Makers of games like Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile among others, tri-Ace is one of the most well known developers in the JRPG scene. Earlier this week Japan based mobile business Nepro Japan announced their acquisition of the studio.

Nepro Japan is involved in smartphone sales and game development. With their acquisition of the immensely talented tri-Ace studio, they hope to improve the quality of their smartphone games.

We’re not sure what this means for the future of tri-Ace but this could result in the end of their console games. Here’s to hoping tri-Ace can come up with a proper Star Ocean successor on mobile, been a while since we got an instalment in the series.
