The highly anticipated RPG Sea of Stars has been a long time coming. Sea of Stars, which was first revealed in 2020 as a prequel to the well-received game The Messenger, now has an official release date. It was expected to be released in 2023, but after months of anticipation, the February Nintendo Direct stunned fans with an actual date.
When will Sea of Stars be released?
Sea of Stars, developed by Sabotage Studio, will be released on August 29. The news came at the end of a teaser previewing the next RPG’s gameplay. It’s been a bumpy path for the small firm, since the game was delayed twice from its intended release date. Sea of Stars had been set to debut “Holiday 2022” after being highlighted in Nintendo’s December 2021 Indie World presentation.
Fans awaited additional information about a certain release date, but it never arrived. Instead, Sea of Stars was postponed once more, this time until the summer of 2022. Sabotage Studios then stated on Twitter that Sea of Stars’ release date has been pushed back to 2023. The studio then confirmed the official release date, which we now know, more than six months later.
What exactly is Sea of Stars?
Sea of Stars draws heavily on classic JRPGs like Chrono Trigger. The game has brilliantly produced, vintage, pixeled visuals as well as a unique lighting system that plays an important role in the tale. Sea of Stars looks and plays like a throwback to old JRPGs, and it’s a love letter to the genre. Yasunori Mitsuda, composer for Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, and the Xeno series, contributes to the iconic vibe.
Sea of Stars will be released on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC through Steam – no news on an Xbox release, but that doesn’t rule it out. While we wait for August 29, you may play a Sea of Stars demo right now. We also got down with the devs last year for a preview of the game, which included conversations with the team about how the game was created.
