Sea of Stars
If you're a fan of classic RPGs with a modern twist, check out Sea of Stars. This prequel to The Messenger follows the story of two Children of the Solstice – a Lunar Monk and a Solar Blade Dancer.

The game also features music by Yasunori Mitsuda, known for composing music for many classic RPGs. Sea of Stars launches on August 29, with pre-orders now available.
