Fans of Star Ocean, tri-Ace and Square Enix’s science fiction RPG series, rejoice as a mobile entry of the series is available for IOS and Android today! Star Ocean: Anamnesis is the latest Star Ocean game to get an English localisation which features everything fans love about the series and more.
Star Ocean has been a cult classic franchise since its first entry in 1996, blending a sci-fi inspired universe with JRPG elements. The last major Star Ocean game was released in 2016, titled Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, was released for the PS3 and PS4. It coincided with the 20th anniversary of the franchise. Star Ocean: Anamnesis was actually released in the same year to coincide with the franchise milestone, but only in Japan.
After 2 years of being Japan exclusive, Star Ocean: Anamnesis is finally available for English-speaking players. As the captain of a spacefaring ship of your own, you must find your way back home to Earth, picking up party members from across the Star Ocean franchise to join you on your quest.
It’s an action-RPG, featuring full 3D movement in battle, bridging the gameplay from the mainline games into the mobile iteration. You can have up to 4 party members in your party as you battle monsters and explore different planets. You can also team-up with other players online and explore the cosmos together.
Fans of the franchise should definitely check this game out, as it brings the usual console gameplay to smaller screens and is aesthetically faithful to the franchise too. A second season of the game titled Twin Eclipse is coming to Japan sometime this month, and hopefully, that extra content will be making to the English version soon. Download the game on IOS and Android today!
