Star Ocean developer tri-Ace’s take on the hunting genre turns players into a pioneers. While you’re exploring uncharted territory in Frontier Gate, you’ll have a partner. No, it’s not a cat or other anthropomorphic creature.
Frontier Gate has a partner character system and who you bring changes the story. Famitsu’s latest look at the PSP game shows beaches and even more partners. Before you decide to take a novice adventurer or a local girl, here’s a look at some of the other possible partners.
Mariaschellte is a knight hailing from Indaig Kingdom. She wields a spear and has some kind of goal on Frontier. Sigrid is also a knight, but carries a sword roughly his height. His orders are to deal with illegal pioneers, a job he is strangely interested in. Emilio is a swordsmith seeking legendary weapons from Frontier. Dundes is thought of as a hero by many. Hammer in hand, Dundes helped discover Froniter. Nike is a bow wielding native who is particularly interested in colonists. Volker is a mysterious knight who has a habit of appearing at the right place at the right time. Kurotoki washed ashore to Frontier after an accident. He appears to be tri-Ace’s take on a samurai.
