Square Enix revealed the latest details on Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness with info on its villain Del Soule, a look at a couple new dungeons, its transporter system, and more.
Del Soule (CV: Kazuya Nakai)
Origin: Kingdom of Tei’kur, Planet Faykreed
Del Soule is the brave general of the Trei’kur army. He’s skilled with the sword, but he’s also specializes in fire attacks as a Signeturgy knight.
He has a barbaric personality, and won’t hesitate to do any brutal acts in order to get things done, such as holding a small child like Relia hostage. His markings glow red when using fire Signeturgy.
You will face Del Soule when Victor and the Resulia army go on to fight in the invasion of East Trei’kur.
The above is a look at a dungeon called the “Trei’kur Execution Tower.” The dungeon is located on the northwestern parts of East Trei’kur. These ruins were once used as a ground for executions, but is now used as a camp for the soldiers.
Next is the “Mysterious Research Facility.” It’s a vast research facility where you’ll see various devices developed from technology and liquid-filled glass tubes with some sort of living creatures inside them. What kind of research was being done using these creatures?
The “Transporter” is a system that lets you go from the Charles de Gaulle warp room to any place you’ve been to before. Since you’re able to return to the Charles de Gaulle using a communications device, you can always use it to travel to faraway locations.
By managing to hit enemies before they notice you, it’ll set you up with a preemptive attack called “Advantage Attack,” and if they get you first it starts out as a “Surprise Attack,” with both their advantages and disadvantages. Starting with an Advantage Attack temporarily increases your ATK (physical attack) and INT (mind attack).
On the other hand, starting out with a Surprise Attack will temporarily lower your DEF (physical defense).
Next up is an introduction to Miki’s Signeturgy:
Explosion: Brings down a fireball from above and causes a giant explosion. Since the explosion has such range, it’s possible to do multiple hits at once.
Resurrection: Restores an incapacitated ally and recovers all of their health.
Sunshine: Drops numerous rays of lights from above to hit multiple targets. It also has an effect that lowers enemy INT.
Finally, here’s a look at some of Anne’s battle features.
Cannon Blaze (Reserve Rush): She starts by hitting an opponent upward with her palms then follows up with an energy wave attack.
Might Discharge (Guard Counter): She forms a ball of energy and blasts it towards enemies. This can also be used to escape when surrounded by enemies or to start up a combo.
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will release in Japan on March 31, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The game is headed westward in 2016.
