SaGa Emerald Beyond Mechs Return With Diva No 5 Explained

SaGa Franchise General Director Akitoshi Kawazu and Localization Director Neil Broadley recently starred in a new SaGa Emerald Beyond video that explained why the mechs race will return with Diva No 5 in the game. This comes after SaGa Scarlet Grace didn’t feature the species as a race.

Here’s what Kawazu had to say about the inclusion of mechs in SaGa Emerald Beyond:

In our previous game, SaGa Scarlet Grace, players were only able to control human characters. For this game, we wanted players to experience a variety of races, and of course that includes mechs with their various defining features. It goes without saying that they come with their own mech-specific gameplay and story elements. In putting mechs in the game, we would be remiss not to include a mech protagonist as well. 

Kawazu went on to explain that since she is a mech, Diva No 5’s voice loss “is equivalent to losing her purpose in life.” This happened to her after she sang a particular song she wasn’t “supposed” to sing.

In case you missed it, here is the Diva No 5 trailer that focuses on the SaGa Emerald Beyond character.

Past videos have looked at other leads that appear in this entry. For example, one looked at the duo Bonnie and Formina. Another starred the magical girl-like heroine Ameya. Siugnas, who has vampiric traits, appeared in another. We’ll also play as a puppeteer person named Tsunanori Mido.

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.
