Remember the teaser website posted by publisher Square Enix?

We thought the mystery title would be revealed on Monday but as it turns out, they just dropped another hint.

If you click through the link above, you can see that it now says "Star" and what might be a partial release date. Some have theorized that this could indicate the return of the legendary Star Ocean role-playing franchise, while others say they see the word "Start" instead of "star," given the positioning of the letters.

The last title we saw was Star Ocean: The Last Hope International , which launched over 5 years ago. Perhaps this really will be the return of the series; it did boast a hybrid real-time/turn-based battle system and some big open worlds, so perhaps it fits in with the current trends.

Guess we'll have to wait and see what Square Enix has in store…

I hope it's true but they did say the last one would be the last one. Though that doesn't count for much these days.

A good Star Ocean would feel more like a proper jrpg than anything else these days.

I doubt it, Tri-ace owns and make Star Ocean, but Tri-ace was bought up by some other company. And the creator reportedly wanted to make Star Ocean The last hope my erotic. so… chances of it being star ocean are low as hell. but maybe we can see one more if Tri-ace was already making it.

Update, it is Star Ocean, so this could be a really awesome game, or a really weird game.

The one and only Star Ocean that I've played was Till The End of Time and man I loved it. Had around 250 hours in it.

I hope this is a Star Ocean game. I loved Star ocean 2 and 3 so much. I still need to get around to playing 4 one day although it is a prequel so I know I wont be missing to much in terms of story.

I also have to play Xillia at some point.
