Star Ocean developer tri-Ace has posted a job opening for a new action RPG. They are recruiting staff for this brand new project.
CGWorld Japan had posted a job opening from Star Ocean/Valkyrie Profile developer tri-Ace. This opening suggests that they are looking for someone to work on a future action RPG. The two key points mentioned are “emphasis on game systems” and “high-quality visual expression”.
Here’s a look at the job description that was shared by tri-Ace.
We are now hiring 3D Effect Designers and Motion Designers!
tri-Ace has worked on many famous titles including “Star Ocean” and “Valkyrie Profile” in its 25 years of development experience.
Our focus is on game systems, high quality visual expression, and unshakable concepts. Our commitment is realized by our creators such as programmers, artists, game designers (planning), etc., through their unconventional enthusiasm and fulfilling development environment.
Just to keep expectations in check, this could be a mobile game instead of a full-blown console title, but the last mobile game from tri-Ace was Star Ocean: Anamnesis that was released back in 2016, so it has been quite a while since they have worked on one.
Since the release of Star Ocean: Anamnesis, tri-Ace has mostly worked on ports with Square Enix including Star Ocean: The Last Hope 4K HD Remaster, Resonance of Fate 4K HD Remaster, and Star Ocean: First Departure R.
