Star Ocean The Second Story R is Now Available

Square Enix has announced that Star Ocean The Second Story R, the 2.5D remake of the highly acclaimed second installment in the series, is now available for PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC.

Here’s an overview of Star Ocean The Second Story R:

Claude C. Kenny, a young officer in the Pangalactic Federation, is sent to investigate a mysterious dome discovered on Planet Milokeenia on the orders of Ronyx, his father and commanding officer. 

There he discovers an unfamiliar-looking mechanism. Hoping to demonstrate his courage, he ignores Ronyx’s objections and touches it, only to disappear in a blinding flash. 

Later, Claude wakes up surrounded by lush forest and realizes he’s been transported somewhere far away. 

Trying and failing to get in contact with Ronyx, Claude scouts out the area around him, only to discover a monster just as it’s about to attack a young girl. 

Rushing into the fray, Claude fires away with the Phase Gun his father gave him. 

Seeing Claude rescue her with this bright, lethal force, the girl—Rena Lanford—mistakes him for a figure from the myths of her homeland, a hero who bears a Sword of Light. 

In order to properly thank him, Rena takes Claude to the village of Arlia, hoping against hope that he could be the one to save the entire nation…
