Western Release Dates for The Lost Child Set for June 2018

NIS America has announced the western release dates for El Shaddai director Takeyasu Sawaki’s latest game, The Lost Child.

The game will launch via retail and digital storefronts across PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and digital-only for PS Vita on June 19th in North America and June 22nd in Europe.

It’s worth pointing out the western version will have both English text and both Japanese and English voice options.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Occult journalist, Hayato Ibuki, encounters a strange girl during his investigations into a series of mysterious suicides in Tokyo. She implores that Hayato must live, before bestowing upon him a mystical device that allows him to capture celestial and arcane creatures. He is now thrust into a world beyond our own, home to horrific monsters and celestial beings. In it, he must delve into dungeons called Layers and solve the mystery of the device. Where his journey leads him could decide the fate of the our world…
