Square-Enix countdown site teases Star Ocean 5?!
Square-Enix has launched a new teaser site, complete with countdown. The cryptic site has a bold space theme with the words 'STAR', "EPIC", "BORDER", "WAR", "GALAXY", "DIVIDE", "AMBITION" on the right side of the page.
The countdown clock points to a reveal on 12/12/2012 in Japan, which due to Time Zone differences, will be late Tuesday for North America. As the clock counts down, more word clues have been revealed on the page. Most people seem to agree that this certainly looks like a teaser for a new Star Ocean game. Developed by tri-Ace, the Space-themed RPG franchise has been a fan favorite since its debut on Super Famicom in Japan and PS1 in North America.
The last game released in the franchise, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, was released back in 2009 for Xbox 360, and an enhanced PS3 International version a year later in 2010. A new entry in the series could definitely be a possibility at this point.
