Square Enix's old-school RPG Lost Sphear gets a new story trailer

Square Enix has released a new story trailer for its old-school, top-down RPG Lost Sphear, which is due to arrive on PS4, Switch, and PC early next year.

Lost Sphear is the second title from Square’s Tokyo RPG Factory, a team established specifically to create J-RPGs in the classic 90s mould.
