Distributor iam8bit and Sabotage Studio announced a physical edition of turn-based RPG Sea of Stars will release in early 2024. A promotional image was revealed by Sabotage Studio, and the developers shared more details about the physical release.
Sea of Stars is a new turn-based RPG that’s inspired by classic Japanese RPGs from the 90s such as Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy. In fact, Xenoblade Chronicles series composer Yasunori Mitsuda contributed to the soundtrack of Sea of Stars to give it an authentic feel. The new title releases next week digitally, and the physical release comes early next year.
