Square Enix recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the SaGa franchise with a collaboration event called “Romancing Saga,” along with Japan’s Saga Prefecture. During the event, they showed several traditional plates featuring artwork by series illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi. What would go best with SaGa-style plates, you ask? SaGa-themed food, of course!
It wouldn’t be a party with a bunch of empty plates, so Square Enix put together a special themed menu for the SaGa series and Saga prefecture, called “Romancing Saga Temptations”. Check out some of the food they had at the event!
Here’s the “Captain Hawke’s Pirate-style Fedelni” (Romancing SaGa) that even has a bird-shaped topping, and “Sif’s Valhalland Type Cream Pasta” (Romancing SaGa).
To the left are yummy meat buns called “Saga’s Treasure Legend,” a play on words for SaGa 2: The Treasure Legend (Japanese title of Final Fantasy Legend II,) and the “Imperial Throne Succeeding Salad” that has slices of lotus root.
Last but not least, we got some desserts named after SaGa places with the “Margmel” (Romancing SaGa 2) orange and custard cream tart cake, and the strawberry tiramisu “Shrike” (SaGa Frontier).
