I was looking at some video game news and heard a rumor. Apparently “Star Ocean: The Second Story” is being remade. I do not know much about the Star Ocean series since I did not own a PlayStation growing up. That said something about the series did catch my eye… You guessed it! Catgirls!
In the Star Ocean franchise, there is a race known as the Fellpool. Most look like humans with tails and pointy ears. Others evolved from tigers and are stronger than normal. They are known as the Highlanders. Those closer to cats than humans are known as Lesser Fellpool… Sadly they are considered less intelligent and face discrimination.
My limited research did not find any noteworthy Lesser Fellpool in “The Second Story” but you can find them in the original Star Ocean and in “The Last Hope”. The original features Pericci who is described as innocent and naïve. “The Last Hope” has Meracle Chamlotte, a young and energetic catgirl who seems to have been misplaced. I have definitely seen art of Meracle over the years but Pericci did not ring a bell. Sadly, I did not grow up playing a lot of JRPGs. I guess this means I have some catching up to do.
So what do you think?
