Titled Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, the game is the fifth instalment in the main series and is being developed by Tri-Ace, the studio that originally launched Star Ocean in 1996 on the Super Nintendo. The artist known as Akiman is the game's main character designer, and this latest title takes place between Star Ocean 2 and Star Ocean 3. Here is the prologue translated into English:

Do the depths of space forbid peace for mankind —

Centuries after leaving Earth, after a multitude of trials, with the creation and spread of the 'Galactic Federation', humanity was on the verge of unified order and peace.

But the embers of conflict have begun to burn again.

Over 6,000 light years from Earth, on the unsettled planet, 'Faicreed.'

Just as so many times before, the waves of history begin from a remote planet.

The game features "seamless realtime battles" with the attack depending on the distance to the target. Thus, there are also different attacks and skills for both close distances and far ones.

    Well it can't possibly be worse than 4.

      Apparently the gameplay will be similar to SO3 which I absolutely love the battle system and the story.

    hmm judging by the shots it could take place in the world of star ocean 3.. at least i hope it does, star ocean 4 was just.. *ughh*

    also, Fidel Camus is a much better name than Edge Maverick.

    Best news I've heard in a long time. Hope the combat and A.I is as good as in IV.

    Star Ocean: Harem judging by the screenshots.

      There better be some more guys or I'm gonna be annoyed! (I'm a guy and I'm straight)

      Calling it! The Badass guy should be there somewhere. Oh and prince/royalty guy as one of them or the villain.
