Publisher Square Enix today announced at this year’s Game Developers Conference that its newest studio, Tokyo RPG Factory, has been put in charge of the revival of several classic JRPGs, with its debut project being the revival of the classic title I Am Setsuna. A Western release has already been confirmed, and is slated to come out sometime this summer on both the PlayStation 4, and Steam.

Tokyo RPG Factory, led by director Atsushi Hashimoto, aims to “capture the narrative depth, impactful storytelling and masterful character development inspired by the golden era of Japanese role-playing games”, and hopes to bring these classics back to life by preparing them for the newer generation of gaming consoles, as well as those who play them. I Am Setsuna uses a battle system inspired by the timeless hit Chrono Trigger and will do its best to endure that the game contains a classic, thrilling, and authentic-feeling RPG experience. Tokyo RPG factory hopes that this classic gameplay, along with alluring visuals and a story that promises to tug at the heartstrings, will entice players to check out the modern remake of this JRPG classic.


Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
