Was looking for the Lost Sphear forum and couldn't find it. Guess I'll create one with the game just a few months out, and we have new footage to bask in 😁

There's a battle right away, then 2 minutes in you get to see the airship. I love it- the world is round and rotates as you air-sail...

The game will be digital only for $39.99, except for the Square Enix Online Store exclusive physical version which can be found here for $49.99

Personally, I feel like Tokyo RPG Factory learned a lot with their first game, I Am Setsuna and has really elevated this new game to another level. Pretty much all the complaints people had with I Am Setsuna seem to be addressed. It just looks fantastic.

Nice work with the video upload. I wasn't too sure about this, as the RPG scene on the Switch is about to become a lot more competitive with Xeno, Dragon Quest, Octopath, Skyrim, FFXV, Atelier and, eventually, Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem. That said, this looks kind of cool. I like that Tokyo RPG Factory aim for shorter, more focused campaigns. I can't handle too many 100-hour behemoths, no matter how much I love them.

Ya I'm really impressed with this game. It just looks really solid. Like Octopath Traveller, I think Lost Sphear will be a must-have traditional JRPG.

I have checked on playasia.com, the Japan version will be on October 2017. I guess it will be same case with I Am Setsuna (Multi language)

Idk, I can read the text from the YT video window running on my iPad, and it's gotta be about 4" window. I think it'll be fine on a 6" screen.

@Anti-Matter Try playing Xenoblade Chronicles X, it's basically a masterclass in reading small text

I preferred the visuals and setting of Setsuna but the story and characters were generic rubbish.
Hope they can improve it.
There's a serious lack of good story and characters in modern JRPGs.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

My immediate thought: "Bravely Default: Wild World". Wonder if in TV Mode, it turns into "Bravely Default: City Folk"

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

It does remind me of Bravely Default... only better. This is right up there with Octopath Traveller as 2 immaculate classic JRPG's coming to Switch. The world seems so much more interesting than I Am Setsuna,

I'm glad they're making a physical version too. I imported I Am Setsuna from Asia to get the English box art. And I want this to match.

Someone downloaded that demo yet? I wanna check it out, but that won't do me much good if it isn't one of those Japanese games that come with English text lol

What a beautiful signature.

LS will be a worthy successor to I Am Setsuna, but from playing both demos i'm under the impression Octopath Traveler will be way better.

Actually, i'm under the imression Octopath Traveler will be the best RPG in long time.

Okay, okay, okay... where are you guys downloading those demos, because neither game has one on the European nor Japanese eShop. Do I really have to make a third user now? lol

Ya they do. In fact Lost Sphear only has a demo on the JP eShop. Octopath Traveller is on all 3.

You have to look in the coming soon section

I LOVED I Am Setsuna. Fun but short little RPG.

Really looking forward to Lost Sphear.

But I gotta be honest - I've played both demos, and I think Octopath is gonna be better. I'm still going to buy Sphear for sure, but I like Octopath's aesthetics and battle system more.

Idk how i feel about this game.. I thought setsuna was going to be good.. I played a good bit of it but kind of got bored with it.. the graphics were just too plain.. like i don't think anything was bad in the game but nothing was really great about it.
Its just that every single aspect about the game was entirely mediocre.

I have no doubt this game is going to be better, but do i think it's going to be great? No, just better.

Here's a great mini review slash feedback piece from Reddit. This guy really feels the game is great, and superior to Setsuna.

Demo is live in all regions.

Just got done playing the demo and finishing it. I like this game. At first the battle system was confusing but after about 10 minutes everything clicked and I understood what I was doing. The demo ended on a cliffhanger of moral choice and setting up the story to come.

I like that. It has me invested in the game now.
