Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna

Square Enix announced Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna, its new RPG from Tokyo RPG Factory, for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita during SCEJA Press Conference 2015. It’s due out in Japan in early 2016.

The game features party organization, towns to shop in, dungeons to explore, formidable foes, and an ending that will make you cry. It’s described as a “pure fantasy, true RPG” by the company.

Update 12:30: The following are details from the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu’s coverage of Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna:

  • The game offers the feel of 1990s-era RPGs like Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Chrono Trigger.
  • You’ll progress through events and battles with an overlooking perspective of the map, and battles use the familiar Square Enix Active Time Battle system.
  • The switch between movement and battle on the field is seamless. There isn’t a screen switch that occurs.
  • Development is 60 percent complete.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
