Romancing SaGa 3 originally came out 24 years ago on the SNES or I should probably say the Super Famicom since it never received a Western release. Until now of course, otherwise writing this news piece would be a little strange. The remastered version of the JRPG will release on 11th November for iOS, Android, Switch or PS Vita.
It's not the first game in the series to head over to the West eventually though. The prequel, Romancing SaGa 2, came to mobile in 2016. So it clearly did well enough that Square Enix felt the sequel deserved to be given the remaster treatment.
You'll start the game by choosing one of 8 different protagonists to become 'The Child of Destiny'. You'll recruit new members to join your party as you go along and will experience various intertwining storylines as you make your way through the game.
The gameplay itself is very much that of a traditional turn-based RPG with a few differences. Once you've created your party, its members won't level up by gaining experience in battles, instead, their stats will increase individually depending on how they perform in combat. So if you want them to get stronger, you have to make sure they're pulling their own weight.
The game will also feature a new narrative thread that tells the story of the Archfiends Trap where four Sinistrals appeared to wreak havoc. There will also be a new dungeon for you to explore as well, so there's plenty of new content on offer here.
It's also shown at the end of the trailer, which you can see above, that another Romancing SaGa game – SaGa Scarlet Grave Ambition – will also be available for iOS, Android and Switch on December 3rd. So if you're a fan of the franchise you're going to be well catered for by the end of the year.
Romancing SaGa 3 will be available on multiple platforms on 11th November. You'll be able to take your pick from iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch and even the good old PS Vita.Check out our news section to discover the latest, and greatest, games.
