        what good about this games is that it have some good storyline, the looks could easily be fix through imagination (LOL), games of today lacks storyline and very different from what i always imagine of how games will be in the future i guess the games will never be as good the one in our imaginations

            Fingers Crossed this lends to a Second Story release.

              In my opinion Switch is the best and more comfortable way to play rpg ( even if there's not all the rpg i'm just talking about te comfort )

                  Pretty hyped for this. 'Star Ocean: 2nd Story' pulled me into its world when I was a teenager... almost twenty years ago

                                    The problem is SO3, 4 and 5 have repeated storyline.

                                        looks cool. but that voice acting is cringe af. hopefully you can mute it.

                                                I remember first hearing about "Star Ocean" because of a PS2 game, Til The End Of Time, or something like that. It looked interesting to me from the images in game magazines I used to love reading back then. This game looks interesting too. If I've never played any game in the series, would it be fine to get this one?

                                                    What is the point of giving the characters new artwork if the sprites are the same as the ones from the psp?

I tried playing an SO1 game on emulator many years ago, but the item list was not translated to English, so I didn't get very far. Finally, a real chance to jump into things.

                                                                                    If Nintendo ever remakes Xenosaga for Switch, I'll never need another counsel again.

                                                                                      @Waji Hemisphere - You are correct, and that does make me sad. My hopes really are rooted in Cena blade Chronicles thriving as a series, and KOSMOS regaining recognition as a character again. Maybe I'd settle for a while if she made it into Smash, but only for a while. Still never got to play Xenosaga Episode 3.

                                                                                      And they're awfully bad these years so I don't have high hopes.

Preordered Star Ocean 5 and although yes, they definitely improved combat and a bunch of other things, the story took a drastic downfall IMO (I mean, the series is called Star Ocean yet you go into outer space like twice and not even to other planets, just the outer spaces of the one planet you can only explore). Excited to play the first (because I’ve heard good things) and hopefully the series continue onwards and upwards.
