SaGa Frontier Remastered Announced, Featuring an Extra Playable Character

SaGa Frontier Remastered has been announced, and is an enhanced version of Square’s 1998 PS1 JRPG. The game, originally released in the US in 1998, will be remastered for Switch, PS4, mobile devices, and PC, with some of the cut content being restored for this remake.

SaGa Frontier introduced players to seven potential protagonists and allowed them to explore the game world in a non-linear way. For the Remaster, there are now eight characters: Fuse, who appeared on the home screen but was not available in the game, has been restored. Each character has their own goals and endings, so you could possibly play the game eight times and have a different experience with each character.

Beyond Fuse, there are also other scenes and sections that were removed from the original release that are being restored. This should be the latest version of SaGa Frontier.

The game, set throughout an entire solar system, was considered confusing by many critics at the time, but was well received in Japan and has a cult following. You can check out the remastered version in the trailer below.

The game will launch in the summer of 2021.

Square Enix has remastered and released a few different SaGa games in the last two years – in 2019, Romancing SaGa 3 and SaGa: Scarlet Grace made their way to modern systems.
