The Star Ocean series is a classic action RPG series that was first developed by tri-Ace and published by Square Enix. The series made dramatic steps forward within the RPG genre with new mechanics, such as allowing the player to alter the story’s course through actions and dialogue. With numerous accolades and titles in the series, you may be wondering about the Star Ocean timeline.

All Star Ocean Games in Release Order

The Star Ocean series began in 1996, with the first title in the series released for the Famicon in Japan. Since then, the series has been expanded with numerous sequels, the newest being Star Ocean: The Divine Force. Here are all Star Ocean games in order of release date.

  • Star Ocean – 1996

All Star Ocean Games in Chronological Order

One thing to note is that the Star Ocean timeline does not necessarily follow the release order. There are numerous remakes in the series, and some titles occur in-game before others. We have excluded some titles as they are either remakes or spin-offs and not crucial to the story. Here is how to play the main Star Ocean games chronologically in the in-game universe.

  • Star Ocean: The Last Hope
  • Star Ocean/Star Ocean: First Departure
  • Star Ocean: The Second Story/Star Ocean: Second Evolution
  • Star Ocean: Blue Sphere
