The beautiful world of snow and the story of Setsuna, resurrected through delicate music box tones. The in-game melodies from the JRPG I am Setsuna have been elegantly recreated on this paper-tape music box. We would like you to experience a different flavor of the world of Setsuna with your very own hands.
Unforgettable music, unforgettable memories.
On the body of the music box, you will find the stylized “I am Setsuna” logo and the iconic silhouette of the tree from the game delicately carved onto the front. In addition, the first 100 music boxes will have a unique serial number carved onto the back, making them truly one of a kind!
*Sample design. Actual product may vary.
The music box comes with a paper-tape music sheet for the original song “Winter journey's tale” from the game, upon which the characters from I am Setsuna are printed. These pixel characters only appear in certain places in the game. If you’ve played the game before, do you remember where they appear?
Carefully separate the music sheet into four pieces, reconnect them into one long paper-tape music sheet, and you’re ready to perform! With you own hands, gently send the paper off to the music box. We’ve prepared an instruction manual in English as well, so don’t worry! Just enjoy that moment of suspense as you wonder what sort of sounds your little music box will play!
Watch as the characters progress through the music box together with the beautiful melody!
The pixel characters that appear on the music sheet are selected from the characters shown below. As for which characters in particular will show up on your music sheet, that’s for you to find out yourself!
Early Bird backers (limited to 100 backers only) will receive a music box with a unique serial number carved onto the back. Yup! It’ll be a one-of-a-kind music box that belongs to you and you only!
In addition, Early Bird backers will also receive an original I am Setsuna postcard!
One more special point we’d like to bring your attention to this time is the package that the music box comes in.
The Japanese version of I am Setsuna is titled “Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna.” For this project, we went with the English title because the project is mainly geared towards fans overseas. However, fans in Japan are also welcome to back and support this project! This English version could even be a rare item in and of itself for Japanese fans!

With inspiration from the JRPG with time-honored popularity Chrono Trigger, I am Setsuna (Japanese title: Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna) was created as an homage to the “Golden Era of JRPGs.” In order to save the people of her village, Setsuna is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice as she sets out on her journey.
