The Star Ocean Series Is Back, Here’s Why It’s Still Fun | GameInformer


"Star Ocean will always hold a special place in my heart, earning its claim to fame for its engaging action-battle system, copious customization options, and multiple eclectic party members.

STAR ocean 2 and 3 were great games but somehow Star Ocean 4 was a letdown for me and many so here hoping SO5 can return the series back to its early success. Looking forward of seeing more of it.

Can't wait! Hope there's Bunnie Races again!

Also, I hope the item creation goes back to TTEOT's system, with recruitable creators!

SO2 is one of my favorite RPGs ever. That alone makes me very happy when a new SO is close to release.
