The ocean will flow into all consoles
Sabotage is bringing its upcoming RPG Sea of Stars to more platforms at launch. Today, the studio confirms that Sea of Stars will head to Xbox consoles on August 29, the same day as it arrives for PC, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
This updated launch platform coverage includes both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, so both generations will be able to play the new adventure. There’s also a demo out, though it’s currently only available on the Nintendo eShop.
Sea of Stars sees two protagonists, the Children of the Solstice. With one wielding sun powers and the other moon, they combine to create Eclipse Magic, the only thing capable of stopping The Fleshmancer. It looks quite nostalgic, helped by the fact that Chrono Trigger‘s Yasunori Mitsuda is a specil guest composer on the soundtrack.
You’re a sea full of stars
This RPG is also the latest project from Sabotage, the studio behind 2018’s The Messenger. In that one, the team tackled a different kind of old-school genre in the action-platformer. Here, with Sea of Stars, they take on the classic turn-based RPG.
I played a little bit of the demo and found it intriguing, though I’m mostly holding off for the full game. I will say, I do really like the look that Sabotage has crafted for Sea of Stars so far. It’s a colorful world with some great little details. Now, Xbox players will also be able to see it for themselves at launch alongside other platforms.
Sea of Stars arrives on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Switch on August 29, 2023.
