Square Enix, being on a hot streak when it comes to remastering their older games, has announced SaGa Frontier Remastered for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, iOS, and Android. This is an enhanced re-release of the 1997 PS1 classic, with shiny high-definition visuals and even brand-new content, and will launch worldwide in the summer of 2021.
Check out the announcement trailer below!
I’m really excited about this: SaGa Frontier is an underrated gem in Squaresoft’s library, and a game that was notoriously unfinished at the time of its release. The Remastered edition will fill in some of the missing gaps from the original, such as an eighth playable character (Fuse), and missing event scenes from Asellus’ story. Director Akitoshi Kawazu, writer Benny Matsuyama, and composer Kenji Ito are all behind the new content, giving it a stamp of authenticity. What’s more, the Remastered version will have some QOL fixes, such as a 2x speed option.
