The official website of Square Enix and tri-Ace's Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness role-playing game began streaming the "final trailer" for the game on Tuesday. The video previews the game's characters, as well as the game's theme song "Astra Nova" by androp.
The game originally had a February 25 release date, but Square Enix delayed the game to March 31 to improve the game's quality.

Square Enix describes the game:
STAR OCEAN, the epic, sci-fi RPG saga that takes players to the stars and beyond, makes its triumphant return with its forthcoming fifth installment in the series. The title is developed by tri-Ace, the celebrated studio behind each of the previous iterations, with character designs by akiman (Akira Yasuda).
At this point in history, between the second and third games in the series, the Pangalactic Federation is nearing the fulfilment of its mission: Peace and order throughout the galaxy. However, the embers of conflict begin to stir once more on the planet of Faykreed, 6,000 light years from Earth, as a new story begins in the ocean of stars.
Square Enix will release the game in Japan on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan, and in North America and Europe on the PlayStation 4 in 2016. Square Enix did not announce a PS3 version for the game's Western release.
