Square Enix has kicked off a new sale on the Switch eShop. Titles such as I Am Setsuna, Lost Sphear, and Romancing SaGa 2 have been discounted.
I recommend I Am Setsuna. Great little JRPG with an amazing soundtrack.
How does it compare to say, FFIV or Chrono Trigger?
Not at all. Tokyo RPG factories games are average at best. Just try Octopath Traveler. The game is fantastic.
I’ve been thinking about it, but heard that it is also mediocre. I didn’t like Bravely Default either. Been lately playing again Xenogears, Chrono Cross and Final Fantasy Tactics, and none of the new games don’t even come close. I did enjoy Saga Frontier 1-2. Would you say I should still try Octopath Traveler?
Where have you heard Octopath is Mediocre? because everyone praises the game. It's not the same developer as BD. I hated BD. Ocotpath has the best original OST of 2018 bar none. It's truly a great game and the best non 1st party Switch game of 2018
The thing that has personally turned me off of Octopath is how the other party members basically have nothing to do with the story of your currently chosen protagonist. I've not played the game but that's what I've read and seen. I know it's the kind of thing that would take me right out of the experience.
