Star Ocean 4 is a prequel, plus more game details


1:18 PM on 04.02.2008



While Japan is just now seeing the release of Star Ocean 2 for the PSP (we're still waiting!), a few more details on Star Ocean 4 come to us by way of Famitsu.

The latest issue of Famitsu says that Star Ocean 4 is actually a prequel. It takes place in the time before Star Ocean 1, when warp drive first comes to be, and humans take their first steps into space. IGN says that the developers originally wanted to call this title "Star Ocean 0." 

Even though we still don't know what system this game will be released for, we do know a few more details on gameplay and story. First off, a guy named Edge Maverick and a heroine named Reimi Saionji are mentioned. They are childhood friends. Famitsu says that the number of characters you can make into allies is on a Star Ocean 3 level. Also, the game's battle system will be similar to previous titles' real-time combat system. Finally, it seems that there will be some kind of network connectivity.

I hope they release more details and visuals soon. Oh, and there had better be cooking in this title! 

What system do you think this will be released on? My guess is the PS3, and i'm also guessing that it will support PSP connectivity with the Star Ocean 1 and 2 remakes.
