Tokyo RPG Factory – the team behind I Am Setsuna – has announced a new RPG it’s working on (to be published by Square Enix) called Lost Sphear, to be released in early 2018.
The game is coming out on PlayStation 4, the Switch, and PC, and looks to play like a traditional party-based RPG, but there’s an extra sense of mystery to protagonist Kanata’s quest. With his hometown disappearing, Kanata and his companions must rebuild the world as they battle foes and explore the various locales.
The developer says the title’s gameplay will build off of I Am Setsuna, including being able to adjust characters’ placement during a fight.
Judging by Joe’s review of I Am Setsuna, hopefully Tokyo RPG Factory can continue to develop its own voice within the genre – apart from giving us a new way to spell “sphere.”
