It’s always a big deal for the RPG world when Square Enix announces a new game, and they have done so today, with the announcement of Lost Sphear, developed by the Tokyo RPG Factory who created the acclaimed I Am Setsuna. The game will launch for the PS4, PC and Switch in early 2018, at a 49.99 USD launch price. They released an announcement trailer which you can watch below:
The adventure of LOST SPHEAR begins in a remote town where a young boy, Kanata, awakens from a devastating dream to find his hometown disappearing. To stop the world from being lost forever, Kanata and his comrades set out to rebuild the world around them with the power of Memory by manifesting thoughts into matter.
The game will build on the gameplay system of I Am Setsuna (which we tabbed as one of our Top 5 RPGs: March) with a revamped ATB battle system that allows players to strategize and adjust mid-fight. The game will feature seamless environments and various locations to explore. You can check out a lovely assortment of new screenshots below:
Lost Sphear will be available both digitally and physical, which can be pre-ordered exclusively from the Square Enix online store for the PS4 and Switch versions. Pre-orders will receive 2 music tracks as a launch day bonus. Thoughts on the new game? Let us know in the comments. Elsewhere in Square Enix land, Final Fantasy XV is giving players a chance to choose some of the future DLC.
