Atlus bringing PS3, PS Vita tactical-RPG Lost Dimension stateside

Atlus has announced a second new title this week, a new tactical role-playing game from Lancarse, Lost Dimension. The sci-fi-tinged mystery pits players and their 11-character party, the Special Forces outfit Sealed, against an alien known as The End. Throughout the game, players must form relationships and psychic links with their squadmates in order to enter their minds to find out if they’re a traitor.
