Here’s What Mr. S Does in SaGa Emerald Beyond

A notable SaGa series character named Mr. S will appear in SaGa Emerald Beyond, and Square Enix shared new screenshots and insights into what he does in-game. Someone could take on Mr. S’ Trials or essentially use him as a move tutor.

One part of the benefits tied to Mr. S involves his trials. These give you items and point rewards if you finish them. The screenshots show one situation where a player with a Trial Rank of 1 takes on the 150% Combo Rate, Clean Sweep, and Preemptive Execution trials. After completing them, the person gets an Ironstone, five Spirit Stones, and four Trial Point Rewards.

The other screenshots show Mr. S’ Tutelage option. Someone can set him as a tutor for characters to help them learn abilities. This way even if they aren’t with us when we go into fights, they still master skills and can then become tutors for them. So in the one screenshot, we see how under Mr. S, his pupils could get a “license” for an ability after the player goes through a certain number of battles. The other screen shows the Tutelage Regimen that reveals which skills the character would learn.

Here are the SaGa Emerald Beyond screenshots showing the character in action:

As a reminder, Mr. S is a SaGa series staple and the most notable past appearance is as the player’s teacher in Final Fantasy Legend II (SaGa 2: Hihou Densetsu). People could see him and play that entry most recently in Collection of Saga on the Switch, PC, and mobile devices. 

SaGa Emerald Beyond is in development and will head to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices on April 25, 2024. The demo is available now on the PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC.
