Have I Am Setsuna made you miss the feel of an old school and classic JRPG? Do you want more of that kind of game in this modern world? If you really want more classic JRPG, then Square Enix has something that you’ve been waiting for! They are announcing a new game with pretty much the same feel like I Am Setsuna! The name’s Lost Sphear, and it has interesting plot.
Here is the synopsis provided by Square Enix.
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.
Expanding upon the beloved features from their debut title, I Am Setsuna™, LOST SPHEAR features an enhanced gameplay system with a revamped ATB battle system where players can strategize and freely adjust their placement mid-fight, seamless environments, and various locations to explore.
A game with a classic vibe like I Am Setsuna, and enchanced features. Lost Sphear is developed by Tokyo RPG Factory. They will release it digitally for PC (on Steam), Playstation 4 (on PlayStation Store), and Nintendo Switch (on Nintendo eShop) for the price of $49.99. Additionally Square Enix is offering physical release just for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch with pre-order bonus consisting of two music tracks by Tomoki Miyoshi (‘Town’s Theme #1’ and ‘Town’s Theme #2’).
