Lost Sphear is the latest game from the makers of I Am Setsuna for Switch, PS4 and PC

Square Enix has today announced Lost Sphear, the latest title from Tokyo RPG Factory, makers of the popular small-scale Japanese RPG I Am Setsuna

I Am Setsuna proved a cult hit, with fans of the JRPG genre appreciating its Chrono Trigger inspired approach to gameplay and combat. Square Enix, who funded the title and helped to set up the Tokyo RPG Factory studio, no doubt also appreciated the fact the game was produced on a relatively modest budget compared to many large-scale Japanese RPGs today.

Lost Sphear (pronounced Lost Sphere) aims to expand on the features laid out in I Am Setsuna with a "revamped ATB battle system" and "seamless environments". In a big touch that'll please many, it already seems to have a variety of environment types where I Am Setsuna was limited to snow-capped areas.

Lost Sphear will launch for PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch in early 2018. The PC release will be via Steam. Here's Square Enix's synopsis:

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

The game will be available digitally, while an exclusive boxed version will be sold via Square Enix's official online store fronts for PS4 and Switch. Check out the first trailer, artwork and screenshots of the game for yourself below.
