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.
