A new batch of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness screenshots and information has been released by Square Enix today. The new information we received presents us to Victor’s subordinates—Gunther, Hana, and Dax, Relia’s mysterious power and two dungeons found in the game. You can read all the new information thanks to Gematsu for the translation.
■ The Kingdom of Resulia’s Central Resulia Army Special Forces Special Response Tactics Group
Victor’s trustworthy subordinates who will help out Fidel and friends in a variety of battles.
- CV: Hiroshi Tsuchida
- Gender: Male
- Age: 26
- Weapon: Fists
- Origin: Saltview, Kingdom of Resulia, Planet Faykreed
One of Victor’s subordinates who belongs to the Kingdom of Resulia’s Central Resulia Army Special Forces Special Response Tactics Group. When carrying out an operation, he is entrusted with a very important role and always rushes in first, and while there is a side to him that is mischievous and lacks experience, he has the deep trust and high expectations of Victor’s superior officers.
- CV: Hana Takeda
- Gender: Female
- Age: 22
- Weapon: Staff
- Origin Ronsack, Kingdom of Langdauq, Planet Faykreed
Despite being only 22, she is one of Victor’s subordinates who belongs to the Kingdom of Resulia’s Central Resulia Army Special Forces Special Response Tactics Group. With her high signeturgy capabilities, she was also working with Fiore in the Langdauq Royal Signeturgy Research Institute. To prove her abilities, she joins the Kingdom of Resulia’s army. She is the daughter of a prestigious family and speaks in a “desu wa”-style tone. (Editor’s Note: This is women’s language that adds a feminine touch to the sentence.)
- CV: Tokuyoshi Kawashima
- Gender: Male
- Age: 40
- Weapon: Bow gun
- Origin: Northern Territory of Sohma, Kingdom of Resulia, Planet Faykreed
Belongs to the Special Response Tactics Group in the same hometown as Victor. He’s older than Victor, but still respects him as his boss. Although one might say the accuracy of the information brought by Dax determines the success or failure of their operations, this is no exaggeration, as Dax is the team’s important intelligence member. He is a silent character who does not often speak unless necessary.
Relia’s Mysterious Power
In battle, when Relia’s mysterious power is suddenly activated, the tides of battle can quickly change. It appears to be something like signeturgy and stops all enemies in their tracks.
Ally Support Skills
In battle, Relia can consume MP to activate support skills that enhance the status of her allies for a certain amount of time. These skills include weapon-based physical attack power-ups, physical defense power-ups, signeturgy-based mental attack power-ups, and mental defense power-ups.
Northern Territory of Sohma
Victor’s hometown located in the northernmost part of the Kingdom of Resulia. It had not snowed for a year here, but within two-to-three months snowfall had piled up in many areas. To the south, you can see the peaks of the snow-filled Eihied Mountains, and enjoy the tranquil and beautiful scenery. However, unlike the tropical-style life of Sthal Village, the people of Sohma live setting their wits to work as to protect themselves from the severe winter cold.
Western Dakaav Mine
An old, now abandoned mine that connects the Kingdom of Resulia to the Kingdom of Trei’kur. Since it was once possible to mine a variety of minerals, people from all over once gathered here and its surrounding towns prospered. Since the mine was intricately dug a long distance, the mine itself is complicated, and because it has been left alone for such a long time, there is no one that remembers a more detailed path through the tunnel. It is a place where if a single person makes the mistake of going in alone and gets lost inside, they’re at risk of losing their life.
Star Ocean 5 is scheduled to release on Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 on March 31st in Japan, and later this year exclusively on Playstation 4 in North America and Europe.
