A new Japanese RPG called Lost Hellden is getting attention as a game that could follow in the footsteps of classic RPGs. The people behind the game have worked on famous games like Final Fantasy. There will also be a demo later this year so players can check out the world of Lost Hellden.
Artisan Studios, although currently based in Quebec, has its roots in Paris, France, and has grown into a multicultural team proficient in Japanese, French, and English. The studio has positioned itself as a specialist in creating high-quality 2D RPG games, with a vision to become the top Western studio developing original IPs in Japan.
Lost Hellden has a story that brings back the feel of old RPGs. It takes place in a world where everyone is linked to one of the Seven Deadly Sins in a special ceremony. The game’s story centers around a pair of twins whose experience leads them on a journey of self-discovery, promising a mature and engaging narrative that you would see from older Final Fantasy games.
Lost Hellden introduces players to a richly detailed and hand-painted aesthetic, showcasing expansive and dramatic backdrops alongside meticulously crafted characters. The visual and auditory elements are being created by industry veterans Hitoshi Sakimoto and Takeshi Oga, known for their contributions to iconic titles such as Final Fantasy 12, Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, Gravity Rush, Siren, Final Fantasy 11, and Final Fantasy 14.
Lost Hellden is supposed to be a modern RPG experience with action and strategy in its battles, so everyone can play however they like. The game is made for RPG fans who want a traditional and immersive experience, unlike recent action-focused Final Fantasy games. The use of special technology is supposed to add more depth to the game, but it looks old-school to me.
If you are excited about Lost Hellden, the upcoming demo will let you see more of what the game offers. We’ll be sure to report when it is released to the public.
