Star Ocean: Anamnesis is a 3D anime-themed mobile action RPG developed by the legendary Japanese studio tri-Ace.

Star Ocean: Anamnesis was created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Star Ocean series and features characters from all previous titles. The game boasts real-time combat and includes a large roster of heroes for players to collect. The global version was shut down in November 2019, leaving only the Japanese version still in service.
