Following the reveal of the disc one tracklist for the soundtrack of Star Ocean: The Second Story R, Square Enix has made a preview version of the game’s soundtrack available on streaming services.
The following seven songs are featured in this preview:
- The venerable forest
- Pure a stream
- Deadly hatred
- Shower of blossoms
- Field of Exper
- At the crack of dawn
It’s worth noting that ‘Field of Exper,” the world map theme, is over ten minutes long, which is pretty wild.
You can listen to the Star Ocean: The Second Story R soundtrack preview via Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, and more. You can view and access the full list of available streaming services via the link hub.
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.
