LOST SP­HEAR

Devel­oper Tokyo RPG Fac­tory Pub­lisher Square Enix For­mat PC, PS4, Switch Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease Early 2018

All is for­given, Bravely De­fault – at least that was cor­rectly spelt. A more ac­cu­rate ti­tle might have been IAmSet­suna,Too, since Tokyo RPG Fac­tory’s fol­low-up to its win­try JRPG throw­back is clearly from the same pro­duc­tion line. The art style and top-down per­spec­tive are iden­ti­cal, while the ATB-style bat­tle sys­tem is sim­i­larly fa­mil­iar, al­beit tweaked to ac­com­mo­date an ad­di­tional party mem­ber and al­low freer move­ment than Set­suna man­aged. This new world isn’t blan­keted in snow, which should mean the jour­ney is less vis­ually samey, though its premise is sim­i­larly gloomy: pro­tag­o­nist Kanata must find out why the in­hab­i­tants of his home­town have van­ished. If one of said denizens is called Sp­hear, we sup­pose all must be for­given.
