What’s this? A new Star Ocean game coming out for PS3 and PS4, oh you better believe it!
Due to an early leak from Famitsu, the fifth instalment of the series will be named “Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness”. Star Ocean 5 will be set on the planet of Feycreed set 6000 light years away from Earth. There have so far been three confirmed.
- Fedel Camus, the protagonist, who has skills in fencing,
- Miki Sorvesta, childhood friend of Fedel who she sees as an older brother
- Lilia who seems to have amnesia.
The game like previous instalments will feature seamless real time battles with characters performing different types of attacks depending on their range from the enemies. The title is being developed again by Tri-Force and will be published by Square Enix.
The prologue has also been translated into english as follows.
“Do the depths of space forbid peace for mankind—
Centuries after leaving Earth, after a multitude of trials, with the creation and spread of the ‘Galactic Federation’, humanity was on the verge of unified order and peace.
But the embers of conflict have begun to burn again.
Over 6,000 light years from Earth, on the unsettled planet, ‘Faicreed.’
Just as so many times before, the waves of history begin from a remote planet.”
I have been a fan of this series from the start and am very excited to hear about this news but what are your thoughts on this upcoming exclusive for the Playstation? This is a title that has been running since 1996 and has evolved over time with some great stories and beautiful graphics
