As you might have previously read, Square Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory is working on a new console game called Project Setsuna. Today, company president Yosuke Matsuda, mentioned that the new RPG will revolve around "sadness."
It's development period is kind of sad as well. It's planned to be short and after the game's release, the results will determine whether it'll become a bigger IP or not.

That thing we called E3 2015 has hit the books as just another part of gaming history. A time of miracles and weirdness alike, this past E3 was something special for everyone young and old, but you can bet that some stories stood out more than others. As may rumors and far-fetched dreams came true this summer, even more will have to wait.
Why I'm still worried about the game, and why it might not be for reasons you suspect.
I can’t help be nonplussed at not only the lack of progress visually (the original 2009 reveal, though we now know it was a sped-up recording of the game, looked arguably better), but at both Sony and Ueda’s unconcern over it. No doubt the publisher wants badly to see returns at this juncture, but why pass up the chance to wow? Wow sells systems, and verisimilitude sells worlds, dots i’s and crosses t’s.
From Final Fantasy VII Remake, Fallout 4, Dark Souls III, Shenmue III, South Park: The Fractured but Whole, Kingdom Hearts 3, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness to Fire Emblem Fates and Bravely Second (was officially revealed before E3 but still very close.) RPG Fans will have so much to look forward to going forward.
On Episode 107, MAINEac17 and CapnMikeM welcome Kailon791 back to the show. Aaron has been away for about two months and during this time he has been working on some cosplay outfits. He actually debuted some of them a few weeks ago at Colossalcon. We go on to talk about his impressions from the E3 press conferences. And we take a deeper dive into games like ReCore, Horizon: New Dawn, and Ghost Recon Wildlands.
It’s E3 Week and we couldn’t be more excited by some of the news that came out of this year’s press conferences. Certainly Microsoft had some really big news with backwards compatibility, their new elite controller, Game Preview, and more. But at the end of the day, we’re gamers and it’s the games that matter the most.
E3 this year was supposed to be filled with groundbreaking news that would delight these console owners. Unfortunately, it turned out to be one of the most disappointing E3's I can ever remember seeing and was filled with numerous money-grabbing sequels to tired, old franchises.
Square Enix has announced the start of the new RPG studio called, Tokyo RPG Factory.
At the moment, the studios already working on a new RPG series project, known as Project Setsuna. Not much is known besides that it will be available worldwide in 2016.
As RPGs have always been a major asset for SE, they're now stepping up their game by having a specific studio in developing RPGs, and to start off is with Setsuna.
"The world’s biggest gaming expo is currently underway, and E3 is already delivering on the promise of big game announcements. Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo have got their conferences out of the way, and with them came some exciting, predictable and surprising reveals. Here are 8 of the biggest announcements you may have missed."
A chibi-esque Final Fantasy title has been announced for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita coming in 2016. The game looks like a typical RPG game with cutesy visuals and chibi characters. You’ll fight familiar monsters and meet familiar characters in a familiar yet different world.
A small glimpse of No Man’s Sky was shown at Sony’s E3 press conference tonight. The live gameplay demo was played by the creator of the game, Sean Murray of Hello Games. He starts us out at a boundary between two warring factions and he notes that you can join in or take sides and fight.
Today at Sony’s E3 press conference the new game from the creators of LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway was revealed. The new game from Media Molecule is a game where players are able to create things based off their “dreams”, which ties greatly into the sharing and creation side of the game.
The Last Guardian is still alive, against all odds. Sony opened up their press conference with footage from The Last Guardian, Team Ico’s latest project, a game that was supposed to be out in 2010 but was seemingly stuck in development hell for the past five years, with Sony and Ico simply reassuring us that it still existed without actually giving any proof.
