One week after making its debut in Japan, publisher Square Enix has locked down the western release date for hotly-anticipated JRPG sequel, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.
Slated to hit North American and Europe on June 28 and July 1, respectively, Integrity and Faithlessness is releasing during the franchise’s 20th anniversary. But don’t let that sprawling history ward you off, Square notes that “you don’t have to play the previous games to enjoy the story of this one. It’s not like watching the third movie in a trilogy without watching the first two — you won’t get lost.”
Opening up the option of switching between the dubbed English voices and original Japanese ones, fans will be pleased to note that a Day One Edition and Collector’s Edition are available to pre-order. The details of which can be found below.
