Update: Bumped to the top. The Lost Sphear demo is live in North America. Also, you can now pre-load the game in North America.

Original: Lost Sphear, Square Enix’ latest RPG for the Switch, has been out in Japan for a couple of months now. A demo was also released for the game on the Japanese eShop back in September. With the game’s Western release on January 23rd rapidly approaching, the demo is now also available on the European Switch eShop. It’ll likely hit the North American eShop soon as well.

Thanks to Bart and chusetto for the tip.

Now that the Lost Sphear demo is available on the European Switch eShop, we’re able to see what it’s like in English. Take a look at some footage below.

To celebrate Lost Sphear’s western demo release, Square Enix has prepared a new trailer. Developer Tokyo RPG Factory has also passed along a message. Both videos can be found below.

Unlike I Am Setsuna, Lost Sphear will be sold physically in North America and Europe. There was a catch when Square Enix announced the game, however. It seemed as though the physical version would be exclusive to the company’s store. Or so we thought.

We started to notice this last week, but it looks like Lost Sphear will be sold on Amazon in Europe. We first spotted a listing on Amazon UK. Amazon Germany and Amazon France have listings now as well.

As for North America, well… we might be out of luck there. So far there aren’t any signs of Lost Sphear being available anywhere else other than Square Enix’s online store. But if you absolutely don’t want to deal with that site, importing from Amazon’s European outlets should be an option.

Square Enix released a new story-focused, English trailer for Lost Sphear titled “Restore the World”. See the video below.

Lost Sphear isn’t off to such a great start in Japan. Combined sales of the Switch and PlayStation 4 versions are just over 13,000 copies. On Switch specifically, the RPG sold roughly 6,000 units in its first week.

Data from Dengeki further points to a lack of interest in Lost Sphear. According to its numbers, the game sold through just 20 percent of its initial shipment. Not only is Lost Sphear selling slowly so far, but Square Enix may have overestimated interest and there will likely be an overabundance of copies sitting on store shelves.

Square Enix has launched Lost Sphear in Japan. The RPG can be purchased in stores, though a digital version is being distributed as well. It’s a 2.4GB download, in case you’re curious.

Lost Sphear is still a few months out in the west. It’s planned for January 23 in both North America and Europe.
