"We see I am Setsuna as a complete game in its own right and are not currently considering doing a direct sequel. However, we would like to continue making games based around the same core concepts. At Tokyo RPG Factory we set our objective for Project Setsuna as taking the unique appeal of the RPGs from the 90s and using a group of developers who loved those games to further evolve them as modern games," said director Usuke Kumagai.

"There is always room for improvement so for the next project we want to build on what we learned from doing I Am Setsuna."
