The game’s release date is a bit closer than you might expect.

Daniel Seto, Square Enix community manager, has revealed on Sony’s official blog that Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will be releasing on July 1st on PS4 in the UK. Alas, last gen players, Sony nor Square Enix mention a potential release date for the PS3 version. It was recently delayed to April 28th in Japan while the PS4 version has been out since March 31st.

Despite being the fifth entry in the Star Ocean franchise, Seto confirms that “you don’t have to play the previous games to enjoy the story of this one“. Improving on the previous games’ battle systems, Integrity and Faithlessness will let players have parties of seven (!) characters. This should make for some chaotic on-screen action.
