I Am Setsuna, the Chrono Trigger inspired RPG will be arriving on PlayStation 4 and PC on July 19 of this year.
The story, set in a land gripped by perpetual winter, follows an unnamed mercenary and his charge, a maiden named Setsuna who must offer herself as a sacrifice at a sacred shrine to appease hostile demons. The story’s central theme is sadness. The gameplay, which is deliberately designed to evoke role-playing games of the 1990s, uses an Active Time Battle system based on those used in early Final Fantasy games and Chrono Trigger.
The game is beautiful and gives me a huge wave of nostalgia, and with a firm release I am unabashedly giddy to sink my teeth into this time capsule of an RPG. Square, you’re making me very happy
