Emperors SaGa Finally Comes Out In September, Makes Players An Emperor

By Spencer . August 28, 2012 . 1:10pm


While SaGa may not be a core brand for Square Enix anymore, the series racked up ten million units in sales. Emperors SaGa probably won’t bring the series back to its open ended world routes, but at least it’s a new entry in the series. The last brand new SaGa title was Unlimited SaGa and that came out a decade ago.


Emperors SaGa turns players into a emperor who has to save the world from an unprecedented crisis. The game has a card battle system that defies common logic and artwork from Tomomi Kobayashi. She drew Andromache, a super rare card you can get by registering for Emperors SaGa before the game’s launch.


Square Enix and mobile phone game goliath GREE plan to release Emperors SaGa at the end of September.

    There are two SaGa games on the DS aswell in 2009 and 2011 while they are remakes there still vastly different to the originals. One can be played in english as well.  

  • I love~ Tomomi Kobayashi’s artwork. I bought a copy of “The Essence of SaGa Frontier” bc I loved the artworks they showed in SaGa Frontier.

  • Whoa, has it really been a decade since we last got an original SaGa game? And while I swore to never recognize Unlimited saga as a SaGa game…well, I think it was better than nothing :/

  • For mobiles…. whelp, SaGa is finished here.

  • “A new SaGa game? Awesome, finally!”

    “Oh, a mobile game? God dammit.”

    Man, SE sucks, SaGa  remakes never got a english release, and now this “awesome” game :/

    And on a side not, Tomomi Kobayashi is a woman, not a man

  • Alright!! A new SaGa game! *reads more* Cards? Mobile phone? Oh, come on! What is with the gaming industry these days?!

  • Mr.Bushido

    I love the design of the white knight

  • XanaduNext!!!

    Actually, the Last saga game that came out, at least here any way, was Romancing Saga -Minstrel Song- which came out 2-3 years after Unlimited Saga. Although I guess you aren’t counting Romancing Saga since its a remake, and not Brand new.
