Famitsu has revealed Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness via their latest magazine.
The game is being developed by tri-Ace and published by Square Enix, with the Playstation 3 acting as the base for the game and a port to Playstation 4 in the works during development. The magazine also featured interviews with producer Kobayashi, director Ogawa and programmer Gotanda. Some excerpts below:
Gotanda: “There are multiple meanings behind the subtitle for this game. It’ll make sense by the end once you play the game, I think.”
Kobayashi: “Star Ocean 5 is about bringing a sense of reassurance back to longtime fans, which is why the game’s logo is reminiscent of Star Ocean 3‘s.”
Ogawa: “Basic battles are the same as previous entries, where the player controlled character takes on the enemy in one-on-one battles. On the other hand, boss battles see the whole party squaring off against bosses, which lends those fights a different feel that players can enjoy.”
The Future of the Series
Kobayashi: “I’d like to be able to keep putting these games out. By the end, when it’s all finished, we hope we have a game that draws in series fans and new players alike.”
Playstation 3 & Playstation 4 versions have been confirmed, but a release date is still unannounced as the game isonly stated to be 30% complete. Some magazine scans are avilable below, via Kotaku.
