Star Ocean: Integrity And Faithlessness Coming To PS3, PS4
Whoa...it was a new Star Ocean!
Square Enix was teasing a mystery game over the past week, and it has been formally announced: It's Star Ocean 5 or rather, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
You can grab your first look at Kotaku, where you'll find baseline setting and gameplay information, along with a few scanned images from Japanese publication Famitsu. In development at the franchise's original developer, Tri-Ace, the new effort it takes place between Star Ocean 2 and Star Ocean 3. The setting is a planet 6,000 light years from Earth; a strange place called "Faicreed." As for combat, it will boast "seamless real-time battle," which is disappointing but no real surprise. Currently confirmed platforms are PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4; no mention made of Xbox.
There has always been some semblance of real-time action in this franchise, but I was hoping for at least a hybrid presentation like before. At any rate, it'll be interesting to see how RPG veteran Tri-Ace approaches this new entry. Stay tuned for more details.
