Great news for those of us who have been following Square Enix's recent foray into the classic RPG! Ikeni to Yuki No Setsuna has just been announced for the West, and will be coming just in time to cool of the summer heat for the PS4!

Distinctively an old school RPG with 1990's stylization, I am Setsuna is Square Enix's homage to the past, described at TGS 2015 as a"purefantasy, true role-playing video game." Based on the roots of both Square and Enix, then this is something that all gamers can look forward to, especially those who love epic stories, indelible piano music, and the polish games of that era shared.

Taking place on a snow-bound island, immediately one can perceive that the theme of I Am Sestuna is intended to be sadness - the japanese title literally means Setsuna of Sacrifice and Snow. According to ancient customs, a maiden must be sacrificed as appeasement to demons; the game sets off with a cast of characters who accompany Setsuna, the chosen one, to the edges of the known world for her own sacrifice. How this concludes though - we have all yet to discover.

It's interesting to point out that the battle system is a modern combination of both Square Enix's famous ATB (Active Time Battle System) and the upgraded ATB 2.0 of one of the most famous JRPGs of all time: Chrono Trigger. As such, battles take place not in the overworld, but through dungeons (similar to CT) and depending on the position of the player party, different movesets can activate, so long as a character's ATB guage is filled up.

There's also a separate limit break type mechanic called the Setsuna gauge; with each action taken or when the ATB gauges is allowed to fill, a special power boost is given to the characters resulting in battle changing events like new attacks, health recovery, or massive critical attacks to the enemies.

So far, I Am Sestuna is looking to be a fantastic addition to the pantheon of Square Enix RPGs, and it's something we can all look forward to: revisiting a pure old school JRPG, especially since Japanese audiences have given it so much acclaim.

Great JRPG
Has elements from classics JRPG's like Chrono Trigger with new textures, sounds and a good story.
I am Setsuna is playable in English, because the non-region lock that the nintendo switch have.

It's a must for anyone that like old style JRPG's.

I loved the classic jrpg look and gameplay. You get into this muscle memory button pressing that's really enjoyable. The one thing that I didn't like was the lack of control customization.

Fantastic! 5 Stars!
Take note: this cart will be fully playable in English as soon as you put it in your Switch. No Region-locking and multi-language is a god-send, Arigatou Nintendo!

Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna (I am Setsuna) is a strong title for the Switch in its early life and combines all the JRPG elements you have come to know and love of the last few decades. A MUST BUY for Switch owners!!

I am Setsuna
Hello, I received this game unusually quicker than I get my other PlayAsia orders which was great. I plopped it in my switch and everything was in english. If you want a classic style jrpg with some amazing art direction look no further.

Can I also say, I had placed a preorder for a Vita game that I recently canceled and playasia returned my credit within 24hrs. FANTASTIC GRADE A Customer Service.

You have earned a customer for LIFE!!!! PlayAsia is highly recommended in my book.
