Kadokowa Games has announced a new project from Takeyasu Sawaki, the director behind the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. This time around the director will be working on a turn-based RPG known as The Lost Child. A teaser trailer was also released for the game, which is due in Japan this summer for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. No announcement was made regarding a western release.
Set in the same universe as El Shaddai, players will take control of Japanese magazine writer Hayato Ibuki as he is saved from a near brush with death by the interference of a beautiful woman. The woman hands Hayato a briefcase that contains a unique tool that allows for the capture and enslavement of demons and angels, otherwise known as Astrals. This leads Hayato to become involved in a demonic conflict occuring throughout Japan.
