Since its release in November 1995, Romancing SaGa 3 has never released in the West but fans of the series rejoice, as series creator Akitoshi Kawazu revealed that Square Enix will make a western version of the classic RPG.
The info comes from Akitoshi Kawazu’s latest tweet, responding to a fan asking about an English version of Romancing SaGa 3:
We will make western version RS3. It will be after the Japanese version. But, at first, RS2 Vita for West. I want your patience, please. https://t.co/q9j1N0SP3J

The last we heard about Romancing SaGa 2’s English version on PS Vita, it was delayed back in December 2016. We haven’t heard much about it since the developer stated that they’ll need a few more months to fix some problems and finish it up, but it shouldn’t take that much longer.
As far as other Romancing SaGa 3 news goes, producer Masanori Ichikawa recently stated that he’d like to bring something new to Romancing SaGa 3’s upcoming remastered version, but it’ll be a little difficult since they’re working on it from scratch unlike Romancing SaGa 2 that had a mobile release from 2011.
In any case, it’s good to be able to cross out an English release for “something new,” especially for the fans that waited many years to finally get an official English release of the classic RPG.
Romancing SaGa 3’s remaster is in development for PlayStation Vita, iPhone, and Android.
