Square Enix has unveiled the release date of the turn-based RPG Lost Sphear, the new creation of their Tokyo RPG Factory studio, which is responsible of I Am Setsuna. While the new game is not a sequel to Setsuna, it can be considered a spiritual successor, as it follows the same principles of presenting an adventure close in style to the most classic RPGs.
In a world that is disappearing to the destructive force of the ‘Lost,’ a young man named Kanata acquires the power of Memory, which is seen as the only thing that can give hope to the people. Kanata is joined by a group of friends in his quest, each with their own special abilities and combat style. For example, the priestess Sherra uses a traditional bow and healing magic, and the mysterious Obaro is able to throw powerful elemental spells. Players can also make use of a kind of mechanical armor that they can find around the world. It is called Vulcosuit and each collective part has its own skills that can be used in battle or while exploring.
Square Enix is offering those who preorder the game some extras like a dynamic theme and two music tracks for PS4, and a wallpaper and two music tracks for Steam. Additionally, a physical edition of the game for PS4 and Nintendo Switch will be available to purchase through Square Enix’s Online Store.
Lost Sphear launches on January 23 on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
