Today, Kadokawa games released a brand new trailer of the upcoming game directed by Takeyasu Sawaki, whom many will remember as the man behind El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron for PS3 and Xbox 360, and the character design of Okami.

The trailer, that you can enjoy below focuses on some of the characters included in the game (Michael and Samael), and the powers of the Astrals, which are basically the title’s version of Shin Megami Tensei‘s demons, including the skill transfer feature that lets the player customize them.

We also get to see one of the game’s dungeons, reaching its climax with a battle against the evil demon Nyarlathotep. The video gives a deep dive on the game’s basic battle system and on how extensive the features related to the Astrals are. While the similarities with Asus’ series are certainly there, it appears to have plenty of potential to stand on its own feet, from what we can see.

The Lost Child will be released in Japan for PS4 and PS Vita on August 24th, and since it’s Kadokawa Games, there is a good chance that it’ll be localized, even if nothing has been announced as of yet.

You can check out the trailer below, and if you want to see more, you can enjoy the first gameplay videos, the latest gallery of screenshotsthe first trailer, the second trailer, the first screenshots showing the return of Enoch, and another batch.
