To all those dungeon crawler fans out there, we have some exciting news to share as NIS America has just released a new trailer for its upcoming game, The Lost Child. The trailer highlights Astrals and their innumerable uses in and out of battle. Astrals are celestial beings that players will both battle, capture, and control throughout the duration of the game. They come in three forms – Angels, Demons, and Fallen Angels, all with their own unique skills and abilities.
The trailer showcases a player’s opportunity to capture and convert their enemies into allies and use them in battle. Not only that, you’ll also be able to transfer the skills learnt between party members and Astrals. The Lost Child gives of a dark Pokémon-like vibe in the way you’ll be able to obtain these Astrals and train them to do your bidding in battle.
The Lost Child follows the tale of Hayato Ibuki, an occult journalist who meets a mysterious girl, while searching for answers in relation to a slew of unnatural suicides in Tokyo. Having failed to communicate with each other on several occasions, the girl tells Hayato that “he must die”. Before she departs, the young girl gives the confused journalist an unknown device, capable of capturing beings with celestial powers. With device in hand, Hayato is now tasked with battling and capturing an array of deadly creatures, a task he certainly never signed up for.
Featuring more than 50 different creatures to capture, each of which possessing three different forms, The Lost Child will certainly be grind heavy if you want to collect them all. Training and levelling up these creatures will unlock new skills, of which there are 250 to discover, and also change their appearance after reaching the acquired level.
Get ready to hunt angels and demons real soon with The Lost Child releasing onto PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PS Vita (digital download only) on June 29, 2018 in Australia.
