Square Enix’s SaGa series is not one we expected a renaissance from in recent years. Known for their unusual levelling techniques, unique mechanics, and interesting stories that span generations, the games have had a mixed level of success in the West. But with ports of Romancing SaGa 2 and 3, and a remaster of PS1 cult classic SaGa Frontier (among many other rereleases), the series’ devoted following has been rewarded in recent times.
And they’re going to keep on reaping the benefits of this revival too. Today, Square Enix held an official series live stream where it revealed its next SaGa-related project — Romancing SaGa Minstrel Song, originally a PS2 exclusive and a remake of the first Romancing SaGa game, is getting a remaster later this year, and it’s coming to all consoles!
The game originally launched in Japan and North America in 2005, but never saw a release in Europe, so this will be yet another SaGa title that many will be able to get their hands on for the first time. We don’t know much about the remaster as of yet, but it looks to polish up the painterly PS2 visuals and retain the incredible music, composed by Kenji Ito, with Tsuyoshi Sekito and Nobuo Uematsu providing one track each.
Romancing SaGa Minstrel Song Remastered will launch later this year on the Switch. Are you a fan of the SaGa series? Will you be picking up the game? Let us know in the comments.
