Romancing SaGa 2 in English
« on: April 11, 2016, 09:02:24 PM »
It's happening, people.

It's really, really happening.

YES I'd rather have it on Vita.

But I'll take what I can get. Now, if S-E would just do with RS3 what they did with RS1, but for PS4 ... give me the most ridiculous cel-shaded goodness, full-scale remake. My body and mind are both ready. I want to own the full SaGa collection.

(oh wait ... Imperial SaGa. and SaGa Scarlet Grace.)

But still, this is like, a 25 y/o game that we're finally getting. And I've been listening to its music for forever and a day, and I want to SEE and PLAY the game associated with that music.

Anyone else pumped about this?

What platform will it be on?  iOS?  Like you, I want Vita too.

EDIT: Saw the news story yesterday (4/12) on the front of the site.  Mobile.

I liked the WonderSwan remake of the first SaGa and the DS one of the second, not to mention imitator The Legend of Legacy, so this I might play in the future.

I guess I really should've made that thread instead of posting this in the General Game News thread.

Here's a link, btw.

As for my opinion, read my posts in the 'PS4 or Vita?' thread on the General Discussion board.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

You can get 3rd party AC Adapters for SNES for like $10 on Amazon. I just got one for a friend recently. Well ... assuming it's the same adapter for a Japanese SNES as American (9 volts is 9 volts, right?)

Do you speak the Nihongo?

I was gonna get a third-party adapter but I heard they tended to have issues? Like they die fast, or... give strange pictures? Also I have an American SNES -- it's not like there's any real lockout on them.

Also I don't speak Japanese but I'm... interested in learning to read it and the added challenge of having to deal with games in a language I don't really know is... rewarding, and also makes me feel like I'm getting more than just entertainment out of my gaming sessions? And it also makes you look at language differently when you don't have fluent, reflexive understanding of it to rely on?

(Although I mostly got RS2 cause I had RS1 and 3 from when I was in highschool and it was one of those WELP MIGHT AS WELL COMPLETE THE FAMILY deals.)
