Square Enix is pumping out new (and old) RPGs on a regular basis – with games like The DioField Chronicle and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII to look forward to later this year. If these games weren’t already exciting enough, it seems yet another classic could be getting a remaster.
As spotted by the Twitter account @asiangameprints (via Nintendo Everything), a listing has recently appeared on Play-Asia for SaGa Frontier 2 – originally released by Squaresoft on the PlayStation in 1999/2000. This includes a listing for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, with the “official release date” scheduled for next month on 25th August.
Here’s Play-Asia’s description:
“Saga Frontier 2 introduces a complete renovation of the RPG genre. Traditional computer polygonal fixtures are replaced with lush, hand-drawn watercolor graphics supported by an awe-inspiring musical score. Blending both freedom and linearity, this title utilizes the Multi-Scenario System giving players unparalleled freedom in choosing which scenario they want to play while other scenarios crisscross with one another. Complementing this feature are three innovative battle modes: Duel, Team, and Strategic. Depending upon the model selected, the player can control an individual character, a team, or several units to fight in battles, bringing depth and precision to the combat sequences.”
Square Enix has made an effort to build this classic RPG series back up in recent years – with last year seeing the arrival of SaGa Frontier Remastered on the Nintendo Switch.
