During NIS America’s annual press event, which DualShockers attended, the publisher announced a release window for Takeyasu Sawaki’s new dungeon JRPG The Lost Child.
If Sawaki-san’s name sounds familiar to you, he is the man behind El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron for PS3 and Xbox 360, and the character design of Okami.
The game will launch for PS4 and PS Vita both in North America and Europe this summer. A more precise release date was not provided.
