Looks very star ocean'y Im up for it...

despite the awful story/soundtrack/characters, i actually liked the combat.

If they have decent characters this time..ill definitely grab it instead of borrowing a friends copy.

Please, Square, please make decent characters this time. Please.

You really think they would bother making all this teaser for a phone game?? If this really ends up being a stupid phone/social game i'll rage quit SE :x

SO5 2013 PS3/Vita/Xbox release make it happen!

It's square enix we are talking about here. Yes, they would do all sorts of sh*t just for a mobile game. And they have done it before.

It's probably a Vita game. I remember them teasing "oh my gurd a new Parasite Eve game" *me pouncing up and down like a school girl* "it's for the psp" *me crying in a corner cursing a few words at SE*

Here's hoping it will be better than Mass Effect but honestly after playing Mass Effect games i expect something to be either similar to ME or better from SE ( since SO and ME are quite similar in terms of setting)

once you go Mass Effect you can never look at anything else.

#15 Posted by CLOUDsea (1085 posts) -

I'd really like to see a Star Ocean at least as tolerable as 1 & 2. I find myself wanting to play SO4, but if the story is really that bad, it'll probably turn me off from playing it.

Expect this to be something terribly disappointing like a cell phone game though.

They did for TWEWY going to phone, so yes, it's possible.

Can't wait and if they get rid of the whiney voice characters it would be wonderful!

At 20 I would. Maybe 30 if they added in some cool bonus stuff, like extra story that wasn't able to make it on the original disc. It's the only excusable reason for not releasing an announced remaster of an already made game imo.

I'm assuming that doing it right takes time. They're probably upgrading some minor graphical things. Like the faces on the nameless NPCs. *shudder*

Here's hoping it comes out next year.

boy SE sure is busy next year as they have the follow:

  • Final Fantasy XIII Finale ( Lighting Returns)
  • Kingdom Hearts PS3 Collection
  • Final Fantasy 14 new world reborn ( PC and PS3 )
  • FFX HD ( Vita/PS3 ) ( nowhere to be seen )
  • Final Fantasy Versus ( nowhere to be seen )
  • This secret game ( SO5?)

I just wish if they would work a little faster with development.. sigh just hire more people, seriously most Western developers produce 3 or 4 games a year so why does it take years to produce one game from SE? sigh anyways as always all we can do as gamers is wait

Yeah I think they were redrawing some things through the White Engine but it would be nice to hear more than just "wait guys, it's coming." I think a 720P screenshot would be nice to see at least.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch! ( i know i know its not in space but its still worth looking at/playing :P )

Something like Xenosaga or Phantasy Star 4 would be great. Rogue Galaxy ... I haven't played. I remember seeing screenshots of more traditional JRPG areas. Which is basically what Star Ocean is for the most part.

Nah I give em a lot of flak but only because they're one of my favorite devs. Their fantastic publishers also, I just wish they weren't so barren of information at times.

Also, who knows what they're doing with FF Agnes at this point so might as well add that to their checklist.

It'd better be native 1080p and run at 60 FPS. FFX is more than ten years old, and if you can't get it to run like that on a last gen console, that says a lot about how much time you put into developing it.

ok maybe that isnt correct but you know what i mean :P, it dosent take too long for most big devs to produce games and high quality ones too ( period from uncharted 2 to 3, borderlands to B2, halo reach to halo 4 and so on ) SE takes 5+ years for one game ( except FFXIII which been coming pretty fast about time they learn doing that)

SO5 wouldn't be square it would be Tri-Ace. Who has been working on smaller projects and just had a new PSP game announced.

It takes most Western developers 2-3 years. But Square has always taken forever to produce stuff. Plus their games have to be localized, which takes quite a while.

Never played a Xenosaga or Phantasy Star game. Rogue Galaxy's world setup is a lot like Mass Effect, selecting what world you want to go to, though it obviously doesn't allow the choices in story like ME (or rather the illusion of choice:P)

There are a few times in the story where you fight on the ship's deck but it's more cyberpunk than spacey.

Do the current collections run at that resolution and framerate? As far as I knew Flower was the only PS3 game to hit that performance.

Thats also another issue which they can fix ( localize alongside the japanese version) but i think they are actually trying now, i mean FFXIII-2 didnt take too long to get it localized so heres hoping they are indeed fixing everything ( they did also say they would love to make a big FF game every year and at a faster rate too ).

anyways guess will see what this secret game is next week.

God of War Collection runs around that, I think. Pretty sure Jak and Daxter Collection does. Ditto on the Metal Gear Solid Collection.

Really, there's no reason why they shouldn't be able to handle it.

Square has mostly been slow because of the white engine and deciding to remake XIV after it failed.

Yeah, that would be nice. But as we all know, last gen (PS3 and 360) was very hard for Japanese developers. Indeed. Hopefully it's something cool.

I do believe that them baseball PS3 exclusives did as well and wipeout HD.
