At first it was like, yay girls in functional clothing! Then witch girl happened. I guess every Star Ocean needs one of those. Atleast she's not wearing a floating shower curtain, I guess.

(Favourite silly Star Ocean character design is still Albel. I'm pretty sure you can play female armour bingo with that one and win.)

And people bitch about FE's Awakening Tharja's and Camilla's outfits. At least, you aren't wondering how the hell those things are staying on.


Anyways, in addition to the three named characters and the checkered boobies witch, there's also a Red Swordsdude who you can see the back of below (no idea who he is but is probably male since he's too tall and can be seen in another image fighting alongside Fidel).



And again, they look like goddamn dolls (especially with all that Starship lighting).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

A lot less so than in Star Ocean 4

Well that's not any worse than 4's porcelain dolls at least.

It's more important to not have those really jerky/floaty awkward movements and to not have EVERYTHING scenes, 'kay?

the fact it's aiming to be more like star ocean 3 is a plus to me. i hated the boss system in SO4

Yay, Star Ocean, yay tri-ace! \o/

...nuuu, that character design. Why? D=

Well, at least it looks way better than the character models in StarOcean4. And I always trust the series to give us well crafted gaming-experiences, if nothing else. Call me interested.

I can agree with that. The whole "Find the weak point" thing got really tiring after a while.

I really liked Star Ocean 3 so for me that news is good news. Now the PS3/PS4 thing is probably because it's been 6 years since Star Ocean 4 and they more than likely have been working on this game for PS3 for years and then the PS4 came out and they decided to port it. Doesn't really bother me much. I'll play it knowing it was originally a PS3 game on my PS4 just because I would rather play it on my PS4.

I actually like the doll character look.
I prefer a well done consistent style than just reaching for perfect realism.

Chldhood friend's design is really good.
Checkered is... hmmm... I'll be interested to see an in-game explanation to that.
She makes this thread NSFW also...

The doll thing would have been tolerable...except for the not very good motion capture. The exaggerated movements really don't help. Eternal Sonata had a bit of the same problem where the designs on their own are pretty nice, but when you add in the (semi)realistic movements it just starts looking really weird.

That's the thing, right?

Like, just once I want someone in sensible clothes to ask one of these other characters "What the hell are you wearing!?" but nobody ever seems to even notice. In any JRPG franchise.

Hey, I remember Jude wondering if Milla's skirt isn't too short! But... other than that I'm drawing a blank.

Anyway, let's just be glad Witch Girl looks legal.

This is a pipe dream, but I'm hoping for the return of Private Actions.

Star Ocean 4 still had PA's, they were in the form of the scenes you can witness while on the Calnus waiting for the next planet to load warp drive.

Maybe when you get her ending, she tells you she keeps up an illusion spell to look older and is like 10 for real.

First response:


Second (screenshot) response:


Super fucking bummed it looks absolutely nothing like the tech demo.... sigh* :(


Ah well, hopefully combat will kick ass, there will be something cool to explore here and there, and y'know, Sakuraba will be back with "non-Tales sound" (ie; usually better work).
