Soul Saga is described by its developers as "A love letter to J-RPG classics from the Playstation era like Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Suikoden, and Persona."
Which means, in case you hadn't got that far on your own yet, some Westerners are looking for money on Kickstarter to make a new "classic" JRPG.
Most of the development work is actually being handled by just one guy, Mike Gale, and other games he cites as inspiration are Chrono Trigger and especially Final Fantasy X.
He's looking to release the game on PC, and there's a big rundown of the planned universe - and mechanics - on the Kickstarter page.
