Emperors SaGa: Only a Sliver of Hope for the SaGa Series

Emperors SaGa is the latest game in Akitoshi Kawazu’s SaGa series to come out this September in Japan. It is a mobile title headed for smartphones, and Square Enix is teaming up with GREE for this free-to-play entry in the series. In the game, you will take control of an Emperor who is tasked with saving the world from some sort of ‘crisis.’ Supposedly, the game will feature characters and enemies from previous SaGa games, and will boast a new card-battle system.
To someone who has poured hours into the free roaming, hardcore experience that is SaGa Frontier, this news comes as…bittersweet. On one hand, I pretty much thought Square Enix had declared this series as dead. On the other, I am happy to feed on the crumbs of any new kind of SaGa game. To my surprise, I had found out that there were several remakes of the early SaGa titles for the Nintendo DS. Unfortunately, those were Japan-exclusive. OpRainfall’s Jonathan Higgins wrote an article dealing with that topic. (Android, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, Nintendo, Retro, Romancing SaGa, Romancing Saga II, SaGa 2: Hihou Densetsu, Square Enix)

SaGa is a series that has been continually misunderstood in America. I hope one day that it has a chance again for success. I loved SaGa Frontier.

I remember playing the first Saga and was completly thrown off by the presentation. But once I started playing this game it was brilliant.

Love the SaGa series.

I hope it comes here. Hopefully it's released for iOS and Android here like Final Fantasy Legends (Dimensions).

Holy crap a new SaGa game!? A little disappointed that it's a mobile game but I hope we get a PSN release of 1 and 2.
