SaGa games

Square-Enix’s E3 2019 press conference had a couple of neat surprises for fans of the SaGa series: both Romancing SaGa 3 and SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions are headed to Europe and North America “soon” (of course, they will also be released in Japan).

Here’s the trailer for both games:

And here’s details about each game:

Romancing SaGa 3

The Rise of Morastrum–an event where the dark star blocks out the sun–threatens the very existence of our world. All born in that year are doomed to perish before its end. However, during the first Rise of Morastrum 600 years ago, a sole child did survive. He came to be known as the Archfiend, leading the world to ruins. Another 300 years passed, and again a child defied fate. She came to be known as the Matriarch, defeating the evil and bringing peace back to the world. Now, 300 years later, the Rise of Morastrum strikes again, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Will there be another child of destiny? Will the child be righteous, evil, or another force that the world cannot fathom?

The classic 1995 RPG finally comes west in a remastered version! Your choices matter—from your choice of hero, to branching story paths, to recruiting party members, to which skills you’ll develop. Every game, a new adventure!

SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions

The Firebringer, a fallen god and bane of humanity, has wrought havoc on the world since his exile. Mankind constructed an Empire with a singular purpose: engage the Firebringer and his fiends in battle to defend humanity. After a millennium of fighting, the Firebringer has finally been defeated, and the Empire is left without purpose, spurring rebellion. With the fate of the world uncertain, follow the journey of four unique heroes as they call on their might and set out to carve a new future.

  • The composition of your group affects your abilities and impacts your tactics. The choices you make will define your legacy!

Final Fantasy VIII Remaster

In the past few months, Square-Enix released a ton of Final Fantasy games on Nintendo Switch: Final Fantasy VII Remaster, Final Fantasy IX Remaster, Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. But there’s one game that was surprisingly missing from that line-up: Final Fantasy VIII Remaster.

And that very game was announced for the usual platforms (including the Nintendo Switch) during Square-Enix’s press conference at E3 2019. It will be released later this year worldwide.

Here’s a trailer:

Circuit Superstars

During their E3 2019 press conference, Square-Enix announced another game as part of their Square-Enix Collective initiative: Circuit Superstars. It’s an arcade racing game, but with a more realistic driving model than you would expect for this kind of game. It will be released next year, in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:

Circuit Superstars combines arcade-style racing with a more realistic driving model that enables new players to jump in and race, but sets a high skill ceiling for serious players looking to set the fastest laps possible. It will feature a range of on- and off-road racing categories – from rally, GT, classic cars and even trucks – all in a unique and gorgeous visual style.

Circuit Superstars (Switch) comes out in 2020 in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
