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
We are bringing back the RPGs of yesteryear. Experience the beautiful art and music of I am Setsuna in this nostalgic teaser trailer.I am Setsuna will be released on July 19, 2016 in Europe and North America on PlayStation4 and Steam
