The RPG I Am Setsuna will be getting another release for consoles, this time for the Nintendo Switch.

In a press release today, Square Enix announced that the game from Tokyo RPG Factory will be released on launch day for Nintendo's new console on March 3rd.

The Switch release for I Am Setsuna, like the other releases, will be digital only. Square Enix is, however, offering up new exclusive content for the Switch version of the game, most notably the "Temporal Battle Arena." The Arena is a free DLC that adds a PVP mode to the game, where players can take on each other in team battles after hitting a certain point in the game's storyline.

I Am Setsuna was released back in July of 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and PC, and is the first title for Square Enix's new studio, Tokyo RPG Factory. It has also been released for the Playstation Vita in Japan Only. The Story of I Am Setsuna follows the title heroine Setsuna, as she embarks on a journey of self-sacrifice to protect the people she knows and loves with the help of a group of bodyguards. Gameplaywise, I Am Setsuna invokes the classic RPG feel by using similar mechanics from titles such as Chrono Trigger for its main battle system.

The game is now the seventh title to be released on launch day for the Nintendo Switch, and the only digital download exclusive out of the bunch. The other titles, all of which will have physical copies available, include The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1, 2 Switch, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginators and Super Bomberman R.

The Nintendo Switch will launch worldwide on March 3rd.
