Today, Kadokawa games released a brand new batch of artwork 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 images, that you can see below, showcase the Astrals that we can encounter in the game when exploring and fighting our way through the dungeons-like areas named Astrals.
Astrals won’t just be enemies, as protagonist Hayato Ibuki will be able to subdue them. After that, they will fight by his side, and players will be able to level them up and mix and match their skills.
The gallery below shows only a fraction of the Astrals that will be included in the game. They are inspired from Gods, historical and mythical heroes, monsters and fictional characters (including Enoch from El Shaddai, who was revealed a while ago).
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 solid chance that it’ll be localized, even if nothing has been announced for now.
You can check out the gallery below, and if you want to see more, you can enjoy a recent trailer, the first gameplay videos, the latest gallery of screenshots, the first trailer, the second trailer, the first screenshots showing the return of Enoch, and another batch.
