The Lost Child will be heading West this Summer


Gods Among Us

NIS America have announced Western release dates for mysterious god-battler The Lost Child, which is coming to PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Switch in June.

The Lost Child follows occult investigator Hayato Ibuki, who stumbles upon otherworldly forces whilst following the trail of a series of strange suicides in Tokyo. Hooking up with mysterious girl Balucia, Hayato is given a weapon of extraordinary power, and so begins a tale of gods, monsters and the mere mortals caught in-between.

The new trailer (which you can check out below) gives you, frankly, nothing. But the game appears to be a visual novel interspersed with real-time RPG battles. I found no footage on traversing open worlds, or any traversal at all, in fact. Just lots of chatter followed by menu-based battles with a menagerie of weird creatures and fallen angels. It will be interesting to see how the game shapes up once it hits these shores.

The Lost Child launches on PS4, PS Vita and Switch on June 19 in North America and June 22 in Europe.
