where Roddick lives in the peaceful and uneventful town of Kratus. As a member of the village’s local “Defence Force” tasked with the protection of Kratus, Roddick learns of a mysterious disease that has broken out in the neighboring town. Those infected turn to stone, but continue to live on in a petrified state.

Roddick, along with his two friends Millie and Dorne, make their way to the neighboring town. Informed of a cure for the sickness, they head to Mt. Metorx where a healing herb is rumored to grow. When they reach the summit, the party encounter Ronyx and Ilia, who appear before them in a pillar of light.
