A logo for Star Ocean: The Second Story R has leaked via Square Enix’s support website.
Spotted by RPG Site, the banner with the logo was found on Square Enix’s official support site, but it has since been taken down. The link that leads to the logo now shows a box with the words “no image".
Star Ocean: The Second Story is the second game in developer Tri-Ace’s Star Ocean series, which is published by Square Enix. The game was released for the original PlayStation in 1998. An enhanced version of the game, Star Ocean: Second Evolution, was released in 2008 for PlayStation Portable.

In 2008, Square Enix remastered the first game in the series for PlayStation Portable, called Star Ocean: First Departure. In 2019, the game was re-released for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch as Star Ocean: First Departure R.
The latest game in the series is Star Ocean: The Divine Force, which is the sixth mainline title. In IGN’s Star Ocean: The Divine Force review, we said: “Star Ocean: The Divine Force isn’t the best in the series, but a revamped battle system and a charming cast of characters at least make it feel like a return to form.”
