Star Ocean: Material Trader is a card-based social RPG based on Square’s sci-fi series. It’s currently in the works for Android and iOS.

Reported by Gamer and translated by Siliconera, the game will launch on GREE and see players collecting character and item cards from the Star Ocean universe and will be helmed by series producer Yoshinori Yamagishi.

The game sees your adventurer heading out into the cosmos in search of “Star Shards”, while collecting cards that will help you overcome battles and other perils. You can also craft items to buff low-level cards.

Star Ocean: Material Trader will launch on both mobile formats this year and is in development at Square’s mobile studio Hippos Lab.

We’ll have more as it comes.
