So far, a release of the successful via kickstarters funded retro JRPGs Sea of Stars only for PC, the Switch as well as PS4 and PS5 confirmed. Now the responsible developer, Sabotage Studio (The Messenger), in his new Kickstarter entry announced on March 15 that their role-playing game title will also be released for Microsoft’s Xbox consoles.
The studio commented on this as follows:
From the beginning we secretly hoped that we would be able to cover all current-gen consoles as well as the last generation of consoles. However, since the game production is like a roller coaster ride, we had to limit ourselves to “For PC and consoles” when announcing the platforms. We wanted to avoid having to row back a step. Now that the uncertainties are behind us, we are happy to be able to confirm the Xbox consoles for the release.
The developer also announced that the Sea of Stars demo, which was previously only available for the Switch console, will now also be made available for download on other publication platforms in the course of the year.
Sea of Stars is a turn-based RPG in the style of JPRG classics like Chrono Triggers and tells the story of two children of the solstice who possess the powers of the sun and the moon. With the help of the so-called “Eclipse Magic” you have to defeat the monstrous creatures of the evil alchemist “The Fleshmancer” and put an end to his evil doings. The current Sea of Stars trailer for the announcement of the Xbox release can be found directly under this news for retrieval.
According to the current release plan, Sea of Stars will be released on August 29, 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X and the switch.
