On the official site, Square Enix has announced that the Japanese release of Star Ocean 5 will be postponed from February 25, 2015 to March 31, 2015. The reason for this is rather simple: further polishing. The game is set to arrive in 2016 exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in Europe and North America – it will also be available on PlayStation 3 in Japan. The game is being in development by tri-Ace and Square Enix.
Set between the events of Star Ocean: The Second Story and Star OCean: Till the End of Time, Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness takes place centuries after humans have left Earth for the stars. On a planet in the distant Faykreed star system, the swordsman Fidel Camuze and his childhood friend Miki Sauvester set out to protect their village from being swallowed in the tides of civil unrest. The game is also described as “an epic adventure that introduces seamless transitions between gameplay and dynamic cutscenes, adding a new layer of depth and immersion to storytelling in the series.”
