If you are a fan of Final Fantasy and have been eagerly waiting for the release of Lost Soul Aside, developed by UltiZero Games, then the recent news might excite you. After nearly eight years of anticipation since its reveal in 2016, the game seems to be nearing a potential release date, especially with the recent approval for a China launch.

The game, originally announced as a private project by a lone developer, was later picked up by Sony as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. While the initial release date was slated for 2018, delays have kept fans waiting in suspense, but it seems that the long wait may soon be over.

The recent announcement by Lost Soul Aside's official X account concerning the approval for a China release has stirred up speculations of an imminent launch date. This news comes after the game received an ISBN license approval to release in China, indicating that it has been reviewed and given the green light to go live.


Analyst Daniel Ahmad from Niko Partners hinted that the game could see some significant updates within the next three months, hinting at exciting news possibly just around the corner. With the game now approved for launch in mainland China, fans can expect an official release date announcement in the near future.


As Lost Soul Aside seems to be in the final stages of its development, enthusiasts are optimistic about a potential launch within the next year. However, Ahmad cautioned that the license approval does not come with a strict release deadline, meaning the actual launch date could still be subject to change.

Despite the promising news of the China launch approval, neither Sony nor UltiZero Games has confirmed the fate of the PS4 version, leading to speculations about its potential cancellation. Fans eagerly awaiting the game's release will have to stay tuned for further updates to know how the situation unfolds.

With the anticipation building up and the recent developments surrounding Lost Soul Aside, gamers are eagerly looking forward to what the future holds for this highly anticipated Final Fantasy-inspired title. Stay tuned for more updates as we await the official release date announcement!
