Lost In Shadow Lost Until January 2011

screenshot_024The shadowy boy in Lost in Shadow isn’t always a shadow. When the boy dons the Watchman’s Sword he can cut a door in reality and become a being of light when he steps through it.


This power allows the boy to touch physical objects for a limited amount of time. Usually, the boy has to rely on Spangle, a fairy traveling with him, to interact with switches and other real world items. The Watchman’s Sword is one of the blades the boy will acquire on his quest to recover his soul.


While Lost in Shadow made its debut in Japan last week, the creative Wii platformer won’t head West until next year. Hudson set January 4, 2011 as the North American release date for Lost in Shadow. Previously, the game was slated for 2010 in North America and Japan.

    This sucks, this was one of the wii games I was really looking forward to this year.

      Me too, but w/ so many games to play I think next Jan isn’t so bad.. I remember I imported Shadow of the Colossus before because I really couldn’t wait. I really like the Jpn cover though, but I don’t think I want to spend so much importing this one, I hope Last Story wouldn’t be delayed :)

      BTW, the other game I would really want to play right now is Limbo, but 1200 MS pt is just a bit pricey for a 3hr game as artistic as it is, so I’m going to wait for a sale or something (I get most of my XBLA titles when they’re discounted :)

    • Konami to ruin or christmas once again. I remember looking forward to Elebits: Adventures of Kai an Zero (Euro version), then the pushed it back to Q1 2009 :(

    I dont get this at all; this has got to be the worst localization ever. The Japanese version of the game is in complete English!

      As someone who owns (and cleared) the Japanese version, I didn’t find any English option in the game. Main menu doesn’t offer the option, neither does the pause screen.

      Did I miss something here?
