The Lost Child Confirmed for Switch

Upcoming monster-raising RPG The Lost Child will release on the Nintendo Switch alongside other versions.

Publisher NIS America has announced that their upcoming RPG, The Lost Child, will launch on Nintendo Switch in addition to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game. Similar to the PlayStation 4 version, the Nintendo Switch version will have both a physical and digital release.

The Western release for The Lost Child was previously announced during NIS America's livestream press event earlier this month. The game will have players take on the role of occult journalist Hayato Ibuki, who is given a strange device which allows him to command various creatures known as Astrals. Hayato's journey will take him through dungeons called layers where he will seek his destiny and possibly decide the fate of the world. 

The Lost Child will launch Summer 2018 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch. A limited-edition version of the game is also available for pre-order through NIS America's website.
