If you’re a fan of JRPGs, this one’s for you.

One of the true greats of the genre - Romancing SaGa 3 - is out now for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Windows 10, Steam, the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Originally released back in 1995, this new version of the game has been rebuilt for modern consoles and smartphones.

The game’s been completely renewed with optimized graphics. The designers have created stunning brand-new pixel art for elements like backgrounds, and it also features brand new content, updated controls and more.

What is Romancing SaGa 3?

Romancing SaGa is an RPG that does things a little differently. It features a unique free-form scenario system that lets you experience a different narrative depending on which character you choose… and the decisions you make during their adventure.

There are eight heroes available:

  • Ellen Carson - an active and lively woman. In spite of her beautiful looks, her strength is second to none.

  • Sarah Carson - shy, introverted and sister to Ellen. She embarks on a journey to find her strength and independence.

  • Monika Ausbach - an exceptionally strong-willed and compassionate noblewoman who loves her brother above all else.

  • Mikhail Ausbach von Loanne - The marquis of Loanne and older brother to Monika. He is renowned for his leadership and political know-how.

  • Katarina Laurand - A calm, collected swordswoman who works as guard and caretaker to Monika.

  • Julian Nord - a childhood friend of Ellen and Sarah who is asked to join the Princess Guard - a group who protect Monika Ausbach.

  • Thomas Bent - a descendent of the prestigious Bent family, Thomas is greatly talented in matters of business.

  • Khalid - a wandering swordsman with a noble past. His prowess with a blade have earned him the nickname Tornado.

So that’s eight different characters, with eight different narratives. And because your choices during their adventures affect how they play out, you can get a new story, even if you pick the same protagonist!

That’s not the only inspired thing in the game - in fact, inspiration’s a big deal in the impressively deep combat system.

Battles are turn-based, and everything from the setup of your party to their positioning can have a dramatic effect on your performance in battle.

Every time a character attacks, there’s a chance they’ll be hit with a sudden flash of inspiration. If that happens, they’ll learn a new ability or attack - and even sometimes dodge the enemy’s strike!
