I’ve already talked about how I Am Setsuna’s battle system shares more than a little in common with classic JRPG Chrono Trigger. But it’s not just the battle system. Quite a number of Chrono Trigger’s techs show up remastered in I Am Setsuna as well.

Let’s compare, shall we?

X-Strike


Double Cure


Fire Sword


Ice Sword


Antipode


Lifeline


Omega Flare


Delta Force


I Am Setsuna was released in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on February 18, 2016. It is scheduled for a Western release (only on PS4 and PC) later this year.
