View Full Version : Lost Sphear

Well well well. Now we know what Tokyo RPG Factory has been doing. Another traditional RPG that shares the area effect mechanics from Chrono Trigger and I Am Setsuna.

Coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Steam.

At least it's not a FFX rehash, and at least there's some variety in the world and it's not just constant snow. So I can say I'm more interested in this one. But I guess it'll probably depend if I'm in a digital mood or not. I skipped over Setsuna for lack of a physical copy (also the piano music I had heard grated my nerves and didn't help that I was told that that music all there is in the game)

I really enjoyed I am Setsuna because it was FFX done right, even if it did have some problems towards the end. So I'm pretty much on board for this game, though I was kind of hoping they would change-up the visual and gameplay mechanics a bit more. The game looks like more of a spiritual sequel to I am Setsuna which is not a bad thing, but there is so much variety to the "Golden Age" of the genre, that I was thinking they would be a bit more diverse.

Lost Sphear? Sounds like a spelling mistake.

I don't think Sphear is a real word. I'm getting a red line underneath it.

A lot of people on the net feel like the game doesn't look like it should be worth $50. How do y'all feel about it? I wasn't paying much attention during the trailer apparently because I didn't even notice that. I can understand that perspective. The game does look like it has a limited budget, like some unknown game you'd find on Steam.

Yeah, while I can't find a good reason to disagree with the price tag, I'd honestly feel a little weird paying that much for a game that looks the way it does. If I remember correctly, Setsuna was $10 cheaper at launch

I was greeted by this trailer when I got up this morning and it looks interesting, but I also haven't even played I Am Setsuna yet. Before that I still need to finish my Dragon Quest games. This is not a good period in my life for RPGs. :ohdear:

Well, it does constantly say "development footage, subject to change", so it might not be the final visuals of the game.

Although I didn't realize we had a price yet.

Apparently the Switch will be getting a physical release for those deterred by digital. And those with a Switch.

It looks cute, but I hope it finds a way to differentiate itself. I skipped I Am Setsuna since it seemed like a lot of games I already played.
