Watch Over 20 Minutes of Star Ocean 5 Livestream Footage
Technically it isn't live anymore, but you get the idea.
12.17.15 - 8:18 PM

A recent broadcast of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness footage walks viewers (in Japanese) through over 20 minutes of gameplay. The video starts with the classic Star Ocean of action combat. After Fidel swings his sword around for a bit, we see the Private Action system at play in some of the game's gorgeous environments. The video concludes with a demonstration of a frenzied battle with seven party members, as well as a new feature that lets you switch the background music with that of other Tri-Ace titles like Valkyrie Profile and Valkyrie Profile 2. Check it out below, the video coming courtesy of Dual Shockers.

Further, a recent Famitsu scan shows off the Japanese box art by character designer Akiman. It also tells us that the theme song is called "Astra Nova" by Japanese band Androp and will be featured in a new trailer to premier at Jump Festa 2016.
