New Star Ocean The Second Story R Key Art Revealed via Famitsu

The upcoming Weekly Famitsu magazine issue for this week, set to launch on October 26, 2023, has revealed new artwork for Star Ocean The Second Story R. Fans can look forward to 16 pages of coverage, including a new interview with Motoi Sakuraba and special messages from select staff.

We’ll keep you all informed of any significant new information and share this new key illustration in full if a clear version is provided. You can pre-order this Famitsu issue via Amazon Japan for ¥590.

Star Ocean The Second Story R will feature fully voiced event scenes with the original voice cast, a newly arranged soundtrack by original composer Motoi Sakuraba with new songs, including some with a live band, as well as the new Break and Assault Action combat mechanics.

Players can anticipate two selectable protagonists, Claude and Rena, akin to the recently released Star Ocean The Divine Force. Claude is a Pangalactic Federation officer and son of the legendary Ronyx Kenny, causing him to have internal strife regarding his identity. During a mission, Claude’s ego gets the better of him as he’s transported to an underdeveloped planet and spotted by Rena, confusing him for the Hero of Light.

The Earth, Galaxy, and Universe difficulties will also be implemented. Further, the developer is Gemdrops, known for porting Star Ocean: The Second Evolution to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan. The original game was developed by tri-Ace.

Subtitled French, Italian, German, and Spanish language support will also be available via a launch day update.
