At E3, information was given on Tokyo RPG Factory’s new game, Lost Sphear, but it left everyone wondering when they’ll be able to play the promising title. Today, Lost Sphear has a release date, and it’s not that far away. The spiritual successor to I Am Setsuna will come to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on January 23, 2018.

The story will follow a young man who must awaken the power of Memory to restore what was lost and combat an ominous power that threatens the fabric of reality.

The trailer can be seen below. If the ambiguous story line doesn’t immediately jump off the page, one thing is for certain; if Tokyo RPG Factory’s next title is anything like I Am Setsuna, it will be oozing with charm, character, and originality.

Looking a little deeper, some deviations from I Am Setsuna are apparent. The various terrain and landscapes are a welcomed addition compared to the never ending winter of I Am Setsuna.

There’s also the addition of “Vulcosuit’s”, which are mech-like armors that can be acquired throughout Lost Sphear.Each of these suits will be equipped with its own set of unique abilities, used both in battle and within the environments.
