Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is the fifth main installment in the Star Ocean action RPG franchise by tri-Ace. The sci-fi themed game features character designs by akiman (Akira Yasuda), notable for his work on Street Fighter and other successful series. It is published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4 consoles in the West (only Japan gets a PS3 release).

Chronologically, the upcoming title takes place between the second and the third installments (Star Ocean: The Second Story and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time.) New features include seamless transitions into battles and events, and an increase to party size which can now have up to 7 characters. Familiar mechanics such as Private Actions or Item Creation will also be making a return, with some changes.
