Remember how earlier this month El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron director Takeyasu Sawaki was teasing a new “major” project?
Well, right here it’s. Called The Lost Child, it’s an RPG for PS4 and Vita which writer Kadokawa video games says inherits the DNA of El Shaddai in that it’s set within the trendy period and the protagonist is ready to seize angels and demons. Scheduled to launch in Japan on August 24, it doesn’t appear more likely to come west at this stage.
Here’s the story synopsis, translated by Gematsu:
Magazine author Hayato Ibuki was chasing the story of the suicide an individual who jumped in entrance of a prepare in Shinjuku Station. In the center of his pursuit, he falls onto the platform as if he was pushed by a mysterious black shadow. A mysterious, stunning girl named Barcia (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro) saves him by the pores and skin of his tooth, and palms him a suitcase. It was a Pandora’s Box that ought to not have been be opened.
Inside was the “Demon Gun Gangour,” a device that may seize and enslave demons and fallen angels. Using this capacity, Hayato efficiently took on his personal demon subordinates. Together with a girl named Rua (voiced by Rikako Yamaguchi), who calls herself an angel, Hayato will pursue the mysteries that happen in numerous locations and discover the attractive girl who gave him the suitcase
Players will discover numerous places as Hayato, gathering info adventure-style to advance the plot. Management of your captured angles and demons – collectively referred to as Astrals – is achieved by way of a pill, represented in sport by a menu display. Astrals are utilized in turn-based battles, and have numerous abilities and assaults which have to be used tactically towards the enemy’s weaknesses.
So, yeah – it does sound so much like Persona, or the broader Shin Megami Tensei household, or certainly their many imitators. I’m fairly disenchanted. An Enoch cameo or no matter won’t compensate.
