Alex FullerAlex Fuller Managing EditorRPGamer Staff
A number of suggestions were bandied about for Project Setsuna English title. However, few out there could've predicted the one finally chosen by Square Enix.

    I am loving the recent string of releasing games on PC and console.
    What I have seen and done to achieve my position defies belief. What I am capable of and will be party to in order to retain it would chill your soul.

    The game coming out on Steam is great but... Where did they get this title... o.o

    Kinda wanna make a photoshop of the I Am Legend poster with "I Am Setsuna" now.
    Currently Playing: Final Fantasy Explorers (3DS), The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (PC), Atelier Rorona ~The Alchemist of Arland~ (PS3)

    Yeah not sure about the title. Still interested in the game though.

    Sorry Fowl, that joke is a woosh for me because I'm unfamiliar with Gundam (or whatever that is).

    What does Setsuna mean?

    Okay, that didn't help. Gaijin, a little help here, please? Is it somebody's name?

    I am buying this game.
    Most likely.

    Buddhist concept of of exactly that. That things are only a moment and not permanent. Like the shortest moment possible.

    It is both the main heroine's name and likely a reference to the Buddhist concept of kṣaṇa (as mentioned in that link). From that page, the first, third, and fifth meanings are most likely to be relevant, though I doubt many Japanese people would really get the references either. Game developers just like to do stuff like that (cf. Nayuta no Kiseki as just one example).

    Highly disappointed to see the Vita version not receiving a Western release.

    The Vita version not being released outside Japan probably means Square won't bother to patch the vita game to fix the horrendous load times. I guess I should just deal with the version I have...
  • Joshua CarpenterJoshua Carpenter RPGamer Staff RPGamer Staff
    I'm trying my best not to whine about the loss of the Vita version, but there are some games that I really prefer on a portable and Setsuna looked like one I'd be much more likely to play and finish on Vita. Oh well, tack it on to the giant list of games that are coming out this year.
  • Adriaan den OudenAdriaan den Ouden Δ Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground RPGamer Staff
    Yeah, the awful load times are probably the reason no Vita. I've heard 10+ seconds just moving between areas? Really ridiculous stuff.

    Fine by me, though. I'm super stoked for a PC version. Really liking this PC trend lately. It's rapidly become my preferred platform.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...

    I agree fully with you on the PC deal.

    Add me to the choir of those glad it's coming to PC! An SSD should make quick work of the load times, at least if it's done well. Trails in the Sky was amazing like that.

    "Vita version will not be coming to the West" is not entirely correct. According to an interview with USGamer, they're considering the vita localization if the interest is wide enough. So tweet them in the face! :-)

    Disappointed about no Vita but this is Square Enix we're talking about. They do one good thing and then mess up something else. I'm also disappointed about the localized title of the game.
