It’s for sure one the most anticipated game for JRPG fans thanks to its retro-styled look and its vibes from 90s classics. Sea of Stars by Sabotage Studio (devs behind The Messenger) is on the work, and a new video shows off a nice gameplay mechanic introduced into the battles called “locks”

Practically when enemies prepare for a special attack or a spell, they have various icons above them indicating different attack types. By attacking them with that attack, players will break locks and can weaken or completely cancel the enemy’s attack.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Sea of Stars will arrive in 2023 on PC via Steam, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
