New Square Enix Studio To Revive Classic JRPG Hallmarks


At this year’s Game Developers Conference, Square Enix announced that their new newest developer, Tokyo RPG Factory, was debuting its first title — I Am Setsuna. Slated for a digital release this summer on the PlayStation 4 (and Steam). Check out some of the details we received from Square Enix below.


Led by director Atsushi Hashimoto, Tokyo RPG Factory aims to capture the narrative depth, impactful storytelling and masterful character development inspired by the golden era of Japanese role-playing games and bring them to current hardware and technology. With a battle system inspired by the classic hit CHRONO TRIGGER®, I AM SETSUNA brings back authentic RPG gameplay, beautiful art design and a sorrowful story to the new generation.

Tokyo RPG Factory is a newly established studio specializing in Japanese RPGs, started in August 2014. The studio revisits the ethos used to develop past RPGs to create a completely new RPG series, which will introduce the authentic JRPG style to current hardware using the technology of today.
