tri-Ace, Incorporate hasn’t released a new game to the market since 2016, when it released Integrity & Faithlessness.
The last video game in the Star Ocean saga, Integrity and Faithlessnes, may not leave a great taste in your mouth, but now, and after a couple of remasters along the way, those in charge seem ready to develop a new installment of the franchise, or at least one RPG new generation according to a job offer.
According to an ad translated into English by Gematsu, tri-Ace, Incorporated is currently searching for visual effects (VFX) artists. “Why not work with us to create new action RPGs with an exciting presentation, and of high quality, for the consoles of next generation? “, describes the message, adding that they will also create their own graphics engine to take advantage of the PS5 hardware.
The offer does not offer more details than those purely related to the vacancy in the Japanese company, so it could be related to a new title in the Star Ocean saga, another saga in which the company has worked, or a new IP.
What they remember since Gaming Bolt, tri-Ace, Incorporated has not worked on a new video game as such since 2016, when Star Ocean: Integrity & Faithlessness hit stores with a low-key reception from the trade press. In 3DJuegos we concluded that this new adventure did not live up to the legacy of this veteran Japanese role-playing franchise by failing in key aspects such as the plot, not very original and lacking the epic tone that you expect from this saga, or the combat system. If you want to know more, you can consult in the pages of the magazine the analysis of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness by comrade Alberto Pastor.
In addition to Star Ocean, tri-Ace has worked on other games in its 25-year history, including credits in Valkyrie Profile and Resonance of Fate for Enix and SEGA respectively. Now, it will be time to wait to know the entity of your next video game.
Returning to the Star Ocean saga, in 2017 a couple of remasters dedicated to the installments of Till the End of Time and The Last Hope hit stores.
