If you can understand Japanese and have been dying for a chance to try the upcoming Lost Sphear, you can now download the Japanese demo of the game. This demo will go over the ‘beginning parts’ of the game, and the save data from the demo can be transferred to the full game. You can download it now on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Thanks to Gematsu for this information.

Should you be excited for Lost Sphear? Our preview may have some answers for you:

When Tokyo RPG Factory was founded, the studio’s goal was to create role-playing games that would remind players of the great titles that the genre offered up in the 90s. Their first title, 2016’s I am Setsuna, did just that by evoking shades of Chrono Trigger. Now the studio is back with their second project called Lost Sphear, which looks to build upon all of the work they put into Setsuna.

I got to play Lost Sphear from the very beginning of the story. After a short battle prologue that shows off the game’s battle system, I got to control a young boy named Kanata who lives in a small peaceful village. After meeting up with a friend named Lumina, I found myself on a mission to ring the town’s warning bell as a minor monster had been seen. After doing just that (and running into the game’s third party member), my party took care of the small chicken-like monster that had found its way inside the town. Since all of that work took a toll on the team, the crew decided to go fishing so that dinner could be prepared.

Lost Sphear will release in Japan on October 12, and January 23 2018 in the West.
