SaGa 3: Ruler Of Space-Time – Shadow or Light, a Nintendo DS remake of Final Fantasy Legend III, has some new features like the scenario synchro system from SaGa 2: The Treasure Legend – Goddess of Destiny.
Players earn gear points from battle which power the Times Gear. Gear points range from –5 to +5 and are shown as a meter during battle. In this screenshot, the party has 4 gear points. These open up choices and lead to alternate events. It appears the Times Gear can be used in battle too, but it’s unclear what effect it has.
SaGa 3: Ruler Of Space-Time – Shadow or Light has a Romancing SaGa style growth system where you get stat boosts and new skills during battle. The abilities you gain depend on what weapons you use. In the Game Boy version of SaGa 3, players purchased spells.
While there are some system changes, the game and the characters are the same. Arthur is in SaGa 3, but he isn’t called Arthur. He goes by his Japanese name Dune. The characters from left to right are: Dune (Arthur in the US version), Celia (Sharon), Polnareff (Curtis), and Milfy (Gloria).
SaGa 3: Ruler Of Space-Time – Shadow or Light is scheduled to come out in Japan this winter.
