It was previously revealed that Tokyo RPG Factory’s RPG I Am Setsuna would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but now we know that it will feature exclusive content when it does. Square Enix has revealed that the game will be getting free DLC on Nintendo Switch, which will include a new PvP mode.
The PvP mode is called the “Arena of Time,” which is essentially an area that you can go to in order to initiate battles with other players. It’s worth noting that these battles won’t be live, as you’ll be going to this arena after a certain point in the story to upload your battle data and download your opponents’. While the specifics on the mode haven’t been detailed, it seems likely that it will keep track of your most used moves mixed in with your current level, hp and so on.
For those who have never played the game, “This is the story of Setsuna; a young woman of incredible inner strength and the sacrifice she must make to save the people of her land.The Island had a custom. To maintain peace, once a decade, a sacrifice was offered to a fiend on the island. However, one year, the fiend grew violent before the next sacrifice was due. Those living on the island were afraid and tried to calm the fiend by offering a sacrifice; Setsuna, chosen because of her powers of enchantment. Setsuna must leave with her safeguards for the farthest land, where the ceremony of sacrifice will be held.”
I Am Setsuna is set to launch for the Nintendo Switch on March 3rd in Japan, though for other regions it currently only has a launch window of March. We loved the game when we reviewed it last year, which you can check out by clicking right here.
