    Square Enix announced that their old school inspired JRPG, I am Setsuna, will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch just in time for the console's launch date. The game will be a digital-only title, and will come with new Switch-exclusive features like the free DLC, "Temporal Battle Arena", which lets you fight other player's teams.

    No one cares, just give us Bravely third already.

    also known as "I am snow. a rather lot of snow. Pretty much only snow, actually". but that was too long a name, so "i am setsuna" it is.

    I kid, but it'll be fun playing it on mobile. I expect I'll say this of all switch games. Which is probably the point.

    And it looks great.

    I really liked the idea of I am Setsuma but after finishing it I wish I didn't waste my time with it. The Chrono Trigger connection got me interested in the game but it was nothing like it. It felt like a bunch of square rooms connected by tiny corridors. The dungeons were really boring and I didn't feel like I really cared about the journey etc

    Why this was never ported to Vita, I will not know. Whether it was money or resources, whatever. I guess if I want I Am Setsuna on the go, I get it on the Switch, huh?

    Cool, but I already played it, and to be honest, there isn't replayability value to this game :(
    Not gonna grab the Switch version.

    dunno why everyone is so hyped for this. when i played it on pc i got bored of it in 3 days. you just keep doing the same shit battles over and over and the story is incredibly dull.

    Digital-only is a deal breaker. Not everyone has a credit card in this country.

    If you're only going to buy game with discs on the switch, your game library will be very small :P

    My sarcastic comment was more intended to highlight the fact the games don't come on discs.
