TOKYO RPG FACTORY ANNOUNCES SECOND ARTISAN TITLE “LOST SPHEAR”
Restore the World’s Memories Early 2018
LOS ANGELES (May 30, 2017) – Tokyo RPG Factory, the SQUARE ENIX® studio dedicated to creating games that blend Japanese role-playing games with the latest technology for a new generation of gamers, has announced their all-new title, LOST SPHEAR (read as “Lost Sphere”).

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.
