Square Enix’s SaGa Franchise Gets A 25th Anniversary Website

By Ishaan . February 14, 2014 . 8:30am

Square Enix have erected a 25th anniversary website for the SaGa franchise. The site will go live on February 19th and appears to be hinting at a collaboration of some sort.

 

 

In January, SaGa series creator Akitoshi Kawazu shared at a concert: “I hope to be able to make an announcement of a new title within the next two years. Development itself is quietly in progress at the moment, but we’re not at the stage where we can make announcements at the moment.”

 

With that in mind, do note that this may not be the project Kawazu was referring to at the time, as it sounds like the next major SaGa game is fairly early in development.

    Please don’t be a mobile game, please don’t be a mobile game, PLEASE DON’T BE A MOBILE GAME

    • ZnTxn

      I want this too. But part of me is curious about what will happen if it’s a mobile game, you know, with the whole Saga trademark thing.

    • KiTA

      Actually… if they followed the Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light or Final Fantasy Dimensions formula, it might not be bad.

      I could see some really interesting mechanics in a PAD style game with the SaGa Monster Meat system, just as an example.

      • Monterossa

        LOL you mean each character saga will be a $5 DLC?

    • Ric Vazquez

      And please not a Japan only game

      • Γεώργιος Αρχαιοκαπηλίδης

        Since the Saga games for DS didn’t came out outside Japan I don’t see for this one being an exception. And to be honest the Saga series have never sold very well in the western market apart from the Game Boy games.

    MOBAGE!!

  • Ping92

    so King have not tried sueing them yet?

  • Paul Rodriguez

    It’ll be a mobile or browser game.

    In a perfect world, it would be a remake of SaGa Frontier for next-gen systems. Or maybe a portable version of Unlimited Saga with a friendly beginner mode. Or maybe a collection of the Romancing Saga titles. But, this isn’t a perfect world. It’ll probably be a card-collecting game for iOS that makes you pay as you play.

    • LaserVision

      Man i do remember people really hating Unlimited Saga ten years ago…

      • Zeonsilt

        Yes,Unlimited Saga(PS22003) was a failure in terms of…many things(personally,i really disliked battle system).After that failure,they dropped the series for 10+ years. /sadface
        p.s. Saga Frontier 12 on PS1 is awesome,though.

        • pekikuubik

          The only problem with the game is the Reel System to be honest. Had it just used a typical die, no-one would’ve minded its board game aesthetics/mechanics.

          Also, awesome soundtrack.

          • Amagidyne

            I always had more problems with the panels you used for levelling up to be honest, I’d get a few swords in a trio and some elements and a damn phobia panel would ruin it all.

            I found the reels less complicated once you’d sparked off a few upper level techniques, ’cause then you could time what you landed on.

            But yes, awesome OST, absolutely legendary.

    • ishyg

      The nostalgia, coupled with the fact that it isn’t a perfect world, brings tears to my eyes.

  • Goufunaki

    I hope they go all out for the next game. At the very least a quality 3ds/vita game would be nice.

  • Iyyuchtus

    I think the “X” looks like the one from Xenogears… hmmm…

  • LaserVision

    I can understand Kawazu not having any ready to show for the anniversary, but really the least SE could do is put SF1 and SF2 on PSN, right?

  • Hau To

    2014 is beginning to be a great year for me.

  • Zeonsilt

    There’s already Mobile SaGa(GREE) game,so this must be something else.
    My guess it’s for 3DS(95%) or PS3(5%).

  • pekikuubik

    Watch out, Square Enix. King will come after you if you even think about bringing a SaGa game to the West.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Please be a mobile game just so people can whine about nothing more. It gives them meaning.

  • Ren Yuumei

    its going to be for the cell phone calling it RIGHT NOW!

  • Testsubject909

    I would be hyped, but…
    *looks down at the other comments*
    Yeah. I think everyone figured the same thing.

  • Warboss Aohd

    i swear to Mork, if this is some zoggin’ mobile game.

  • Heropon

    Mobile game for sure

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    Saga Frontier on USA PSN please.

  • k.b.a.

    oh for the love of god just be good.

  • http://rokuso3.blogspot.com.es/ Victoria [Rokuso3]

    Collaboration with GREE.

  • Juliano C

    the symbol is the same of the Saga prefecture flag, maybe it will be some kind of show there?
    and by the site url and music looks like it is something related to Romancing Saga
