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. Those that seem guilty will be put on trial at the end of the link, but players won’t know if they ferreted out the guilty parties until the last battle, at which point they will turn and join The End for the final battle. Traitors are randomly determined at the beginning of each new game, ensuring that no two games are alike.
