Sea of Stars  Elder Mist Boss Battle

Today Sabotage Studio released a new video of its gorgeous pixel-art RPG Sea of Stars, showcasing one of the bosses that will appear in the game.

Specifically, we get to see the Elder Mist in action. Interestingly, he's not just a boss, but also a relevant character who will advise and guide the protagonists. Apparently, at times that also includes some tough love. 

Elder Mist has a whole dedicated area which we have seen multiple times before, and within which we'll attempt to overcome the Elder Mist Trials. If I was a betting man, my money would be that this boss battle is the culmination of said trials.

You can watch it below. While it's brief, it's certainly another nice showcase of the game's beautiful pixel-art style.

Sea of Stars is a prequel set in the universe of Sabotage's Studio acclaimed game The Messenger and it has been funded with a successful Kickstarter campaign that reached its goal in a single day. It'll release for PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One on August 29, 2023. A demo is already available on Nintendo Switch and has recently been released for PC as well

This game offers retro-style turn-based battles with timed attacks and defense, tactical use of damage types, and more. The pixel art visuals are beautiful, with dynamic lighting and additional effects.

The music includes contributions from renowned JRPG composer Yasunori Mitsuda, though he didn't compose the entire soundtrack. You can read more about the score in our previous dedicated article from a few weeks ago, on top of a clip showing the "Artful Gambit" option intended to add challenge to the game, and an extensive video showing the "Wheels" tabletop minigame that can be played at taverns.
