During the latest Nintendo Direct livestream, the release date and new gameplay for SaGa Frontier Remastered was revealed. It’ll be launching on April 15 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, and iOS/Android. Along with updated visuals, the classic RPG from Square Enix will feature new content like additional scenarios for Asellus, one of the game’s several protagonists, and a new playable character named Fuse.
SaGa Frontier was the first in the SaGa franchise to release outside of Japan, and stood out for its science-fantasy setting, turn-based combat, and free-form story with multiple protagonists. With eight characters (seven, previously), players are free to approach each of their storylines however they want.
This is the latest in Square Enix’s efforts to revitalize the franchise–so far, we’ve had western re-releases of Romancing SaGa 3, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions, and Romancing SaGa Re: Universe. Soon, SaGa Frontier will be playable on modern platforms, too.
