Gunter

  • CV: Hiroshi Tsuchida
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 26
  • Weapon: Fists
  • Origin: Sortevue, Kingdom of Resulia, Planet Faykreed

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

One of Victor’s subordinates who belongs to an elite group of soldiers in the Central Resulian Army called the King’s Chosen.. 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.

Hana

  • CV: Hana Takeda
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 22
  • Weapon: Staff
  • Origin Roansac, Kingdom of Langdauq, Planet Faykreed

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Despite being only 22, she is one of Victor’s subordinates who belongs to an elite group of soldiers in the Central Resulian Army called the King’s Chosen. 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.)

Daks

  • CV: Tokuyoshi Kawashima
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 40
  • Weapon: Bow gun
  • Origin: Northern Territory of Sohma, Kingdom of Resulia, Planet Faykreed

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Belongs to the King’s Chosen 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 Daks determines the success or failure of their operations, this is no exaggeration, as Daks is the team’s important intelligence member. He is a silent character who does not often speak unless necessary.

■ Battle

Relia’s Mysterious Power

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

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

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

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.

■ Dungeons

Northern Territory of Sohma

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

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 Tunnel

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

An old, now abandoned tunnel 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: 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. In Japan, the game will also be available in an “Ultimate Box” edition.
