NIS America has announced that they will be bringing The Lost Child Westward sometime next year.

Developed by Kadokawa Games, The Lost Child is an dungeon crawler RPG that follows occult journalist Hayato Ibuki who runs into a mysterious girl while investigating a strange outbreak of suicides in Tokyo. After being begged by the girl to live she hands him a mysterious device which allows him to capture celestial and arcane creatures. Hayato soon afterward finds himself thrown into a demon-infested alternate universe and, armed with only his wit and the mysterious device given to him, sets out on a journey to uncover the truth behind what is going on.

For more information, check out the list of key features below:

  • 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 and distribute among your party of captured Astrals.
  • The Infinite Abyss Awaits – Test yourself against massive dungeons with up to 99 floors of deathly dangers!


The Lost Child is slated for release on PlayStation 4 sometime in 2018, in both North America and Europe. What are your thoughts on this monster-collecting DRPG? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
