Classic PlayStation RPG SaGa Frontier is getting a remaster on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Square Enix has confirmed that the 1997 role-playing game SaGa Frontier is receiving an HD remaster.
The remaster continues Square Enix’s work in updating the SaGa series and the game will be released for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC, iOS, and Android next summer. Romancing SaGa 3, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions, and mobile game Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe are already available. Unfortunately, Xbox owners are once again out of luck.
SaGa Frontier Remastered will include the usual array of improvements, including high-definition graphics and new story content that gives Fuse a turn as a playable character. Asellus – perhaps the game’s most popular character – will also receive some brand new story events.
The game is notable for the innovative Free Scenario System that encourages non-linear gameplay and lets players travel throughout the game’s worlds as they desire.
Here’s our first look at the remaster in action.
Four SaGa Frontier characters – Alkaiser, Emelia, Blue, and Rouge – have also been added Romancing SaGa re;UniverSe for a limited time. Players can obtain them via an Ultra-Deluxe Summon until December 9. 2020.
