Star Ocean The Second Story R Introduces Swordsman Dias Flac

Square Enix shared a new video for Star Ocean The Second Story R, this time focusing on Dias Flac, the wandering swordsman and childhood friend of Rena Lanford.

After leaving his village of Arlia, Dias begins exploring Expel and mastering his skills as a swordsman. As Star Ocean The Second Story R features characters locked to specific story routes, you can only recruit Dias if you select Rena as your starting character. In Claude’s route, you’ll encounter Dias at several critical story moments.

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.
