The patch will be live at:

  • 3 PM PST, November 29th, 2022
  • 6 PM EST, November 29th, 2022

  • 8 AM KST, November 30th, 2022

Please note that if you are playing at this time, your game will not be interrupted. You will be prompted to download the patch the next time you open Lost Eidolons.

We also have an important note about the Bracelet of Durability stat fix. If you have a mid-battle save with a character equipping the Bracelet of Durability item, please refer to the details we share below.

Now, here’s a word about this patch from Jin Sang Kim, the Creative Director of Lost Eidolons.

Hello, everyone!

This patch brings some small-but-important changes before we roll out the big patch in December (December patch will bring New Game+ and dialogue cutscene updates that I introduced before).

First of all, we made changes to the battle restart feature. You now have the option to start from the battle preparation phase. If you prefer, you can also choose the existing restart method–restarting from the very first turn. With this change, you can quickly make adjustments to your setup and get back into action when you restart a battle.

We also adjusted the battle balance for chapters 8 and 18. We felt those two battles may have been a huge difficulty spike for many players, so we focused on taming that spike a little bit. We also made it easier to get the very first recruitable character, Karin. There is power in numbers, so this should also help you with the subsequent battles!

Last but not least: I would say the biggest changes we bring in this patch would be enabling a proper Lost Eidolons experience on the Steam Deck. We fixed an issue with cutscenes so that they now show properly on the Steam Deck. Moreover, we added the option for changing the UI font size, which improves readability. We strongly believe these changes create a better experience to those who enjoy Lost Eidolons on a handheld device!

Other Fixes and Improvements
  • Fixed the incorrectly implemented stats on the quest item Bracelet of Durability, which you obtain during a side quest in Ch. 14.
    • [IMPORTANT] If you have a unit equipped with the item and saved mid-battle, using Continue to resume the battle may cause a crash. While the crash happened very rarely during our testing, when it happened, it resulted in losing that save file.
      If you are unsure, you may want to wait on the update until you check and save at a point where you are are no longer equipping the item.

  • Fixed the issue where the different areas were not shown on the camp map, if you opened the map while standing in-between areas.
