Well, there goes tri-Ace, developer of Star Ocean

Sad

Recommended Videos

Today is a sad day for tri-Ace fans. It appears as though mobile developer Nepro Japan has fully acquired the studio that built Star Ocean, Resonance of Fate, and one of my favorite PlayStation games of all time, Valkyrie Profile.

The acquisition will force tri-Ace into a mobile development role, helping to scale up Nepro Japan’s operation. The studio was pretty active recently, helping Square Enix with Lightning Returns and developing Phantasy Star Nova for Sega.

I’m happy that tri-Ace is able to continue on as a developer and maybe they’ll make some great mobile titles, but it’s certainly the end of an era for JRPG fans.
