Square Enix has dropped a new trailer for SaGa Emerald Beyond, letting players get a taste of the gameplay for the upcoming standalone entry in the SaGa franchise. Expected to launch on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Steam, iOS and Android this April 25th, the RPG offers 17 unique worlds you can explore across branching narratives.

In the latest trailer for SaGa Emerald Beyond, you can take a peek at two of the game's key playable characters, Bonnie Blair and Formina Franklyn. The former is an ex-marine while the latter is a famous sharpshooter, and the two of them have been assigned to investigate an assassination attempt on Capitol City's president.

Combat is a fun-filled affair where you can tinker around with the best combinations of Martial Arts and Conditional Techs. You can also wield two-handed weapons to maximise your firepower and take down unwitting foes.
