LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fans of impactful narratives and classic gameplay are sure to delight in today's release of I AM SETSUNA™ for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and STEAM®. The debut title from Tokyo RPG Factory delivers an emotional and unforgettable story of bravery and sacrifice, along with beautiful art design and masterful character development.
The game follows the story of Setsuna, a young woman of incredible power and inner strength, on her journey of sacrifice to save the people of her land. The word "setsuna," derived from the Japanese "setsunai," conveys bittersweet sorrow and serves as the foundational theme of the game. The aim of the development team was to help global audiences better understand this concept through the fullness of the game.

The studio revisits the ethos and practices used to develop for the 16-bit era and aims to re-introduce the classic JRPG style to current hardware, mixing the spirit of the past with technologies of today. Taking inspiration from the golden era of JRPGs and their storytelling, innovation and depth – the first title from the studio, I AM SETSUNA, has arrived for North America.
