Square Enix has confirmed that Romancing SaGa 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch next week on December 15! Those that grew up on Super NES JRPGs and poured through every issue of EGM, Game Fan, and GamePro will no doubt remember seeing screens of this game from the Japanese version. The game wouldn’t make it over to the west (along with many other JRPGs), but Square Enix is fixing that after all these years.
A remastered version with better detailed graphics is coming to the Switch. The game still retains its 16-bit look, but there are some nice visual upgrades in place. Of course the game has been fully translated into English. I’ve never been into the Romancing SaGa series, but I have to admit this one has caught my eye. I may have to give it a try! Check out the official site for a lot more information!
