Square Enix continue their porting of classic games from their back catalog of games. One of the most recent ports is Romancing SaGa 2 for Android and iPhone. The interesting thing about this port is that this is the first time it is available LEGALLY in English. Sure, there are illegal reproductions of fan translations available, this is the first time that Square Enix themselves have released it. Please, support the companies that make these games or we may not see more. Think about that. This is the full Super Famicom game, with controls adjusted for the mobile world and of course, in English.
Square Enix are asking a premium price for Romancing SaGa 2, which is something fans should be accustomed to by now. They are not simply putting the ROM file in an APK with an emulator and calling it a day though. Square Enix are actually doing conversion work to make the games run as well as possible on the newer hardware. This includes tweaking controls, graphics and even adding cut-scenes that were not available in the original release. They give fans something extra for that premium price tag.
Romancing SaGa 2 was originally released in 1993 for the Super Famicom in Japan. Considering this is the first time it is officially available in English Square Enix has remastered nearly everything. The open ended gameplay is still intact here as well as the unique battle system.
Fans of Japanese role playing games, here is another to add to your collection. You won’t be sorry, especially if you are a big fan of the Romancing SaGa series.
