■ Battle System

Combo Bonus and Cancel Bonus

By increasing the number of hits towards the enemy in a combo attack, you’ll trigger a Reserve Gauge-increasing “Combo Bonus.” By letting out standard attacks and battle skills consecutively with good timing and successfully using Cancels to shorten their execution window, you’ll get an attack power-increasing “Cancel Boost.”

—Combo Bonus

For every 10 hits in a combo, you’ll get a +20 percent Combo Bonus increasing the Reserve Gauge. The maximum bonus is +300 percent at 100 hits.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

—Cancel Bonus

For every Cancel, you’ll get the +25 percent strength. The maximum is +200 percent at eight Cancels.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Reserve Rush System

—Reserve Rush Type

In the settings, you can choose to set whether the controlled character triggers a Reserve Rush, or whether the character that triggers it is different from the controlled character. Choose whichever setting best fits your combat style to employ it effectively.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

—Reserve Gage Amount of Consumption

When the Reserve Gauge is at two or more stocks, you can use that amount at will towards the Reserve Rush. You can have a maximum of five stocks in your Reserve Gauge. Since your attack power and effects fluctuate based on the Reserve Gauge amount of consumption, you should decide whether you want to use it all at once, use it properly for each character, and so on based on the state of battle.
