Fly Around Areas Freely

In Star Ocean: The Divine Force, characters can freely move in 360° degrees and roam the skies.

Move and Explore Freely in Three Dimensions: Everything You See Can Be Explored!

You can move in three dimensions whilst flying around the largest environment ever.

Whether you’re flying around and exploring rockfaces and roofs of buildings in the city, or leaping off cliffs to seamlessly enter battles, you’ll have more freedom in terms of both adventuring and battling.

The Fastest and Strongest Action of Any in the Series

While the game will give you space to play as you please, the scope of its battles has also evolved.

Characters can subdue a large number of enemies with super high-speed movement attacks, special abilities where you can vanish for a brief moment from right in front of your enemies’ eyes, and a skill which could kill in one hit!

This game will feature a challenging yet thrilling battle experience to enjoy while freely soaring in the skies.

Sooner than I expected. I worry over the series, what were in my view generational limitation for Star Ocean End of Time worked it in's favour for it's style. The next game while looking good I just couldn't get through due to the voice acting alone and sound production. I&F just didn't feel all that fleshed out and I didn't finish that either. Hoping this can recapture the feel of the PS1 and PS2 titles.

I've only played the last hope from this series. I thought the combat was really great but man the story wasn't just bad it was getting annoying with the MC's constant crying.

Same here. The Last Hope was the only one I played... And the voice acting was just terrible, the voice didn't even line up to the speaking animations.

...But I actually did enjoy the combat and exploration, got up to the last area... And yeah. Difficulty cliff and couldn't progress any further so shelved it.

Not sure this series gets the budget it needs to do it justice.

A shame nobody creates threads for these, I suppose I am partially to blame for not making it either. I don't really want to move to article comments, but here I am :).

Either way, this game will be bought for sure, maybe it will be my 7th JRPG of the year after Disgaea 6 or 8th JRPG of the year after Star Ocean I &F.
