SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS features updates the original game enhanced graphics, character voiceovers, new skills to learn and even additional story, making it the definitive way to play the game.

Read on for all the details, or to start playing, here’s how you can get the game:

What is SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS?

SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS is an RPG that’s all about choice.

It’s set in a world full of conflict and intrigue. The Firebringer, a fallen god and bane of humanity, wrought havoc on the planet. To survive, mankind built an Empire with one goal: defend humanity from this wicked creature.

But now, after a millennium of battle, the Firebringer has been defeated. Left without a unifying purpose, the Empire falls to rebellion. Amid the chaos, four adventurers set out on journeys that will change them and the world.

As for where those journeys take them… that really depends on you. The Free Scenario System has become a fundamental part of the SaGa series. It featured in the recently released Romancing SaGa 3, and it’s out in full force here too.

This system means that there’s no single fixed narrative in the game - instead, your specific adventure changes depending on who you choose to play as, and the decisions you make during their adventure.

As a result, the story you experience could very well be very different to mine. What’s more, it strongly rewards a second, third or even fourth playthrough - and beyond. Honestly, few RPGs are as replayable as this.

Who are the characters of SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS?

At the start of SaGa SCARLET GRACE: AMBITIONS, you’ll choose between four characters. Each has their own distinct story, and these narratives can go in different directions depending on what you do.

The four core playable heroes are:

  • Urpina - the daughter of the noble Julanius family. Also known as the House of Swords, her family is considered to the head of the Empire’s four great warrior houses. When her home is attacked, and her family threatened, she takes up arms to defend them.

  • Leonard - a farmer from Yaxart - a frontier are far from the heart of the Empire. One day he helps a dying woman who collapses on his farm. The event sends him on a path of danger and self-discovery.

  • Balmaint - the legal executioner of Castle Kohan of Provincia Kei. A somewhat… unusual day on the job leaves him with a sense of unfinished business, and he sets off on a journey around the world to complete it.

  • Taria - a ceramicist with a tumultuous past. Her pottery reveals disturbances in the world, and she resolves to investigate the source of the problems.

As well as these fascinating folk, you’ll be able to build a party to support them. There are more than 70 potential allies - and who you recruit will depend on your main character and what you make them do.
