I Am Setsuna Quests Toward Nintendo Switch


Square Enix has announced that they will bring I Am Setsuna to Nintendo Switch, which had been developed by Tokyo RPG Factory and sought to be a homage to JRPG masterpieces of yesteryear.

It centres on an island that had a custom where to maintain peace, a sacrifice must be offered to a fiend on the island once a decade. But one year, the fiend grew violent before the next sacrifice was due to be made.

Those that dwell on the island grew afraid and looked to calm the fiend by offering a sacrifice; Setsuna, who was chosen because of her powers of enchantment. She must leave with her safeguards for the farthest land, where the ceremony of sacrifice will be held.

With a battle system inspired by timeless JRPG classic Chrono Trigger, I Am Setsuna promises to deliver “an emotionally impactful and memorable story which immerses players in the narrative of Setsuna, whose story portrays heartrending sorrow.”

After releasing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC last year, I Am Setsuna was met positively by critics, sat at a 74 Metascore on Metacritic.

I Am Setsuna will release on Nintendo Switch in 2017
