The majority of games being shown off at E3 are slated for the fall or later, but you can have Star Ocean 5 in less than two weeks. I’m grateful there’s at least one non-Final Fantasy property Square isn’t willing to banish to phones just yet. Star Ocean 5 contains everything fans come back for: non-realistic stylized characters, the rarely-used sci-fi setting, real-time battles, and of course, customization and item-crafting out the wazoo. If you’re smart enough in some of these games you can make yourself invincible.
This is the launch trailer, released for E3. It remains to be seen if any SO can come close to the series height of Star Ocean 2 on the Playstation 1.
There’s more: Square has also published three additional videos. One introducing you to the voice cast….
One explaining the backstory of the character Relia, integral to the plot…
And one based around your method of transportation between planets, the starship Charles De Goale.
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will be out June 28 for Playstation 4.
