Square Enix has confirmed that “Lost Sphear,” the upcoming title from Tokyo RPG Factory, will be available on PS4, Nintendo Switch and STEAM starting on January 23, 2018. This title is a little easier to get digitally, since the retail version is exclusive to the Square Enix Store, so hopefully it won’t be a very big install for console users.
The digital versions of the game are available to pre-order now from the PlayStation Store and STEAM, and pre-ordering comes with a few digital goodies. The publisher stated that players who pre-order on the PlayStation Store will receive a “Memoirs of the Moon” dynamic PlayStation 4 theme and two music tracks. Those who pre-order on STEAM will receive a custom LOST SPHEAR wallpaper and two music tracks.
“Lost Sphear” will be available digitally from the PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, and STEAM on release date. The game will also be available as a physical package exclusively from the Square Enix Online Store for the PlayStation 4 system and Nintendo Switch. Fans who pre-order the game from the Square Enix Online Store will receive two music tracks as a gift at launch. If you missed the game trailer released back in May, you can watch it below.
The game itself expands upon many of the beloved features from the studio’s debut title, “I am Setsuna,” and continues Tokyo RPG Factory’s dedication to blending the nostalgia of classic Japanese role-playing games with the latest technology for a new generation of gamers. The game will feature an enhanced gameplay system with a revamped ATB (Active Time Battle) system offering more freedom in combat, seamless environments, and various locations to explore.
In “Lost Sphear,” players will begin their adventure 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 and restoring what was lost.
