Square Enix Announces Lost Sphear to be Released Early 2018
From the developers of I am Setsuna comes another modern JRPG fashioned in the vein of classic Square Enix JRPGs: Lost Sphear. Square announced the new Tokyo RPG Factory title yesterday, revealing the game's first trailer.
Lost Sphear begins in an isolated town that is starting to vanish, along with all the townspeople, setting a young boy named Kanata on a new adventure, as he and his companions quest to rebuild the world with the power of memory.
Accompanied by soft, somber music, the reveal trailer shows diverse environments, from a town covered in a thick, dark smog to a vibrant, lush outdoor area. The reveal trailer also provides a glimpse of the game's active time battle system. This battle system will allow players to strategically alter character placement mid-battle, among other things.
Lost Sphear pre-orders are now available at the Square Enix Store. The game will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in early 2018. A pre-order bonus includes two special soundtracks by the game's composer, Tomoki Miyoshi.
