From the development team alone, FuRyu's new title is looking to be a great RPG to look forward to!
Lost Dimension's team consists of the Japanese game studio Lancrese, who previously helped in the making of the first Etrian Odyssey and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Yoshiaki Yamaguchi, the artist of Gravity Rush, and Jun Kumagai, writer of the successful Persona 3 movies. What's more, previews from Japanese game publications have made note that gameplay is highly reminiscent ofValkyria Chronicles and Sakura Wars!
Taking place in a post dystopian future not too far from the present, the game revolves around Sho Kasugai and his special ability called "Vision" - his powers of premonition are essential in saving people from mass destruction against a mysterious enemy known as "The End." Recognizing Sho's power, the UN forms a team named S.E.A.L.E.D. to track him down.
Without giving away too much, from what's been said about the story, player can expect an exciting tale of tension, betrayal, and redemption. This coupled with the expectations from the dev team as well as some great 3rd person tactical strategy is something all fans of JRPGS can be excited about!

First, a couple things that really held this game back for me:
-The overall story makes no sense and feels incredibly forced. It was like they had this amazing concept for a game (climb a tower while gradually eliminating your own party members), and then struggled to come up with a plot to support it.
-Most of the characters are shallow and uninteresting, which makes it hard to care when they're eliminated. If I was sad to lose someone, it was because I valued them for their battle prowess, not because I was attached to them.
That said, there's a lot to like about this game:
-Combat is deep and interesting. Lots of different stages with different strategic "puzzles" to solve and an amazing variety of different ways to do so.
-The gameplay design is both creative and clean. Every character is powerful when used correctly, and they all bring unique powers to the table that are a blast to experiment with.
-The character progression system, while complicated and somewhat confusing, is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. The element of materia when you lose a party member adds another layer of richness to the system that I enjoyed a lot.
-Individual battles and the game as a whole don't feel excessively long, which was nice, especially since I didn't enjoy the plot much.
Overall: If you like strategic combat, you'll enjoy this game a lot. If you're just picking it up for the story, you may want to look elsewhere.
Interesting concept for a SRPG game.
As soon as you are thrown into the game, you are told that there is a traitor among your party and you are required to figure out through out the game. Since the traitor is chosen at random, no play-through will be the same.
Various characters, great animation scenes and epic storyline. Get it. Very good
very good tactical rpg
