The SaGa series, which has captivated gamers since its inception, traces its origins back to the first Romancing SaGa game in 1992 for the Super Famicom (SNES) console. This classic was revitalized with the enhanced remake, Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song, which made its debut in Japan and North America in 2005. Subsequently, a ported version of the original Super Famicom game was launched for mobile phones and digitally for the Nintendo Wii in 2009, while a remastered edition of Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song graced our screens in December of a recent year.
The legacy continued with the release of the sequel, Romancing SaGa 2, for the Super Famicom in 1993. In December 2017, fans worldwide rejoiced as a remastered iteration of the game became available for PS4, PlayStation Vita, Switch, Xbox One, and PC. Romancing SaGa 3 followed suit, making its debut on the Super Famicom in 1995, and later receiving a remastered edition for PS4, PS Vita, Switch, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android in November 2019.
For those seeking a SaGa experience on their smartphones, the Romancing SaGa Re; Universe game took Japan by storm in December 2018. This mobile marvel showcases beloved characters from the series and unfolds a story set three years after the events of Romancing SaGa 3.
SaGa Emerald Beyond represents a promising new chapter in the enduring and beloved SaGa series, inviting players to embark on an unforgettable adventure across diverse worlds, all while celebrating the rich history of the franchise.
