The Lost Child headed to the Nintendo Switch this Summer

Earlier this month, NIS America announced and showcased quite a few games for the Nintendo Switch during their annual press event. And seeing that the company has been one of the strongest supporter of the Nintendo Switch, from the beginning, it should come as no surprise that it actually had even more games in the works, such as God Wars: The Complete Legend, but also The Lost Child.

Initially announced exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita (the only platforms it was released on in Japan), The Lost Child is headed to the Nintendo Switch this Summer in Europe and North America, alongside the other two platforms.

This game follows the story of one Hayato Ibuki, a journalist for an occult magazine. One day, as he’s investigating a series of mysterious suicides in Shinjuku Station, a black shadow pushes him on the track, but fortunately, he’s saved at the last moment by Balucia, a mysterious girl.

But she doesn’t just save him: she also gives him a large case… and a brand new life in the process. It turns out that case contains Gangour: a demon gun that is used to capture and use demons, and then turn them into allies.

With that gun in hand, and Lua (a self-proclaimed angel) by his side, Hayato then travels all over the country in order to investigate mysteries, and search for the beautiful mystery woman who gave her the demon gun. As you would expect, it doesn’t all go according to plan, as he ends up caught between the ambitions of the dark rules, and the ambitions of the angels.

Here’s the latest trailer for the game:

And here’s the list of key features:

  • Mythology Unbound – Features 100+ Astrals from myths and legends to capture, each with 3 unique forms to progress through!
  • Spread the Wealth of Knowledge – There are more than 250+ skills to learn among your party of captured Astrals.
  • The Infinite Abyss Awaits – Test yourself against massive dungeons with up to 100 floors of deathly dangers!
