SaGa Creator Says To Wait A Little Longer For Details On The 25th Anniversary Game

This December, the SaGa series celebrates its 25th anniversary, and series creator Akitoshi Kawazu announced a few months ago that he hopes to announce a new game within the next two years.

 

Kawazu recently shared an update on Twitter for fans waiting on new details for the upcoming game announcement.

 

Game Jouhou reports that Kawazu previously said “Please wait until the end of Spring for details regarding the SaGa series’ [new] game. My apologies,” on Twitter back in February. Now that the Summer is near, he recently shared an update about his previous statement.

 

 

“Although I said ‘near the end of Spring,’ it’s already June now, and we’ve yet to announce anything,” Kawazu tweeted. “We’re experiencing various delays, and I apologize. We’re moving forward little at a time, so please wait just a little longer.”

 

Square Enix also celebrated the SaGa series earlier this year with a collaboration project with Saga prefecture of Japan, where we got to see series illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi work her magic with her artwork on traditional Saga-style porcelain plates.

 

More details on the new Saga game will likely be shared sometime this Summer.

    Saga prefecture. Of course. heh

    I wonder if they’ll do the unveiling there as well?

    • ishyg

      I suddenly remember that scene from Haganai.

  • Warukyure

    Please be excited!

    …about a possible cellphone/web-browser game for one of your favourite series!

    Maybe not, but with S-E’s record, I’d be worried.

    • Kelohmello

      No that’s exactly what I expected. I’m completely prepared for complete dissappointment.

    • Hound

      Cell Phone SaGa I (of VI). Featuring the kind of money-making transactions that’ll make you look back on All the Bravest and Dungeon Keeper mobile with fondness and yearning. A new era has arrived!

    • DesmaX

      If it’s like Rise of Mana, no problem. That game looks cool

    • Kenny Loh

      Yeah, S-E’s bad record, really hard to not making us worry if we are S-E fans, good thing is i am not that into S-E anymore and more as bandai namco fan after all the disaster news of S-E lol

  • Hound

    Delays with a “SaGa” game? I wonder if King is to blame for their obnoxious copyright and trigger-happy suing thanks to their trademark of the word “Saga” for video games.

    • yellowmage

      That’s what the capital G is for! Why do you think Unlimited was so utterly awful?

    Ugh, I’m expecting disappointment.

    At best i’d hope for a complete Saga compillation for all consoles/handhelds and PC

  • Testsubject909

    Sir, I have waited for many years already. A bit more won’t kill me.

    Just… Don’t make it on mobile.

    Edit: Or browser.

  • Dystopiq

    I predict it will be mobile. Social. Japan Only. SaGa is niche in America. The last game was on PS2 and it bombed.

  • Warboss Aohd

    ‘gets on knees and prays’

    Don’t be a mobile or browser game, don’t be a mobile or browser game.

  • Zero_Destiny

    Honestly, I’m still just holding out that we’ll get Final Fantasy Legend I-III (SaGa I-III) on the eShop Virtual Console one day. >____<

    *keeps dreaming* Come on, Square Enix, so many awesome back catalogue games need re-releases.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Agreed.

    Don’t be on cell phones. Don’t be a card game. Don’t be a slot/pachinko game. Don’t be an MMO.
