Sabotage Studio's highly anticipated turn-based RPG, Sea of Stars, will be launching physically in Japan on December 7, 2023, thanks to a partnership with publisher Kakehashi Games. Pre-orders for the game have started, and those who pre-order will receive a bonus sticker sheet and an original soundtrack CD. Additionally, first-print copies of the game will include an exclusive art card.
It's important to note that this physical release is currently only confirmed for Japan. However, iam8bit has announced that they will be handling the physical release of Sea of Stars for PlayStation 5, Xbox, and Switch consoles in early 2024. The box art for the Japanese release has also been unveiled.
Sea of Stars is already available digitally on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. The game can also be enjoyed through Game Pass and the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog. Furthermore, it has been verified to be compatible with the Steam Deck handheld gaming device.
Sea of Stars follows the journey of two heroic characters, Valere and Zale, who possess the power of the Sun and Moon. As Solstice Warriors, they must use their Eclipse Magic to battle against The Fleshmancer, an evil alchemist. The game features a turn-based RPG combat system where players control a party of six characters. Unlike traditional RPGs, Sea of Stars doesn't rely on level grinding for character progression. Instead, players unlock new skills as they progress through the game.
The release of Sea of Stars has already gained significant attention, with the game reportedly selling over 100,000 units within its first day of availability. Fans of turn-based RPGs and those who appreciate visually stunning games will have much to look forward to when Sea of Stars hits store shelves.
