….or was it the other way around? Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has been announced for both Ps3 and Ps4 today via the Square-Enix teaser site which launched last week. The site has been updated daily since Monday; first with the word “Star” and numbers “20150 1.” On Tuesday the word “Start” and today’s date “20150415.” The announcement was then, of course, leaked by Famitsu. A similar scenario had occurred only a week prior with the announcement of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided when Russian website Kanobu and gaming magazine Game Informer both revealed their articles on the new game.

Star Ocean 5 has now been officially announced and Square Enix have updated the teaser site with a retrospective trailer for the game looking back on previous entries in the series. The Kotaku article goes in to further detail: the game will be set on the planet Feycreed, 6000 light-years away from Earth and is protected by the UP3 (Underdeveloped Planet Preservation Pact)

The game takes place in the year 537 on the space calendar, between Star Ocean 2 and 3. Battles will no longer have transitions and will take place in real time on the field. Kotaku usually releases their magazine weekly and these leaks have both happened on a tuesday which begs the question: would it not have been better for Square-Enix to have hurried this announcement up just a little bit to get ahead of the inevitable leak? Some part of me thinks the leak renders the whole teaser pointless. I am however getting a new entry in my all time favourite game series so either way, I’m hyped.

    SO4 was apparently made by a porn director which explains a lot.

      I never knew that.
      So that’s why Star Ocean 4 had a boring emo-like blonde white boy protagonist?
      I hate Cloud Strife as well, I don’t like the characters from Final Fantasy 15 either, all emos.

    Some basic two handed double edged sword combos.
