SaGa Creator Hopes To Announce A New Game In The Next Two Years

By Sato . January 20, 2014 . 12:00pm


During a recent live concert by Kenji Ito, known for composing tracks for the Mana and SaGa games, SaGa creator Akitoshi Kawazu made a guest appearance and shared a few words (thanks, Game Jouhou)  in regard to the latest developments of the RPG series, which will be celebrating its 25th anniversary later this year.


“I hope to be able to make an announcement of a new title within the next two years,” Kawazu revealed.


“Development itself is quietly in progress at the moment, but we’re not at the stage where we can make announcements at the moment,” he added.


During the event, Kawazu also brought up collaborations and past titles, according to the report, indicating that Square are working on several plans to coincide with the series’ 25th anniversary, which takes place on December 2014.


In an earlier interview, Kawazu shared how impressed he was by Monster Hunter 4 and the Nintendo 3DS, so we could possibly see a new game from the creator for the handheld device.

    will it be too much to ask for current gen to do something like saga frontier 2 again? love those waterpainting environment back then

    • Warboss Aohd

      i’m with you, Saga Frontier 2 had some of the greatest artwork and music!

    • brostar

      For consoles? Dream on. Seeing that on Vita or 3DS is more likely.

      • echokanon

        yeah, consoles should be hardly possible but handheld should still work fine…

    • Audie Bakerson

      No it isn’t, the current generation loves linear gameplay….

      But yeah, graphics wise, I can see pre-rendered backgrounds being friendly to the 3D effect.

  • Thanks for the early heads up.

  • Hope… to announce… in two years… Yeah, ok, thanks for letting us know.

  • Arcana Drill

    Woaw this is great news! i tought that SE was forgotten their other IPs, i hope that this sells well and that many others games from different IPs come.

  • SaGa + US LOCALIZATION please.

  • Ric Vazquez

    My body would be ready, if it was certain that the west is getting this “new game for 3ds”.

  • epy

    2 more years to develop a mobile game? Square Enix is slow with even those? What? It could be for the 3DS you say? Nope, not getting my hopes up.

    • In two years, we will be getting the 4DS.

      • Shady Shariest

        And Wii Wii.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Safe to say Kenji Ito is involved? Absolutely love his music. Looking forward to this ^_^

  • Zind Keeper

    Man, we haven’t had a good SaGa game in years here. Please bring it on over here when it’s time.

  • HellMuT

    Thankfully I would be able to play it if it were on the 3DS, but I would love it if it were on a console (or maybe PC). I hope Kenji Ito is still doing the soundtrack. I still listen to Saga Frontier and Romancing Saga.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Two years… that timeline gives me hope.
