I Am Setsuna comes out on July 19, and it looks fantastic.  As Kotaku said in their headline, it's Chrono Trigger in everything but name (trailer in link).

How this isn't getting more attention is beyond really does look fantastic.

Thanks for sharing this. This is the type of game that I like to buy (and play if I have time to do it). Prepurchased Steam version.

There seems to be an interesting story behind this game. Square Enix set up this development studio as an experiment to see if there is a sustainable audience for old school, golden age jrpgs. If this game is a commercial flop, the studio's future is in doubt.

 Ikenie to Yuki No Setsuna, as it is called in Japan, has already been released. Scores are averaging in the mid 70s. It is being praised for its melancholy story and tight design focus, but critics are complaining of the overly easy battles, and repetitive combat. Apparently in many instances the enemies don't even get a chance to attack. Most of the more difficult battles are optional bosses/monsters.

I'm not sure what to do. The idea of a somber story is attractive, but I HATE combat where I can basically not even look at the screen and win.
