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.

I've only played Star Ocean Till the End of Time but that one left me with mixed feelings. Started out great traveling from planet to planet (kinda like Rogue Galaxy), then there's a lot of back and forth on one planet which made the whole game a drag and then the end started to pick up again with a surprising twist.
Reiner, I also have learned not to get my hopes to set on something. The picture does really feel like Star Ocean though, but who knows? I sure as hell can't wait to find out.
10PM tomorrow? Right on, that's shortly after I get home from work. I'll have to bookmark this and wait for the countdown.
This better not end up like that *** twewy teaser site!
A new Star Ocean would be amazing.
I can't wait to see what this will be!
That's cool. Whoo.
I'm excited to see what it is. I'd also like a Just Cause 3 announcement too.
sounds good to me but gahh i just want verus 13 already ... plus who knows since start ocean is normally done by tri-ace i think just SE pub
Still needa play Star Ocean: Last Hope International and the others....
Here's hoping for a new Star Ocean game! The Last Hope was decent, but didn't really bode well with me.
If it is a Star Ocean game, I've got mixed feelings on this one, since I enjoyed First Departure but really disliked Till the End of Time. I should probably give The Last Hope a chance. The option for Japanese dialogue is a plus.
Really hoping it's a new Star Ocean game
please let it be star ocean!
I really do hope it's a new Star Ocean....and I also really do hope that they set a date in real time, not FF time.
