Xbox One games – RPG from Final Fantasy maker ONLY out on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC
Xbox One has plenty of great multi-format games – but one cross format RPG will only release on the PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Square Enix have confirmed Lost Sphear, the follow-up to old-school style RPG I Am Setsuna, will not be released on Microsoft’s console.
The news will come as a shock to JRPG fans on the Xbox One as other Square Enix RPGs – such as Final Fantasy 15 – was released on the third-gen Xbox.
Another upcoming Square Enix RPG, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, is a timed PS4 exclusive – and is rumoured to be releasing later on the Xbox One.

Describing Lost Sphear, Square Enix said: “The adventure of LOST SPHEAR begins in a remote town where a young boy, Kanata, awakens from a devastating dream to find his hometown disappearing.
“To stop the world from being lost forever, Kanata and his comrades set out to rebuild the world around them with the power of Memory by manifesting thoughts into matter.
“Expanding upon the beloved features from their debut title, I Am Setsuna™, LOST SPHEAR features an enhanced gameplay system with a revamped ATB battle system where players can strategise and freely adjust their placement mid-fight, seamless environments, and various locations to explore.”
Lost Sphear is penciled in for release during early 2018.
