Square Enix has announced that it will be releasing a remaster of the classic RPG Romancing Saga: Minstrel Song this winter on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android . The company has already released updated versions of a number of games in the SaGa series , including the recent SaGa Frontier .
The original Romancing Saga was released in 1992 on the Super Famicom. In 2005, the company released a remake for the PlayStation 2 called Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song, but it only appeared in Japan and North America. Thus, the version of Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song – Remastered will be the first European release of the game.
For the remaster, the developers tightened up the graphics, reworked the controls and improved the gameplay. They also promise some new content. However, the combat system with an emphasis on combos and dodges was left the same.
In Romancing Saga, we choose one of eight heroes whose paths are connected and embark on a perilous journey in an attempt to prevent the release of the evil god Saruin.
