Star Ocean 5, or popularly known as Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, was the the latest main numbered entry from the game developer tri-Ace and publisher Square Enix. Combine an intergalactic adventure RPG with science and magic (symbology), you will get a taste of the Star Ocean series.
This game will take place between the second main series (Star Ocean: The Second Story) and the third main series (Star Ocean: Till The End of Time). The game’s main setting will take place at the planet Feycreed, which is 6000 years light years from the earth.
According to the game prologue (via Gamerant), this is the possible conflict that will arise in the game:
“It’s been several centuries since leaving behind Earth, and the humans that surpassed countless struggles have created the ‘Galactic Federation‘, with the hope of obtaining unified order and peace.
However, flames of new war have begun to ignite anew.”
Star Ocean:Integrity and Faithlessness characters gameplay was showcased several times before this day. In this game, you can bring ALL the characters into the battle at once, so it will be important to understand each member’s capability.
You can look the gameplay compilation for each playable characters below.
Fidel is the main protagonist and his appearance resembles a bit of Fayt Leingod, the protagonist from Star Ocean: Till The end of Time. His hair color also following the trend of odd-numbered Star Ocean series, with Roddick Farrence (First Star Ocean), Fayt, and Fidel all having the blue color for their hair.
Fidel is a 23-year old swordsman from the Kingdom of Resulia. He inherited his swordsmanship skills from his father, who is a respected swordsman in the kingdom. He is sincere in nature and has a hidden passion within him.
Miki is your typical protagonist’s childhood friend. Yeah, she grew up with Fidel since their childhood. Because of the difference with their ages, Miki loves Fidel as his brother. She lives and guard her village, Stahl, and excel in healing magic.
Viktor is a soldier from the Kingdom of Resulia. He belongs to the kingdom’s special force and very faithful to all of his duties. His loyalty and faithfulness make his subordinates trust him so much. Although he is also very serious in nature, deep down he still questions himself about killing others in a war.
Fiore is your typical sexy mage. She belongs to the Spellmark Magic Institute from Kingdom of Langdauq. She wears a (very) revealing outfit, but this is probably because of she want to show off the advance magic symbols carved in her leg.
Emmerson might look a bit scary at first, but he is actually a very honest person. His two favorite things in the world are women and alcohol. He is flirty towards the women and brings a bow gun as his main weapon.
Anne is calm, intelligent, but also a strict person. She travels with Emmerson and has a ‘speedy’ combat style. Although she seems cold at first, she actually has a hidden soft spot. Well, Anne loves cat 🙂
Lilia is the youngest in the group. She lost her memories because of a mysterious incident and later encounter Fidel and the gangs. She thinks Miki as ”her mother’ because she take a great care for her.
Lilia can participate in battle but not directly playable, so there is no specific trailer for her battle style. Her main function in the group is as a support character.
