I Am Setsuna Confirmed For North American and European Switch Launch

I Am Setsuna has been confirmed by Square-Enix for the Switch’s launch, in both North America and Europe. It will however be digital only in the west. The Switch version has a new PVP mode called the “Temporal Battle Arena,” in this mode players can upload / download data and battle against other players’ parties. It also has character customization options.

Here’s an overview of the game:

“I AM SETSUNA follows the story of Setsuna, a young woman of incredible power and inner strength, and the sacrifice she must undertake to save the people of her land as she leaves her hometown. Featuring simple turn-based controls and unique gameplay mechanics inspired by the golden age of JRPGs, I AM SETSUNA merges nostalgic elements with modern current-gen technology. Tokyo RPG Factory’s debut title delivers an emotional story of bravery and sacrifice along with powerful character development.”

No physical version kinda sucks, but still it’s another game available at launch.

The price hasn’t been announced yet, but other versions are $40 currently so that would seem about right.

It’s also possible that the Japanese version would have multiple languages (I’ve seen this mentioned on Twitter), so seeing as the Switch is region-free you could import it if you really wanted to.

Now announce Dragon Quest Heroes I-II for the west as well S-E.




(And Dragon Quest XI)

He's been playing video games his entire life, and has gotten progressively worse at them as he's gotten older and more decrepit. He's been running this place (into the ground) since 2013. He's old. Keeps writing about Nintendo despite mountains of evidence proving he should never write anything. Very old. Lifelong Nintendo fan, doesn't care what you think about that. Did I mention how old he is? Because he's very old.

    Disappointed might have to go digital, but not entirely unexpected since PS4 was in the same boat. My preference would be to go digital with small games or multiplayer ones I might want to switch between a lot at short notice, but having whatever big single-player game I’m currently into on a card is no big thing, and more safely future-proof anyway.
