Square Enix has released a new gameplay trailer for Tri-Ace’s Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
The latest trailer, entitled ‘Battle Trailer’, focuses on the psycho-sexual relationship of the main protagonist with a kiwi fruit. Just kidding, it’s all about the latest edition in the long running series’ new seamless battle system, which, like Final Fantasy XV and pretty much every other JRPG of late, is ditching traditional turn based combat for a more active battle system in which all seven characters can fight against enemies in the overworld without the gameplay shifting to a separate battle screen as it did in previous entries.
It looks quite chaotic, but in a good way. Having the entire main cast fighting as a unit with each member using their own particular talents in tandem to take apart the numerous beasts you’ll battle is something I have wanted to see for a long time.
Check it out for yourselves below.
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will be out on July 1 for PlayStation 4.
Any Star Ocean fans out there? Anyone wish console JRPGs would go back to having proper turn based combat?
