Square Enix has been teasing something for the past week, and it seems that all signs point to it being a new chapter in the Star Ocean saga, with a possible reveal coming tomorrow.
According to a leak in this months issue of Famitsu, Star Ocean 5 is currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
The game, titled Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness, will be developed by Tri-Ace and published by Square Enix. The game is set on a planet called Fakelead located 6,000 miles away from Earth. According to the leak, the battle system will take place in real-time and be seamless.
Obviously, we are still waiting for an official release from Square Enix, but per the leak, the following characters have been revealed:
- Fedel Camus (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa) – The protagonist. He specializes at fencing, and protects the order of his village.
- Miki Sorvesta (voiced by Nao Toyama) – The heroine. She is the protagonist’s childhood friend, and loves him like an older brother.
- Lilia (voice actor unknown) – A girl who lost both her memories and emotions.
Once the official word comes in, we should have more news to share, especially regarding a North American release. For now, though, it seems like you might be able to start getting excited about getting some more Star Ocean.
