  • Precursors: Ancient Cremonans.
  • Sequel Hook: There's no actual sequel hook in the game, but in one of the interviews leading to its release, Monolith said they've extensively developed the world and its story, but because it was a first title, only a few elements of the storyline best suited for an Action RPG were selected to be Soma Bringer.
  • Space Elevator: That ring you see in the sky in the opening moments of the game? That's actually an orbital ring, held down by a space elevator known as the Ring Tower.
  • Sprite/Polygon Mix: Soma Bringer makes use of 3D Models on 2D backgrounds for it's gameplay.
