Classic JRPG fans will have something to look forward to very soon, as Square Enix has announced that Romancing SaGa 2 will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC worldwide on Dec. 15.
Originally released exclusively in Japan for the Super Famicom in 1993, the game finally received an official English translation last year for iOS and Android. A PlayStation Vita port of this version had already been announced way back in May of last year, and is also set to join its console brethren with a Dec. 15 release.
Romancing SaGa 2 is actually the fifth game in the SaGa series, following the first Romancing SaGa and the three Final Fantasy Legend games on the Game Boy. The SaGa games play like the traditional turn-based JRPG’s of old, not unlike the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom’s Final Fantasy entries. In fact, there is a bit of overlap in staff members that worked on the Final Fantasy series and the SaGa series, including famed composer Nobuo Uematsu and designer Akitoshi Kawazu. Fans of old-school Final Fantasy may want to keep their eye on this one.
This new version of Romancing SaGa 2 features new content, including a new dungeon, new classes and a new game+ mode.
