Lost Soul Aside is an impressive one-person project from developer Bing Yang. Created in Unreal Engine 4, it takes some visual cues from the Final Fantasy series, though it looks to play more like Devil May Cry. It's gorgeous and looks like a game from a much larger team.

After speaking with a number of developers about turning his passion project commercial, Yang has announced via Twitter the game will be a timed PlayStation 4 exclusive.

As per the tweet, Yang also mentioned the game will include "multi weapons," (whether that means multiple weapons or weapons that can transform into others like in Bloodborne is unclear), and that he will try to finish the game in 2018. You can watch a trailer for the game below.

Our Take
Lost Soul Aside is an impressive piece of work, and I'm glad Yang has to opportunity to release it on consoles. Xbox fans will likely not appreciate the news, but securing short-term exclusivity is a sign Sony likes what they've seen of the game, which bodes well for the final project.  Lastly, I would take that 2018 time frame with a huge grain of salt.
