Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithfulness takes place between the second and third games in the main Star Ocean franchise. It is being developed by Tri-Ace and will be released on PS4. It had been previously stated that Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithfulness would also be available on the PS3, however, that was not mentioned at the E3 conference.  


Based on the gameplay footage, Star Ocean will have feature a role-playing style typical of Japanese games, and will have real-time combat with a six-character-party.

Ambitiously, the gameplay is set to run at 60 frames-per-second with seamless transitions between cutscenes in order to make Star Ocean more cinematic.

The trailer features a number of different environments in which the characters battle, including beautifully rendered seascapes, forests, and deserts.

    I really miss the Star Ocean series, but I also REALLY don't want this to be terrible like 4 was. Tri-Ace, don't disappoint me again!

    I'm worried too, but I hope Tri-Ace delivers on this one.
