The SaGa orchestral concert will be held on July 31, 2021, and August 1, 2021, in Tokyo. Performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, the event will guest SaGa composer Kenji Ito and series creator Akitoshi Kawazu. The setlist includes songs from SaGa Frontier, Unlimited SaGa, Imperial SaGa, and SaGa Scarlet Grace.

For those who can’t attend the orchestral performance in person, the CD will provide all of the compositions pre-recorded in a single album. Kenji Ito has overseen the development of the arrangement album and has hand selected each of the recordings included.

The CD will feature tracks from the previously-mentioned SaGa series. Additionally, it will include songs from Final Fantasy Legend, the Romancing SaGa series, and Romancing SaGa Re;universe. Purchases from the Japanese Amazon store will also come with an exclusive enlarged version of the CD jacket. The full tracklist is currently unconfirmed.

The Orchestral SaGa CD will ship on July 28, 2021, and will cost $39.99. SaGa Frontier Remastered, the latest game in the SaGa franchise, is also currently available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile devices. Additionally, a new SaGa Destiny 8 arrangement album is also planned to release on August 11, 2021.
