LOS ANGELES (May 26, 2016) – Square Enix’s RPG classic Romancing SaGa 2 makes its debut on Western shores for the first time on iOS and Android devices. While maintaining the feel of the original 1993 release, the second entry in the beloved Romancing SaGa series has been fully revamped for mobile devices with updated background and battle graphics, optimized touch screen controls and an auto-save feature to support on-the-go play, anywhere at any time. Now, a new generation of gamers can experience Romancing SaGa 2 with new classes, original dungeons and the “New Game+” function allows players to carry over character attributes and items into a brand new game, enabling them to enjoy the story and obtain items they may have missed, or save lands and companions that were sacrificed originally.
Romancing SaGa 2 enables players the ability to freely explore with freeform scenarios, and fuses it with the new imperial succession system that provides players the ability to adventure while taking command of a variety of protagonists and experience the history of a nation as it grows and changes. Additionally, the game introduced what has now become classic gameplay features of the SaGa series. Adventurers can learn new techniques with the Glimmers feature by using weapons and martial arts in battle, and also utilize Battle Formations to vary the attributes of characters depending on where they are placed within a particular formation.
