I’m really excited to finally be able to reveal Ghostlight’s next project… I’m delighted to say that we will be working with FURYU Corporation on the conversion and publication of their highly-regarded Japanese tactical RPG, Lost Dimension, on PC later this year!
Developed by Lancarse, creators of a number of highly acclaimed JRPGs, and published by FURYU Corporation in Japan, Atlus in North America and Nippon Ichi in Europe on PlayStation 3 and Vita in 2014-15, this one truly is a corker!
Some of you may already know that the team behind Lost Dimension have an incredibly impressive pedigree. The game's intriguing storyline was written by Jun Kumagai, the Pillar’s intelligent floor designs were headed up by Takeshi Oga, while the character designs were provided by Yuu Yamashita and Makoto Tsuchibayashi.
After racking up many hours playing Lost Dimension, it’s safe to say that everyone here at Ghostlight are massive fans of the game. We’re not alone either and here are just a few of the great reviews this excellent title has received…
In Japan, both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Lost Dimension received highly-coveted Gold Awards from a very well renowned gaming magazine company. All four reviewers from the publication gave the PlayStation 3 version of Lost Dimension a score of 8, for a total of 32/40, while the PlayStation Vita version received scores of 8, 8, 8 and 9, for a total of 33/40.
Lost Dimension was also hugely well received in the West, receiving some fantastic reviews:
Digitally Downloaded “Lost Dimension is an incredible title, with a constant sense of escalation and drama.” 4.5 Stars out of 5
PSU.com “Lost Dimension is a unique title that tries to bring some originality to RPGs, as well as a new form of replayability. The core concept is fantastic and makes the story thought provoking.” 8.5/10
NZGamer "Gripping character work complements deep combat." 8.4/10
Brash Games “In a nutshell, Lost Dimension is one of the most addictive gameplay experiences I’ve played on the Vita in a while.” 8/10
Destructoid “It's a genuinely satisfying and memorable tactical RPG that I won't soon forget.” 8/10
Taking place in the near-future with the world in ruin, a terrorist mastermind known only as ‘The End’ threatens humanity with a nuclear apocalypse. To combat this threat, a Special Forces group comprised of eleven young psychics with incredible superhuman abilities, is tasked with pursuing The End to the summit of a sky-scraping tower which has dramatically appeared on the city skyline from out of nowhere. Can the team find and eliminate The End and avoid the nuclear Armageddon he has set in motion?
Key game features:
- Take on the enemy across tactically created environments in an amazingly strategic turn-based battle system!
- Create bonds with your teammates and use your psychic talent of ‘vision’ to rifle through their minds and find the traitors!
- Every person counts in battle as you place teammates to benefit and shield each other and manage their ‘Defers’ and ‘Berserk’ modes!
- Test your investigation and deduction skills by finding the traitor on each floor of the towering Pillar. Traitors are randomly determined, so no two playthroughs are the same!
Personally, I’ve really enjoyed playing Lost Dimension, having already finished the PS3 version and nearly completing the Vita version too. Lost Dimension is not only a tactical RPG as it also features visual-novel like elements, where players’ choices determine the fate of the game's story and its characters. Such is the originality offered by the judgement and combat systems, I repeatedly found myself thinking about this game at home after work!
With Lost Dimension, FURYU Corporation have created an incredible JRPG that manages to feel unique, yet strangely reminiscent of some of my favourite Japanese games :)
The PC version will support multiple screen resolutions, mouse/keyboard and controller support, Steam Achievements and cloud saving. It will also feature the original high quality localisation from Atlus, plus we will be implementing higher resolution artwork in a number of areas in-game. In addition to this, we are also considering offering a special Digital Collector’s Edition, although I can’t promise anything on that front until we’ve worked through all the available game resources :)
I’m really looking forward to getting this game on to PC and you can be sure that here at Ghostlight we’ll do our best to improve on the technical specs of the original game and bring you the best version of Lost Dimension that we possibly can. I hope you’re as excited as I am to be sharing this excellent JRPG with the PC-gaming community. Lost Dimension will be released on Steam in 2017, so remember to keep an eye on our blog and social media pages for more news and updates :)

Long ago, a war was waged between the Vile God and the Goddess.
The battle was fierce; the two were equally matched. Finally, both sides unleashed special weapons that contained fairies imbued with their power. Using this power, each god sealed away the other within another world. And so, time passed...
The weapons that the Goddess and the Vile God left were called Furies, and the warriors who used them were called Fencers. Rumors arose that the Furies were so powerful, whoever collected them all would be granted one wish. As a result, Fencers fought each other endlessly to obtain them.
By chance, a young man named Fang happened to unwittingly become a Fencer, and saved a girl named Tiara. And she, too, was a Fencer.
From that day forward, Fang found himself an important part of the battle between the Goddess and the Vile God.
Three Stories, Three Paths! In the three stories to play -the Goddess story, the Vile God story, and the Evil Goddess story -friends become foes, foes become friends, and, based on your choices, multiple endings can be unlocked!
Three Ways to Fight and Fairize! Play in Easy, Normal, or Hard mode and switch the difficulty up whenever you want to balance the game to your playstyle!
Three’s a Crowd, Six is a Party! With up to six party members on the battlefield at a time, you can play as all your favorite Fencers!
Shape the World Around You! Customize weapons by fusing them with fairies and change dungeons stats through world!
I’m sure you’re all as excited as I am to see this fantastic JRPG come to Steam, and of course if you’re playing and enjoying it then I highly recommend checking out our releases of the Agarest series, Mugen Souls & Mugen Souls Z all of which were originally created by Idea Factory.
