More details have been revealed about the upcoming Square Enix RPG Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna. Developed by Tokyo RPG Factory, the game stars a bodyguard who is meant to protect 18-year-old Setsuna, a young woman who is meant to be put to death in a ritual meant to protect their village from monsters. During the game, the two must traverse a large snowy landscape in order to make it to the sacrificial site.
The game features a traditional world map that is peppered with towns and dungeons, as well as hidden treasure. Battles only take place in dungeons where enemies can be seen roaming the environment. Also, battles are turn based, but take place wherever you happen to engage the enemy, rather than a separate battle screen.
Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna is schedule to release on PS4 and PS Vita in Japan early next year. Check out some new screenshots as well as a short livestream gameplay video below.
