The Lost Sphear is the second title from Tokyo RPG, the first being I am Setsuna. They are both a Japanese RPG. It is also considered a spiritual sequel to I am Setsuna.

The developers concentrated on making the game style like 90’s titles (like old-school Final Fantasy) , the active battle system with a revamp works well and is also kind of cool to ply this kind of game style again.

The story of the Lost Sphear is intriguing, where you have to find memories to restore places and people from a white fog. You start out with Kanata, Locke and Lumina and soon you are joined by the mysterious Van.

The game looks good but could be better, it doesn’t mean that the graphics have to be 90s as well if they want the style like that. I expected more from the PS4 version and even the music can become monotonous very quickly.

The one thing I really disliked is the constant dialogue, it just feels like it is that one step to far. There are some voice overs in battle but nothing for dialogue which is also a bit weird.

Other than the dialogue and small little things the game is good but if I have to choose I would choose I am Setsuna above this title. Lost Sphear might have lost some quality along the development but will still appeal to Japanese Role-Playing lovers.
