It is published by Kadokawa Games.

    The Lost Child is based on the world that is the mythical concept of El Shaddai. Lucifel (voiced by Ryota Takeuchi), who appeared in El Shaddai, will also appear in The Lost Child. The game is set amidst a conflict of demons in modern day Japan.

    Story

    Magazine writer Hayato Ibuki was chasing the story of the suicide a person who jumped in front of a train in Shinjuku Station. In the middle of his pursuit, he falls onto the platform as if he was pushed by a mysterious black shadow. A mysterious, beautiful woman named Barcia (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro) saves him by the skin of his teeth, and hands him a suitcase. It was a Pandora’s Box that should not have been be opened. Inside was the “Demon Gun Gangour,” a tool that can capture and enslave demons and fallen angels. Using this ability, Hayato successfully took on his own demon subordinates. Together with a woman named Rua (voiced by Rikako Yamaguchi), who calls herself an angel, Hayato will pursue the mysteries that occur in various places and find the beautiful woman who gave him the suitcase.

    Tidbits

    • The story is connected to El Shaddai.
    • Enemies are villainous creatures called “Astrals.” There are several types of them.
    • During adventure parts, you’ll gather information and collect data from various places, then head into the dungeon where the Astrals await.
    • You can capture and enslave demon, angel, fallen angel, etc. Astrals as allies.
    • Development is 90 percent complete.

    I heard that alongside The Lost Child, NIS is going to also release physically: Penny Punching Princess & The Longest Five Minutes. People say expect it on March 2019.
    https://gematsu.com/2018/11/the-los...ditions-launch-march-19-2019-in-north-america

    My personal opinion:
    These games are a meh for me. I had high hopes for The Lost Child, but the game overall received average reviews & from my friend's opinion i can tell it's pretty blank and boring. Not worth it, unless you are a collector and really want to put the physical copy on your shelf.

    alf Penny Punching Princess and The Longest Five Minutes seemed like really fun games to me, though. Heard much about those?

    Yeah, Penny Punching Princess received quite good reviews, but this game seems to me more like an indie type due to its simplicity. So will pass on that too. :p

    Really great news! So will these games be available as standard retail that we can buy at Gamestop etc? Or is it online only through NIS?

    All sold out now at NISA & despite thousands (well, half a dozen) tweets asking if Europe is going to get it, NISA Europe haven't replied to any of them...

    I wanted to wait for a EU copy at first since most of my games are from EU, but preordered the LE just to be safe.

    Oh, didn't you hear? Hell froze over and the prinnies got back in control, and they are very hungry for all the coins our patronage represents.

    I'll check in here before I order the standard edition when it becomes available, just in case anyone else needs me to order extras.

    You're a star. :)

    If the LE becomes available would you be okay to place an order for me please? I've checked their faq & they only charge when they ship, but they do say "When you first place your order, we take an authorization for the full amount of your order. An authorization will hold funds aside in your bank account to see if the form of payment you listed is valid, and does not represent the final charge for your order. Although we do not take any funds from you at this time, the authorization will hold the funds aside and they will be unavailable until the authorization expires. For credit cards, it typically expires 6-10 business days after it is placed."

    Would that create a problem for you?

    Sure if they make more L.E.s available I could easily get you one of those. I wish I had known that you wanted it because I had visited that game's sale page several times while it was still in stock just to watch the stock level dwindle away. I'll keep you updated!

    Thanks! :) Rovest has also offered to help, so many thanks to both of you. :)

    I guess that at the time it went on sale, I kind of thought that Europe would get it as well, so no need to panic. However, Nisa Europe hasn't mentioned a thing about it, so it's not looking good.

    It's available again. Whoever wants one just paypal $50 to zodaex@gmail.com and I'll immediately order you one! I typically pay via PayPal so I get charged instantly.
