Handkerchiefs at the ready: Square Enix’s Tokyo RPG Factory has another twee tale to regale involving fallen fathers and vanishing mothers. Lost Sphear is the next game from the creators of I Am Setsuna, set for release in early 2018 on the PlayStation 4. The game will build upon the battle system from the aforementioned title, and to be honest the art style looks similar, too.

The story will see you assume the role of Kanata, a young boy who discovers that his home world is disappearing. You’ll need to recruit party members, head out in search of the truth, and basically do all of the things that tend to occur in old-school RPG titles.

The game will be available from the PlayStation Store, though a limited number of physical copies will be sold on Square Enix’s official website. So yeah, we’re sure more trailers will be released in the months leading up to release, but for now you’ll have to make do with the reveal one embedded at the top of this article.
