Lost Odyssey is a new Japanese Role-Playing Game (JRPG) IP targeted for the Xbox 360. The game is made by Mistwalker Interactive, the studio that made Blue Dragon, a JRPG for the Xbox 360 released in Japan earlier this year. The game will remind players of Final Fantasy games, with a fantasy world featuring high-tech cities but also swords and magic. The player takes the role of Kaim Argonar, a young looking 1,000 year old soldier pit in battle against an army of robots.
Combat is turn-based and similar to Blue Dragon. You have the option of attacking with your sword or casting offensive and defensive spells. The look of the game is more mature, rather than the cartoony look of Blue Dragon. Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is producing the game. Famed Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu is creating the soundtrack.
