So far, it’s a good year for neglected Squaresoft Super NES games. Trials of Mana was finally officially translated and published in America this summer, and now Romancing SaGa 3 will follow it. The sixth game in the SaGa series, it originally appeared on the Super Famicom in November of 1995.
Romancing SaGa 3 gives players the freedom to forge their own path, choosing to play through eight different narratives led by eight protagonists, each with their own motives and unique personalities. Developed by industry veterans, including renowned developer Akitoshi Kawazu (FINAL FANTASY®, Romancing SaGa, SaGa Frontier), this HD remaster will feature optimized graphics, a new dungeon called the “Phantom Maze” to explore and a NEW GAME+ function. The upcoming remaster adds new storylines to the game, making it the perfect time for both new and veteran players to experience the SaGa series.
Following the old SaGa will be a new SaGa. SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions is an enhanced version of SaGa Scarlet Grace, which (again) was a Japanese exclusive, albeit a much more recent one. That game came out in 2016, so three years isn’t a bad wait compared to the game up above.
SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS is an enhanced version of the 2016 title SaGa SCARLET GRACE, originally released exclusively in Japan. Packed with a variety of improvements and additions, this version includes new and improved graphics, character voiceovers, two new characters not included in the game’s initial release and more. Newcomers and long-time fans of the franchise can shape their own destiny with one of four protagonists, Urpina, Taria, Balmant and Leonard. Each hero has their own unique storyline, which allows players to enjoy four different adventures in one title.
Romancing SaGa 3 will be released November 11 on positively EVERYTHING (Switch, PS4, XBox One, PC via Steam, PS Vita, the App Store and Google Play). SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions will be out December 3 on Switch, PS4, PC via Steam, App Store and Google Play.
