Romancing SaGa 3 Heads West, But Only After SaGa 2 Launches Overseas

Square Enix has announced a western release for Romancing SaGa 3.

The news comes from the SaGa team, who confirmed the news on Twitter. “We will make western version RS3. It will be after the Japanese version,” the studio said on Twitter. “But, at first, RS2 Vita for West. I want your patience, please.”

In case you missed that slight note there, Square Enix also confirmed Romancing Saga 2  is still in development for PS Vita, and will be releasing overseas before the third game in the series is brought west for the first time. It’s also worth mentioning the game will come to mobile devices, with optimized touchscreen controls.

Released back in 1995 for the Super Famicom, Romancing SaGa 3 has never been released in English officially. Players are able to choose from eight protagonists, each with their own story, providing a pretty meaty RPG experience.

    Underrated franchise.

    It’s.. A nice game. Now if only they fix the stupid amount of random enemy attacks..

    I loved the SaGa series before the ps2.
    I had always hoped they would release the Frontier games on the psn, which they have in japan but not in the west.

    I like aspects of romancing saga 3, but the fan translation is rife with problems.
    If it gets put on psn I’ll buy it without hesitation.

    Never played this series. Not sure I should. Isn’t this the one that has a bazillion characters to recruit?

    Never played.

  • Please fix your article title.

    It makes it sound like Squeenix is planning on releasing SaGa 2 (or, more specifically, the Japanese-only remake of the game), then Romancing SaGa 3- not that they are doing a simple sequential release of Romancing SaGa 2 and 3.

    I understood what the article meant, but having very, VERY, **VERY** fond memories of SaGa 1 and 2, and remembering the SaGa 2 DS port didn’t get localized, does kinda hurt.

    One of the series I am looking to get into.
