The latest entry to the famous, yet infamous, Star Ocean series is now available in NA regions as of June 28th. The game takes place before the critically acclaimed Star Ocean: Till the End of Time and after Star Ocean: The Second Story.
Centuries after humans left the Milky Way for the Faykreed system, swordsman Fidel Camuze and his loyal friend Miki Sauvester set off to protect their village from the oncoming tide of civil unrest and soon find themselves protecting the Kingdom of Resulia with the ragtag bunch of misfits.
The new Star Ocean title aims for seamless transitions between combat and roaming. All available allies compete in combat in tangent unlike most JRPGs.
The collector's edition is available only through the Square Enix website and will include an art book, steel case, sampler soundtrack by Motoi Sakuraba, art cards and a Pangalactic ID card. One will also receive exclusive DLC allowing the player to change the music in combat and assist the player when starting their journey.
