Phantom Brave: The Lost Hero Announced

As part of the latest Nintendo Direct, Nippon Ichi Software and NIS America announced tactical RPG Phantom Brave: The Lost Hero. The game, developed by the creators of the Disgaea series, is a sequel to the PlayStation 2 title Phantom Brave, which was also ported to PlayStation Portable and PC as Phantom Brave: The Hermuda Triangle before being remastered for Nintendo Switch.

Phantom Brave: The Lost Hero follows a young girl named Marona and her phantom companion Ash, the main characters of the first game, in a new adventure as they traverse the ocean world of Ivoire. During this trip, they come across the Shipwreck Fleet, a crew of ghost pirates led by a masked man who plans to use the powers of Marona to fulfill his own ambitions. This new threat prompts Marona and her friends to assemble the legendary crew that once managed to vanquish the Shipwreck Fleet.

Phantom Brave: The Lost Hero is a turn-based tactical RPG with gridless maps. Players deploy their spectral troops by binding them to items placed on the battlefield. One new addition to the battle system from the original game is the possibility to combine phantoms with gadgets, which grants access to their characteristics and skills. Marona can also fuse with her phantom friends to use powerful abilities capable to turn the table during battles. The game features over 50 characters to use and 300 skills to master. Phantom Brave: The Lost Hero is planned to release in 2025 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

Fascinated by the screens since I saw them, video games are a sorcery I quickly become obsessed with. This passion culminated with the discovery of the RPGs. At that time, they were likely the sole titles where story and world building mattered as much as gameplay. Now, I am writing about them, especially my favorite ones: the JRPGs!
