You might recognize someone in the trailer, too, as the main character’s mother is voiced by Suzie Yeung, who voices Yuffie in Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. The Japanese dub features the voice of Aoi Yūki, who has voiced characters in Persona 5, Genshin Impact, and more, and the Chinese voice-over is performed by Shandy Ma, who has appeared in more than 20,000 commercials and TV shows. 

“The Star Named EOS is a story-driven puzzle game centered on a love for photography and the pursuit of memory,” a press release reads. “As a child, Dei regularly received letters from his mother when she was traveling, each of which came enclosed with a memorable snapshot of the location she was visiting. But one day, Dei notices something peculiar about one of the photographs she left behind, putting everything he believes to the test. Now, guided by his mother’s voice deep within himself, it’s time for Dei to set out on his own to learn the truth about his family and confront the echoes of the past.”
