Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Square Enix and tri-Ace have released a new trailer for Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness introducing party member Anne.

The 28 year-old Anne travels with Emerson, another party member, and is described as intellectual, well composed, relentlessly chide but not necessarily cold, and with a hidden kindness. She also loves cats.

If you missed it, catch the previous clips here: Fidel, Miki and Victor.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on March 31, and for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in 2016.

Watch the trailer below.

    Anne is so cute especially for her love for cats. :3

  • Traingham

    So it looks like Valkyrie Profile BGMs are going to be DLC?

    • Bumbayker

      They’re included as a code when you pre-order the game and only 3 tracks each from VP1 & VP2. They don’t intend to make any DLCs.

    I love brawlers. Looks like she’ll be my favorite to control, assuming Welch isn’t at all playable.

    • KOKAYI5

      Maybe Welch will join as a post-game dungeon character.

  • BurgerUnit

    She might be my favorite of the playable characters revealed (old dude with the gun looks fun too), but to be kind of nitpicky, her head seems kind of small. Maybe it’s just me. Still doing better than squirrel face though.

    • KOKAYI5

      Might be the bulky armor making it look that way.

    • nekolife

      I dearly wish they would fix the ugly heroine’s derp face. :(

  • Kero


    I prefer the witch.

  • MrTyrant

    Im tired of japan cat lover characters. Seriously, its really cliched when they force a tough/serious girl to show her cute side by just putting cats that she cant stop loving.

    • Mr_SP

      …I can only think of two.

      If anything, the problem is that this trailer added literally no other personality traits than looking for a cat.

      • MrTyrant

        I can think on plenty and most of them present in visual novels or mangas. In fact there is a 60% chances that any cool, cold and serious looking characters might have a love for cats as a trait and always used to let us see that she isnt that “cruel”

        The best part of the vid is the battles, looking great there.

        • quodvadis

          Examples please? Not the obscure ones that only heavy otaku would know.

          • DrForbidden
            • quodvadis

              From video game side, the only one that stands out is Cammy and Asuka, other than that most of them are actually the main male protagonists.

              But hey, can’t let that stop people from bitch bitch bitch-ing.

              • DrForbidden

                He didn’t say it’s specifically a video game thing.

                • quodvadis

                  Then he shouldn’t bitch about it in this article with the context being about a video game.

                  • DrForbidden

                    He specifically indicated Japanese pop culture and media in his original post. Video games are part of that, as are manga and anime. It’s obvious you’re just looking for excuses to deride him, so I’m gonna go now.

    • quodvadis

      Yep, she should like curry instead!

      • MrTyrant

        I miss Ciel.

    • FlareKnight

      I’m not sure what the issue is. A lot of people in NA are stupid over cats. Have you seen youtube?

      What’s the issue for a character in an RPG basically having the same interests as actual people?

      • MrTyrant

        Its not what people in real life is, the problem is how is used as a trigger, as the situation to see the cold and serious character to act….weak or childish. Dont you get tired that harem stories the first thing that mc do is to see the main heroine naked to cause missunderstanding? that there is childhood friend that love him, that a his little sister does too, that there is blonde character 100% tsundere. Things like that.

        I was talking from MY OWN EXPERIENCE that I saw a lot of characters with similar traits.

        • Bumbayker

          Well you’ll just have to deal with since the Japanese love that trope and don’t seem to ever get tired of it. Quite honestly I don’t have a problem about it.

    • Kobracon

      Hmm…I don’t know enough about her but is she portrayed as cold and serious/tough?

  • ayanami-chan

    Best girl?

    • Budgiecat

      def least cringy one

      • Nitraion

        She will love you for sure…

      • DrForbidden

        You’re just biased cause she loves cats…

        • Budgiecat

          I actually posted that before I read the article lol

  • Psi-Star

    she looks hella fun to play as

  • Nitraion

    I always use melee attacker in star ocean games this one no exception because brawler type is fun to play

    • KOKAYI5

      I liked a like of Meracle’s moves and long combos but I couldn’t make her work moreso than my dream team of Edge, Faize/Arumat, Myuria and Remi/Lymle.

  • Skerj

    I’m actually surprised they uploaded an HD 60FPS video above all else.

    • KOKAYI5

      Yeah it look incredible.

  • Klaudkil

    Am i maybe being to sceptical but this looks like it will run solid 60fps?

    • miyamoto

      Not imposiburu

  • leadintea

    Look’s like Anne got Mirage’s Blazing Cannon skill.

    • Bumbayker

      Yup. It ate all the Reserve Rush slots too.


    Goddess, I’m gonna love this game. Anne is a must for one of my mains to play as.

    • MrJHound

      Anne or Fiore. How will I ever decide?
      Although you said she might have some moves new to the series, I feel like a saw some “Cliff” in some of her attacks.

      • KOKAYI5

        Hope 6 has a completely new skill list for the cast.

    • Trollzama

      She used Cliff’s Acrobatic thing, and Mirage’s secret skill(dont remenber the name), I can bet she has Sphere of Might and Might Hammer.
      For a completely new game, they are reusing way too much skills.

      • Bumbayker

        There’s nothing wrong of reusing them since its all set in the same universe. That was also done in SO3 and SO4 but no one complained about it. Remember that SO5 takes place before SO3 and Anne could likely be Cliff’s and Mirage’s predecessor and basis of their fighting style much like Fidel is Fayt’s.

      • KOKAYI5

        Yeah but it seems people have a few they do different and a few unique ones. Maybe 6 will be all new.

  • Pepperkeet

    Clearly she looks too “native’ish” so this has to be REMOVED ASAP!
    Scrub this game clean from anything that the west might find offensive!

    The fact that she has bewbs is offensive enough!

  • DrForbidden

    Kung fu waifu is best waifu.

    • miyamoto

      yup! I have two waifus in this game. Both green haired.

  • Vyse Legendaire


    • nekolife

      Tri-ace knows what quality is.

  • Bumbayker

    I hope we get a release date for the West before Japan’s release.

  • The Fabulous Wombat

    Shaping up to be a fun game, although i dislike being in a party in my RPG’s, preffer to go on my adventures lone wolf style.

    • Tayusional

      im the complete opposite lmao, i get too nervous and bored being with just one character

  • OldManObelisk

    Best girl.

  • badmoogle

    I really like how colorful this game and its characters are.

  • Trinity

    I just wish they had 4 guys and 4 girls. : ×

  • Kobracon

    Now that battle looks good. Also the running joke with her appears to be her lost cat and her simple criteria for searching for it…. if anyone was interested in the opening dialogue

    Anne: Oh cat…..

    MC: You need help looking for your cat, Anne? What can you tell me about it?

    Anne: Its cute…

    MC: A little more detail would be nice..

    Anne: Its SUPER cute…

    MC……good luck with your search

  • LustEnvy

    I kind of expected her to have a lower voice and stoic nature. She’s ‘cuter’ than I expected.
