Project Setsuna

Square Enix has announced the opening of a new RPG studio called Tokyo RPG Factory, which it initially began hiring for in September 2014.

The studio is working on a completely new RPG console project, which will be a new series, called “Project Setsuna.” It is planned for a global release in 2016.

“RPGs are a major part of the Square Enix legacy, including Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts,” said Yosuke Matsuda, President and Representative Director of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. “RPG fans from all over the world have supported us along the years. To keep creating incredible new RPG titles, we started Project Setsuna and it is developed by Tokyo RPG Factory, a newly established studio for the project.”

Further details will be unveiled later this year.
