Star Ocean The Second Story R Haniel

Star Ocean The Second Story R Reveals Haniel, One Of The Ten Wise Men

Square Enix is nearing the halfway mark of introducing the Ten Wise Men to players in Star Ocean The Second Story R. Today, we’re introduced to Haniel, one of the group’s leaders.

Haniel’s introduction leads to one of the more intimidating battles against the Ten Wise Men as he is paired with massively influential skills.

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.”
