With the SaGa series 25th anniversary coming up, Square Enix have been reminding people about it with themed events and a new game that is in the works. Meanwhile, it’s been 22 years since the release of Romancing SaGa specifically, and 4Gamer shares details on a new remastered soundtrack Square are putting out.

The album, titled Romancing SaGa: The Original Soundtrack Remaster, features 38 tracks from the Super Nintendo classic that were originally composed by Kenji Ito. For the remastered album, he also worked alongside fellow composer Nobuo Uematsu.

 

Additionally, 4Gamer reports that Romancing SaGa 2 and Romancing SaGa 3 will also get remastered original soundtracks respectively on July 16 and August 20, 2014.

 

Romancing SaGa: The Original Soundtrack Remaster costs 2,300 yen (plus tax) and you can also check out samples of it on the bottom of the page on official website.

 

Note: If you’re curious about what’s going on on that page, the guy on the right says that he got the soundtrack, and you’re left with three choices of “I don’t care,” “I’ll take it even if it means killing you,” and “please give it to me!!” Choose the second option (殺してでもうばいとる) in order to access the track samples.

    I love this version of Sewers, track 22 (coincidentally lol). Even though the remake OST that is Minstrel Song exists, I still find the original Romancing SaGa OST charming in its own way.
    Still debating if I should pay more monies for that 20th anniversary boxset I missed out on… hmmm…

    • Goufunaki

      I love my box set. I missed out on some of the individual soundtracks, so it was nice to get all of them in one package.

      No jewel cases or special packaging like the original releases, but the 20th anniversary box you put together is pretty neat to open it up like a flip book, or to slide the entire set out.

        I saw that boxset on RPGfan. I’m not really an OST collector (I only have Sample CDs from preorders) but if I were, I would definitely be all over that set. It’s gorgeous AND definitive.

    Looking forward to the Romancing Saga 3 remaster. That games OST was sick.

  • Demeanor

    Wow, I just learned that the brutal game I know and loved from the PS2 era was actually a REMAKE of an older title… :O

    If you’re into Kenji Itou’s battle themes and somehow missed the two SaGa Battle Arrange albums, get them. Like, right now.
