More and more it's less and less surprising to hear about small teams of developers making impressive, independent titles that are either self-released or crowdfunded. However, in the case of Lost Soul Aside, knowing only one guy is working on a project of this scale is pretty impressive.

The game, evocative of Final Fantasy, Ninja Gaiden, and the Devil May Cry series, is currently in development by Bing Yang. The industrial design student from Seoul, South Korea recently released a trailer for Lost Soul Aside, a project he has been working on for a "long time." Made with Unreal Engine 4, the game isn't a far cry from bigger budget, AAA titles, looking remarkably similar to the upcoming Final Fantasy XV. Check the trailer out below.

Since releasing the trailer, a lot of eyes have directed their gaze to Yang, including Sony and Epic Games. Both companies have shown interest in the game according to a post on Yang's Facebook. " I don't know if I can get their help but this really gives me more confidence to finish Lost Soul Aside," he writes. "So many kind [people] from all over the world [have contacted me]. I have no words, but thank you friends."

No release information has been given for Lost Soul Aside, including which platform it's being developed for. Yang says he is considering whether or not to launch a Kickstarter for it. To keep up with the game, you can follow Yang on Twitter.
