Star Ocean V is a thing and it’s coming. Sadly, Square Enix hasn’t seen it fit to offer the announcement trailer in English for Western fans of the series. Fear not; that’s why I’m here.

Star Ocean V: Integrity and Faithlessness, the fifth installment of the main Star Ocean series will take place between Star Ocean 2 and Star Ocean 3. According to developers, where the series has always mixed science fiction and fantasy elements together, Star Ocean V supposedly looks to be take a step back from the futuristic technological-heavy atmosphere of the previous game to a more mystical fantasy-heavy world.

Check out the previously released trailer for the game below, but this time with handy English subtitles.

Star Ocean V: Integrity and Faithlessness is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 and 4 at an unspecified date in the future. Probably before we actually develop interstellar travel.
