[TGS2015] Square Enix – Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness

As seen in the featured games of Square Enix, mentioned that most of those games held a stage event for two days in a row. Fortunately Kojacon report could attend their very first stage event on first public day, Saturday Sept 19th 2015 which is “Star Ocean 5 Integrity and Faithlessness” Special Stage. The Producer, Shuuichi Kobayashi (today also as MC) came on stage together with 5 shujinkou seiyuu to publish this latest game. So, please be waiting until the release date!

Star Ocean is a franchise of action role-playing video games developed by the Japanese company tri-Ace and published and owned by Square Enix. The developers at tri-Ace created the Star Ocean series with a sci-fi setting in mind and have cited Star Trek as one of their main influences for the visuals of the games as well as being an underlying, but noticeable, influence to the series as a whole. Star Ocean games are known for their real-time battle engines, and, for being one of the first of its kind to come to the consoles. Battles take place on a separate screen, but all characters (rather than waiting in one spot and taking damage) are fully mobile in three dimensions, can dodge and chase foes, and must cast their spells and deploy attacks despite enemy harassment. In the earlier games, magicians had spells, whereas fighters had special physical attacks called “Killer Moves”; both are learned after passing certain level requirements (or through specific items and sidequests) and cost HP or MP to use.

First of all, Star Ocean trailer was playing on the wide screen.  What a beautiful graphic from Square Enix! Then all casts were having chara-talk by discussing their character in this game. As usual, new seiyuu appear as shujinkou (main character) and it’s quite difficult even for Fidel in Star Ocean 5. Fortunately another shujinkou will always be there to help LOL.  Then Miki, with her “iyashi” character as a very kawaii character to support Fidel, she also has the ability to protect all battle party as healer. Lilia said that she doesn’t like to talk, because this character still keep a lot of mystery which related to the game. That makes Lilia quite confuse when recording since she didn’t talk as much as the others. Next shujinkou is Victor, actually he just published to audience today, there’s only 3 character in Star Ocean web page previously. That’s why this stage is very special for fans! Keyword for Victor is very serious, he’s like very dedicated person to finish this game properly. Last but not leaset, Fiore, also the secret character for today was closing first talk session.
