Square Enix has elaborated on their previously announced title Star Ocean Integrity and Faithlessness. The initial trailer provided a recap of the previous titles in the series alongside a build of the gameplay. Tri-Ace producer Shuichi Kobayashi took the stage to discuss details of the game. He mentioned that the team’s goal was to break the notion of JRPGs are ‘movies instead of games’. There will be an emphasis on seamlessness into real-time battles. As for cutscenes, the aim is to keep these events to a minimum through making the majority of events dynamically integrated into the gameplay. That said, there will be sporadic ‘cutscene events’ when they seem most appropriate. The footage shown was at 30fps, but the goal is a 60fps experience.
The title will release in Winter 2015 for Japan while the US and Europe will see the title in 2016 as a Playstation 4 exclusive.
