Square Enix is no stranger to Japanese RPGs, being the developers of the acclaimed Final Fantasy series and all. One of their lesser known series – Star Ocean – is a unique blend of action combat and traditional Japanese RPG mechanics. Today, the series debuts on the mobile platform with Star Ocean: Anamnesis!
Let’s bust out the dictionary for this one – the word “anamnesis” is a noun that refers to the recalling of a memory. That is pretty fitting for this game, as Star Ocean: Anamnesis puts you in the shoes of a newly appointed commander of a galactic ship. You will recruit heroes from the series’ past, including heroes from the very first Star Ocean game!
Real-time 3D combat awaits you in Star Ocean: Anamnesis. True to its original games, Anamnesis’ combat plays out in real-time with fast and franctic action. Time your attacks, string together combo moves, dodge enemy retaliation, and cast powerful abilities to decimate your foes!
And, as always, Square Enix delivers on the graphical front with Star Ocean: Anamnesis. This game will push your devices to the limit with its beautiful HD graphics, highly detailed character renders, and expansive environments.
The single-player campaign will take you across the galaxy as you search for the best heroes. If you are looking for more of a challenge, Anamnesis also offers a robust multiplayer mode that will let you team up with other players to take on challenging boss battles.
Star Ocean: Anamnesis is a free-to-play game with the expected “gacha” style system of summoning new heroes. Of course, there is a lot of freebies for strictly free players so it is fair to everyone.
