Star Ocean The Second Story R Reveals Noel

Square Enix’s latest batch of Star Ocean The Second Story R reveals includes Noel Chandler, a skilled symbologist that you can meet and recruit

Noel is a late-game recruit without delving into spoilers, but he’s available in Claude and Rena’s story path. He’s also an adept symbologist user and can come through in a pinch during battle, so Noel is a viable candidate.

Alongside a complete graphical overhaul, Star Ocean The Second Story R is getting new music from Motoi Sakuraba, an updated Japanese dub, and new battle mechanics.

As either Claude C. Kenny or Rena Lanford, you’ll embark on an adventure on the planet of Expel. Their paths cross when Claude is transported to Expel by a mysterious device and meets Rena, who believes he is the legendary hero of light. Together, they journey to save Expel from a cosmic threat known as the Sorcery Globe.

It was initially released for the PlayStation in 1998 and remastered for the PSP as Star Ocean: Second Evolution in 2008.

Star Ocean The Second Story R launches on Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC on November 2, 2023.
