SaGa Frontier Remastered is coming to PS4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android ‘mid-2020’, Square Enix has announced.
SaGa Frontier Remastered, Square Enix’s rerelease of the 1998 PlayStation RPG classic, is set to hit mobile, console, and PC next year.
Complete with updated graphics, events, cutscenes, enhancements – alongside an all-new protagonist – the release of the remaster will bring the title to fans in Europe for the first time in its history.
How these new events and features will be rolled into the scenario exactly remains to be seen, but the trailer below gives us a good overview.
“The 1998 PlayStation classic is back: SaGa Frontier is being remastered for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android – launching in Summer 2021!” Square Enix has noted in the description for the video.
The game and its odd ‘Free-Form Scenario System’ was pretty innovative back in the day, and it’ll be interesting to see how it stands up in a modern setting. The closest thing we can compare it to is probably Octopath Traveler, for what it’s worth.
“The team of eight have returned – now with Fuse added as a playable character! Choose your favourite character and embark on your own unique journey. Challenge yourself in nail-biting battles by using ‘glimmer’ as well as learning new skills such as the ability to fire consecutive special attacks from multiple team members”.
SaGa Frontier Remastered will hit modern consoles, PC and mobile in summer 2021.
