PS4/PS3 Exclusive Star Ocean 5 Gets its “Final” Trailer, PS4 Themes and a Ton of Gameplay Footage (UPDATED)

on February 29, 2016 10:00 PM

Today Square Enix showcased a brand new story trailer of Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness, that will be released in Japan on March 31st for PS4 and PS3.

On top of the trailer, that you can see in the first video below, we also got to take a look at two PS4 themes (the first of which exclusive to pre-orders on Amazon Japan), also featured in the second and third videos.

But that’s not all. The publisher broadcasted a metric ton of gameplay footage, that you can see in the full recording of the livestream in the fourth video below.

We get to see the very beginning of the game at the 16 minutes mark and a segment aboard the Starship at 35:51. Incidentally, now that I heard the game’s Director pronouncing its name, it definitely sounds like “Charles D. Gaulle,” which is a very obvious reference to France’s former president and national hero General Charles de Gaulle.

At 41:37 we get to see the ship’s teleporter feature, that sends the party down to the surface and works as fast travel. At 55:49 we see the differences between the PS4 and PS3 versions, which you can read spelled in this post. At 01:07:10 there’s even more gameplay showcasing Victor’s subordinates Gunther, Hana and Dax.

Lastly, two laser-etched PS4 hard disk drive covers that will be released for the game were showcased. You can check them out at the bottom of the post.

Update: replaced the trailer recorded from the livestream with the official, direct feed version.
