Get the information below.

■ Characters

Pavine

  • CV: Setsuji Sato
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 29
  • Origin: Kronos Star System

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

An officer in Kronos, a power that opposes the Galactic Federation. He has a short temper, and is a “muscle brain” type unable to work out a strategy before solving any problem with violence.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

He often stands before Fidel and company in attempts to kidnap Relia. What is his true motive for targeting her…?

■ Dungeons

Ikyaku Cathedral

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

By touching a jet black gate that suddenly appears on the field, you’ll jump to a mysterious cathedral dungeon. You’ll take on several battles and find a number of treasure chests before you get to the dungeon’s boss. There are also rare weapons and items you can obtain only once.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Once you move forward into the dungeon, you cannot escape until you complete it, but you can leave the dungeon by touching the starting point gate.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Compared to the dungeons you visit in the second half of the story, the frequency of battles and difficulty in the cathedral are naturally going to increase. You’ll obtain items by defeating the boss, and perhaps even more rare things…?

■ Quests

Players can take on quests from clients to earn rewards by examining “Quest Bulletin Boards” located throughout the game’s various towns. There are various types of quests, including finding people, collecting materials, and defeating enemies. Potential rewards include Skill Books and other rare items.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

When you visit Welch’s house in Myiddok, a quest request will begin. When you complete Welch’s request, one part of item creation and your party skills will be unlocked.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Quest Bulletin Boards are present all over, each with different requests.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

When you take on an enemy subjugation quest, enemies that don’t usually appear on the field will appear in the place outlined in the request.

■ Private Actions

Both in towns and on the field, players can enjoy a variety of interactions with characters through Private Actions.

Miki is a mother figure to Relia. Relia also seems to have a lot of love for Miki. They make a cake and even seem to bathe together. Through Private Events, you’ll get a glimpse at some joyful situations.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan on March 31 and PlayStation 3 on April 28, and for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in 2016. In Japan, the game will also be available in an “Ultimate Box” edition.
