One of the most robust and formidable members of the Ten Wise Men is Jophiel, a man capable of mass destruction. His story is fleshed out in Star Ocean The Second Story R and showcases his role within the group.
Jophiel – A weapon designed for long-range battles in #StarOcean The Second Story R.
Jophiel is met near the halfway section of the main campaign and quickly becomes a nuisance for Claude and the group. His speed is what makes him formidable 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.
For those downloading the demo, progress carries over to the full game. From Square Enix’s Blog, “Everything you earn, including story progress, items, Battle Points (BP) and Skill Points (SP) used to strengthen character skills, will also be transferred into the full game. And while you can’t earn trophies or achievements in the demo, they’ll unlock when you import your demo save data to the full game.”
