Last year, we saw the release of I Am Setsuna for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Much like one of Square Enix’s other recent role-playing games, Bravely Default, it was an attempt by the publisher to provide an experience somewhat reminiscent of an old-school JRPG from a previous era in gaming.

Considering its recent re-release on the Nintendo Switch, this seemed like as good of an opportunity as ever to revisit this modern take on a classic genre. After all, unless we suddenly enter a hypothetical perfect timeline where not only does the Switch have Virtual Console support, but where Square Enix has also released its back catalogue of role-playing games on the platform, this is the closest thing we’ve got to such titles on Nintendo’s new console.
