Those who play the demo on the Nintendo Switch will get to play as Ameya. Her story focuses on her double life as a normal student and a witch-in-training. However, she loses her magic right before her witch-in-training graduation exam, forcing her to go on an adventure to get it back.

Those on the PS4 and PS5 will play as Tsunanori Mido. He is a member of the prestigious Mido family and can control animated puppets, or kugutsu. He and his kugutsu must travel to various worlds to seek four elemental spirits and restore order.

These three in the demo are not the only protagonists that you’ll be able to play as in the final version of SaGa Emerald Beyond.
