I've said it before and I'll say it again.
I would be totally fine with a Star Ocean reboot.
There is seriously very little room for any continuation or prequel right now.
A reboot is good in the sense that you get to keep the things that were good and scrap the ones that weren't (like the universe is an MMORPG).

Watch it turn out to be an iOS PtP CCG PoS like everything else that Squeenix is doing right now (that isn't FFXVersus, KH3, FFXIII-3, FFXIVmk2, or Drakengard 3).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I LOLed.

Although I have to admit, they made a lot of good moves at E3. I think they're doing a very good job of balancing their projects between mobile stuff and "stuff for us" right now.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

!!!! :D

I know people here have bitter feelings about the Star Ocean series, but I still feel they're incredible titles that require more than level grinding to win the day (and take place in usually pretty fancy settings), so even trademark "news" gets me pretty darn excited. x)

Calling it now, reboot with the main cast from 1 as a result of someone time travelling.

Side note: I mentally correlate Star Ocean games with Star Trek series/movies. Last Star Ocean game was the Enterprise game, so the next one has to be the reboot one.

Doesn't explain Star Ocean 3.

But admittedly the Matrix was still popular at the time (before the rest of the trilogy kinda ruined it).
I mentally map that one to Voyager, which I acknowledge does not have a lot in common with S03.

A desperate longing stemming from abandonment issues? :v

I would be really excited if they did another console or handheld Star Ocean. I'll admit being disappointed with 3 and 4, mainly due to the plots of both games (as well as 4's characters, except Arumat) but I loved 4's battle system and thought it was the best in the series. Also, I liked that 3 kept the optional character choice system, where there are 4 potential characters that can join your party but you can only choose 2, which reminds me of 2 with choosing between Opera+Ernest or Ashton and Bowman or Precis. SO2 is one of my favorite games ever, so I definitely hold the SO series in great esteem despite the shortcomings of the latter entries.

If they made Private Actions like they were in first 3 installments I'd be really fucking happy.

Full 3D remake of SO2 (PS3/4 style) would actually make my head explode.... it'd probably need serious plot revamping, but I'm just super saiyan.

I didn't know where to put this so I figured why not here.

Isn't this kind of like jailing an arsonist then letting him work in a match factory?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Reposting for emphasis.


(Technically, this is effectively promoting the guy out of the trenches and away from anybody doing anything important. Kinda like promoting a captain, lets say Kirk, into an admiral where he is left to administrate and nose about in top secret research rather than being left at the helm of his ship, for lack of a better example shall be referred to as the Enterprise, which he could run into the ground, by like settling an old score, or outright sinking it, perhaps taking a few Klingons down with it if we're lucky. But then again, this is Squeenix we're talking about here, so who knows?)
