Romancing Saga 3 is available to purchase right now on the Xbox Store. The cult JPRG series is making its debut on Xbox platforms, 24 years after the series launched in Japan. What’s more, if you pick up the game within the next 23 days, you’ll get a 20% discount on the standard price.
This third iteration is also making its debut in the west on any modern platform. Prior to this re-release, players would have to seek out a Japanese version of the game. Even then, it was only available on mobile, Wii/WiiU, PlayStation Vita or the original Super Famicom.
Fellow Enthusiast Lucas speaks here about why we should care about this re-release. In short; open-ended storytelling, deep progression mechanics and a unique atmosphere make this JPRG worth a shot. You may have played a Final Fantasy game before, but Romancing Saga 3 provides a wildly different take on the genre, and is finally getting localised on modern platforms.
If you feel like PC or even mobile would be a better fit for the genre, there’s even more coming for those systems. Next month, SaGa SCARLETT GRACE: AMBITIONS launches on those platforms, giving players even more opportunity to experience the Saga series.
Will you be picking this one up whilst the discount is live?
