This morning, Nintendo UK put a new trailer on its Youtube site for the JRPG I Am Setsuna. This game came out of nowhere for me a few weeks ago, and I’m absolutely spellbound by it.
The game, as you can see below, harkens back to a simpler time in RPG history, before the West got ahold of it and made it all action-y. I Am Setsuna looks to be the turn-based RPG on console that you’ve been waiting a decade for. What makes it better though, is the way they’ve incorporated a stunningly-beautiful visual style. While the game feels very subdued, as opposed to my favorite RPG of all time, Final Fantasy IX, it still looks to offer a solid experience.
Maybe it will lower your blood pressure like watching a fish tank…
I Am Setsuna is a Switch launch title, so you can pick it up on March 3rd. If you can’t wait that long, it’s already out on PS4.
