I Am Setsuna Release Date Announced

Square Enix has announced the release date for I Am Setsuna. The game will be releasing on July 19 for North American and Europe and will be available for PlayStation 4 via PSN and PC.

I Am Setsuna was first revealed as Project Setsuna during last year’s E3. I Am Setsuna is described as a callback to the era of 16-bit JRPGs. The game’s battle system takes inspiration from Chrono Trigger with enemies appearing on the map where the battles take place and there are even dual tech-like abilities in the name of combos.

As far as the story Square Enix describes it as such: “I Am Setsuna tells the sorrowful story of Setsuna, a young woman of incredible inner strength, and the sacrifice she must undertake to the save the people of her land. Players will be immersed in an emotional and unforgettable story of true bravery as Setsuna leaves her hometown with her bodyguards on a journey to the farthest land.”

    Hoping this game really redeems Squenix.. If this somehow turns into a bust, it’s over :[

      Hardly, but we do live in a world where people think what they say is gospel.

        I moreso meant that it’ll be over between Squenix and myself. It’s hard to trust their games are quality anymore for me. Not to say it’s over for all of their fans.

          I don’t think we should blame the company itself though, I still think they pump out really good games, they maybe highly flawed and completely different to what we expect (mostly from nostalgia) but the gaming community has pretty much changed drastically now, when you take a look at the games we get now compared to 10 years ago, all quality has dropped across all developers. I still enjoyed the FF13 series despite it’s flaws and they did a good job with the Tomb Raider reboot. Companies also need to put an emphasis on graphics now as that’s all the majority seem to care about.
