Star Ocean 2: The Second Story R Review w/ Jada Griffen
Did you know Tri-Ace was founded when the members of Wolf Team developing Tales of Phantasia grew tired of Namco’s involvement and split off to create their own studio in the middle of development? And then in 2019 the mobile game Star Ocean: Anamnesis featured a crossover event with Tales, bridging the two series after nearly a quarter-century. Anyway this episode is all about the new remake of Star Ocean 2 with special guest Jada Griffen! George Yang is also supposed to be here but the best laid plans of mice and men etc.
Luckily it’s still a great discussion about Star Ocean’s place in the genre and beyond!
