According to a press release from Square Enix, the much-anticipated, classically styled RPG I Am Setsuna is set to arrive in America on July 19 of 2016. Players can expect the game to drop on both the Playstation 4 and Steam.
For those who haven’t been following the title, it seems to be taking its cues from the great JRPGs of yesteryear, Chrono Trigger in particular. The similarities in the two games’ combat systems are uncanny. Story-wise, the game follows a young girl named Setsuna who sets out on a sacrificial journey for her people. Not much else is known besides the fact that she has a bodyguard named Endir, an experienced mercenary. What is known, though, is that despite the classic top-down look the aesthetic design at work here is gorgeous, and I can’t wait to get my hands on what may finally be a proper heir to the golden age of the JRPG.
I Am Setsuna is brought to us by Tokyo RPG Factory, for whom this is their debut title.
