NIS America has released a new English trailer for its upcoming Japanese role-playing title, The Lost Child. Set in modern-day Tokyo, The Lost Child was announced for a Western release on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in September of last year.

The publisher has also revealed a Limited Edition of the game on PS4 which, in addition to the game itself, includes the soundtrack on CD, a hardcover art book, and collector’s box. This edition is currently available for pre-order on both the publisher’s North American and European online stores for $59.99 and £59.99 respectively. The Vita edition will only be available in digital form.

What exactly is the game about, we hear you ask? Well, here’s NIS America’s blurb to whet your appetite:

“Occult journalist Hayato Ibuki encounters a strange girl during his investigations into a series of mysterious suicides in Tokyo. She implores that Hayato must live, before bestowing upon him a mystical device that allows him to capture celestial and arcane creatures. He is now thrust into a world beyond our own, home to horrific monsters and celestial beings. In it, he must delve into dungeons called Layers and solve the mystery of the device. Where his journey leads him could decide the fate of our world...”
