Star Ocean The Second Story R Reveals Opera Vectra

Square Enix has revealed a new look at Opera Vectra in Star Ocean The Second Story R, an alien who’s arrived on Expel looking for someone important to her.

Meeting Claude in Hilton, Opera is seeking out Ernest, who she’s been searching for since crash landing on Expel. It isn’t long after meeting Claude and Rena that Opera decides to join, but in a twist, you can choose Ashton or Opera to recruit to your party.

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.
