Square Enix has confirmed that Lost Sphear, the sophomore title from Tokyo RPG Factory, will launch in Europe and North America on 23 January.

Following the release of I am Setsuna - Tokyo RPG Factory's debut title - on Nintendo Switch at the system's launch, Square Enix has now confirmed that the studio's next project, Lost Sphear, will launch for Nintendo Switch on 23 January in Europe and North America.

With a visual style and battle system inspired by I am Setsuna, new mechanics will be included in Lost Sphear such as an enhanced Active Time Battle (ATB) battle system, allowing players to move characters during fights, rather than them being moved around automatically.

The physical version of the game will be available exclusively from the Square Enix Online Store, and will be available more widely on Nintendo eShop as a digital download.

Lost Sphear launches on 23 January 2018 in Europe and North America, and on 12 October this year in Japan, as announced prior to the international release date.
