Check Out Star Ocean The Second Story R’s Opening Movie

Square Enix has revealed the opening movie for Star Ocean The Second Story R at Anime Impulse.

The opening movie is from artist Suiren, a Japanese duo featuring Sui on vocals and keyboardist Ren. The two have been together for 2020, appearing mainly on YouTube. They’ve provided the music for Star Ocean The Second Story R’s opening movie theme, Stella.

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.
