This trailer just launched in the last few hours. I don't think we knew anything about this previously no?

It looks almost Chrono Trigger-esque but modernized. I'm certainly intrigued. I could use a good RPG like this on Switch. Check out the trailer below for the reveal and be sure to share your thoughts and opinions in the comments.

Looks nice! I am liking the art style and the general vibe.

Neat! Looks a lot like I am Setsuna which makes sense since it's the same developer. Love the fact that Square Enix is doing their part to keep the traditional turn-based RPG alive. Something like this interest me a lot more than Final Fantasy XV.

Melodramatic and melancholic, just the way I like my RPGs. Will probably get. I think the visuals could use some extra pizzazz, though.

EDIT:

teh press release said:
LOST SPHEAR will be available digitally from the PlayStationŽStore, Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, and STEAM. A physical package is now available for pre-order exclusively from the SQUARE ENIX Online Store for the PlayStationŽ4 system and Nintendo Switch. Fans who pre-order the game from the SQUARE ENIX Online Store will receive two music tracks as a gift at launch.
Physical release is now a preorder bonus? Fuck this industry, man.

That used to be my catchphrase, didn't it? Feels...like home.

Sphear, another in a long line of words that Square Enix makes up to be like a real word but it's not quite that word.

@PogueSquadron lol yep, it's a Squeenix title all right.

Looks like it would definitely scratch that classic JRPG itch, though.

Well, I went ahead and pre-ordered on Square-Enix's website. I've never done that before, and uh, wow. There are like, 17 different steps to confirm a purchase, including several verification methods and confirmation codes.

I guess that's a good thing, since payment fraud isn't exactly a rare thing when buying things online, but still. That was a process. And apparently even though everything has been confirmed by the website, I still have to wait up to 48 hours for Square's employees to check the checking of the verification, and then I'll get a confirmation email confirming the confirmation of my verified order that has been confirmed with a confirmation code that was sent to my phone.

Also coming to PS4 and Steam.

Color me interested, it's the same team that made I am Setsuna, a game that I adored.

It's nice to see a new IP from square, instead of relying on Final Fantasy. I'll probably try it at some point.

Is this related to Project Octopath Traveler? Either way it looks very nice.

No. Here is the payment plan according to Square's own confirmation email that I finally got:

"Please also note that we have not charged you yet. You will be notified by email before we debit your account, which will occur a few days before the delivery of your pre-order."

Groovy. I might just pre-order it myself then.
