Digital version to include new features

I Am Setsuna Tokyo RPG Factory/Square Enix

I Am Setsuna, the throwback role-playing game from Square Enix’s Tokyo RPG Factory, will be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. Available on March 3, it will be sold digitally and include new, exclusive features.

A short press release by Square Enix, issued today, was light on details but did call out one of the new game modes designed specifically for Nintendo’s new console. Called “Temporal Battle Arena,” it will allow players to battle against each other’s parties.

I Am Setsuna launched on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC last July. The game reviewed well, including here at Polygon, where we called it a “somber yet joyful nostalgia trip.” Players take on the role of a hero accompanying Setsuna, a young woman sent to be ritualistically sacrificed in order to save her village. It’s the first game from Tokyo RPG Factory, a studio founded by Square Enix in order to revitalize classic JRPGs on modern consoles.
