I am Setsuna on PS4, PC etc. is an RPG game by Japanese studio Tokyo RPG Factory. This is the first production of a studio owned by Square Enix, publishers of series such as Tomb Raider and Dungeon Siege. The title refers to classic series like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and Kingdom Hearts.

Story

The action takes the player to the fantastic winter land, which is the home of the title Setssuny. Since time immemorial, its inhabitants have sacrificed young women to protect themselves from the anger of demons. This role has been assigned to Setsunie, so the girl has to go to the end of her famous world, to the chapel where she will sacrifice herself for the common good. The road ahead of her is long and full of dangers, which is why a few daredevils decide to accompany Setsunie on her last journey.

The nostalgic atmosphere of the game is a tribute to the creators of classic Japanese RPG games.

Mechanics

I am Setsuna on PS4, PC, etc. is a jRPG game, focused primarily on exploration. The action is shown in isometric projection, with the camera working gently vertically. In the course of the game, we visit the 3D locations designed in detail, continuing the journey to the place where Setsuna is to make its sacrifice. Most of the explored areas are caves, but there is also no shortage of open spaces. From time to time we come across small towns where we can exchange information with NPCs and find unique equipment.

The journey that the team we lead is not an easy one. Countless groups of enemies lurk every step of the way. All members of the expedition take part in the fight, and each of them has unique skills that develop with the increase in experience. Characteristically for the species, the fight takes place in a turn-based system; however, it has been slightly modified. The game uses the Active Time Battle system, referring with mechanics to the first parts of the game. Final Fantasy. The fighter can perform actions in his turn, including damage, healing, overlapping of reinforcements, and then has to wait an appropriate amount of time (depending on the action taken, among other things) to re-enter the fight. The important thing is that apart from the action bar assigned to each hero, there is a separate bar for Sethsuna in the game. If it is charged, all actions taken by the team members are strengthened for a short period of time.

Technical issues

I am Setsuna on PS4, PC, etc. uses the latest version of the unity graphics engine. Three-dimensional locations and character models have been designed with attention to detail. Tomokie Miyoshi's soundtrack, the author of music for SoulCalibur V, plays an important role in building the nostalgic atmosphere of the game. The game is available in English and Japanese, including text and audio dialogues.
