Star Ocean The Second Story R Reveals Chisato

As we head toward a full cast reveal, Chisato Madison is the next character we meet in Star Ocean The Second Story R.

Chisato is another late-game recruit that can be added to your party by either Claude or Rena. She’s a reporter chasing a scoop, and requests help from the party to find the truth about the world’s current situation. Chisato is also an adept brawler but won’t shy away from using a pistol to protect herself in battle.

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.
