Square Enix announced the remaster and opened an official website back in March 2022. It will be a remastered version of Romancing SaGa Minstrel Song, which released for the PlayStation 2 back in 2005. Romancing SaGa Minstrel Song itself was a remake of Romancing SaGa for the SNES. The PS2 version replaced the 16-bit art style with 3D graphics.
Furthermore, in addition to higher resolution graphics, the upcoming remaster will feature an updated UI and a fast-forwarding mechanic that will make the game easier to play. The remaster will also add several dozen new high-level bosses for players to enjoy in the end-game. Some of these bosses appeared in the Nintendo Direct trailer above.
