Square Enix announced the western re-release date for Romancing SaGa 2.
The remastered classic RPG will launch across PC (via Steam and Windows 10), PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on December 15th.
While the PlayStation 4 version supports cross-save with the PS Vita version, the Xbox One version has the same feature with Windows 10.
Here’s a rundown on the game, via Square Enix:
Originally released in 1993, the landmark title in the SaGa series has players leading the Varennes Empire in battle against the Seven Heroes. A free scenario system—a hallmark of the SaGa series—enables the player to take command of a variety of protagonists along the line of imperial succession and experience the history of a nation as it grows and changes.
