At the end of May 2022, more Star Ocean news was teased. Now, People will soon learn more about the next Star Ocean game. Square Enix confirmed that there will be a Star Ocean Program Special Edition stream in Japan discussing Star Ocean: The Divine Force. It will appear at 4 a.m. PT/7 a.m. ET/1 p.m. CET/8 p.m. JST on June 29, 2022. It has only been announced for Japan so far. [Thanks, Gematsu!]
A few details appeared as a result of this. In Star Ocean: The Divine Force, people will be able to choose their protagonist. Folks can be either Princess Laeticia of Aucerius on Aster IV or Captain Raymond Laurence from Verguld, who is head of the Ydas spaceship. (The same sort of decision appeared in Star Ocean: The Second Story.) This presentation will show off a bit of the start of Raymond’s story. His Japanese voice actor, Subaru Kimura, will appear.
Here’s the official embed for the video.
