Anamnesis: (noun) The remembering of things from a supposed previous existence.

The latest Star Ocean outing is not another console release, as some had hoped, but rather a walk down memory lane on mobile devices. Star Ocean: Anamnesis follows an unnamed federation captain who must journey home after being transported to an unmapped sector of space by a failed warp jump. There he meets a mysterious woman with the power to summon warriors from other planes of existence. Think of it as an anime version of Star Trek: Voyager.
