Developer Tokyo RPG Factory Publisher Square Enix Format PC, PS4, Switch Origin Japan Release Early 2018
All is forgiven, Bravely Default – at least that was correctly spelt. A more accurate title might have been IAmSetsuna,Too, since Tokyo RPG Factory’s follow-up to its wintry JRPG throwback is clearly from the same production line. The art style and top-down perspective are identical, while the ATB-style battle system is similarly familiar, albeit tweaked to accommodate an additional party member and allow freer movement than Setsuna managed. This new world isn’t blanketed in snow, which should mean the journey is less visually samey, though its premise is similarly gloomy: protagonist Kanata must find out why the inhabitants of his hometown have vanished. If one of said denizens is called Sphear, we suppose all must be forgiven.
