Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness has been announced by Square Enix at their E3 2015 media briefing. This title seems to be a prequel of sorts, placed between two of the previous games, Star Ocean: The Second Story and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time.

I have yet to play a Star Ocean title, since I missed both the PS1 and PS2, but I do own Star Ocean: The Last Hope International for PS3. This title looks like its battle system is very similar to that of the Tales Series, with the exception of entering and exiting battles is nearly seamless in this game (much like Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Nintendo Wii U).

Targeted to be released as a PS4 exclusive title in 2016, I can’t wait to see more and play it for myself!


From the official press release:

Square Enix’s Sci-Fi RPG Title Slated as PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System Exclusive

LOS ANGELES (June 16, 2015) – SQUARE ENIX® today revealed that STAR OCEAN®: Integrity and Faithlessness™, the latest chapter of the highly celebrated sci-fi role-playing game (RPG) series will be coming to the Americas. Developed by tri-Ace, the celebrated studio behind the STAR OCEAN series, and with character design by akiman (Akira Yasuda), the game is set to arrive in 2016 exclusively for the PlayStation®4 system.

STAR OCEAN: Integrity and Faithlessness is an epic adventure that introduces seamless transitions between gameplay and dynamic cut scenes, adding a new layer of depth and immersion to storytelling in the series. The popular real-time action battle system from previous titles has been overhauled with improved game mechanics and action sequences for a truly uninterrupted in-game narrative.

Set between the events of STAR OCEAN: The Second Story and STAR OCEAN: Till the End of Time, STAR OCEAN: Integrity and Faithlessness takes place centuries after humans have left Earth for the stars. On a planet in the distant Faykreed star system, the swordsman Fidel Camuze and his childhood friend Miki Sauvester set out to protect their village from being swallowed in the tides of civil unrest.
