The lights are on
Update: The site has finally refreshed and Square Enix has unveiled Star Galaxy. Read more about it here.
Update: The countdown has ended! And it looks like nothing has changed on the website. Is Square Enix trolling us?
Is a new Star Ocean game in the works? Square Enix's teaser website for an upcoming game announcement screams of this beloved RPG series. Along with a countdown timer, which expires in one day, the site offers a not-so-subtle hint of what we can expect from the game with the words "star, epic, border, war, galaxy, divide, supremacy, ambition, bandiera."
That sounds like Star Ocean to me, but I've learned to never rule anything out with Square Enix. Knowing how this company loves to give games ridiculous names, it could be Kingdom Hearts: Star, Epic, Border, War, Galaxy, Divide, Supremacy, Ambition, Bandiera. We'll have an answer in one day, folks.
Thanks go out to GI reader Vinny V for the news tip. Check out Joe's review of the last Star Ocean release.

A new Star Ocean?? Yes sir, I'll take it!
Prepare for the arrival... of a mobile game :p
lol, joke's on all of us. THAT IS THE TITLE.
Please be another Star Ocean. I enjoyed The Last Hope; although not the full 1k lol
Square + RPG scares me these days.
The countdown timer and teaser website was cool the first time, but not the third. Especially after the TWEWY 'reveal'. And if this is an iOS port…
Square Enix has decided to take the Dragon Quest series in a new direction...
...no but seriously, I'm going with a new Star Ocean/iOS port/remake of some sort.
I suppose thats ok
Yes.. Yes.. Yes.. star ocean.. i remember seeing a demo video of the tech they've been working on.. in it was a model of the famous star ocean ship from the last game.. it reaked Star Ocean 5 ( i think it's part 5 ) correct me if im wrong.. but this is signs of a new star ocean coming..
i loved this rpg! glad to have it in my library.
My guess goes to Versus 13.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh let me dream.
But in all seriousness, it's probably a new Star Ocean. Which reminds me that I still need to beat the first two on PSP and Leg of Her ***. Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky, you pervert! Yeah, you. I saw you giggle there.
Star Ocean : The Mobile Card Game
There you have it ;P
This is probably an iOS or browser based Star Ocean game. Square rarely teases console or handheld titles through a website.
Ah, an anouncement of an anouncement. God they love doing this, don't they?
Omg I would love a new Chrono game!
Sorry my phone doesn't let me reply directly to people's comments
I read the review for the last Staf Ocean and GI game it a 7 I believe so hopefully this one will be a little better.
Star Ocean would be cool, but hopefully they're just totally rebooting the series and distancing it from games like Last Hope. I love the concept, but I cannot stand the ceaseless anime tropes and awful voice acting. Star Ocean was once great, and deserves to be great again.
I come to GI, click no this post, and I ***, in, my pants.
(Insert the music from the *** in my pants SNL short here)
I agree everything from the background picture to the list of words scream star ocean. I actually thought it was a star ocean announcement just scrolling on the homepage when I saw the picture for this article.
I was also going to make a simular joke about how it is going to be the next kindom hearts game.
Would bee more excited if this turns out to be a new Silpheed/Project Sylpheed game.
If this is a stupid iOS game I'm gonna be so super duper pissed, or if its Star Ocean for iOS then I'll be super duper duper pissed off. Screw iOS games
