The 5th installment in the Star Ocean series received a new trailer for E3. The video reconfirms the game’s commitment to seamless transition both in terms of combat and world. The developers talked briefly on stage about the game and said one of their goals is to destroy the notion that all JRPGs are movies with periods of gameplay. To that end and in keeping with the seamless goal, it sounds like most of the game’s story scenes will be live-played dynamic events. It was also shown that more than the standard Star Ocean four-character party could partake in battle, and all of your active party members follow the main character around on the world map. The game was confirmed to be coming to both North America and Europe sometime in 2016, and the goal is to release it in Japan at the end of this year. More on this as it develops.
