Japan's been holding out on us
A title Western gamers never thought they'd see localized is finally getting that treatment. After twenty-three long years of waiting, Romancing SaGa 2 is finally making its way outside of Japan. Unfortunately for fans of classic gaming consoles, we won't be seeing the 1993 Super Famicom release making its way to Super Nintendo systems, but we'll be seeing the title nonetheless. Square Enix announced today that the title will be making its way across the world "soon" for iOS and Android devices.
Originally released in 1993, Romancing SaGa 2 was a Japan exclusive until now. The game has since been remastered for mobile devices and was released on March 24 in its home country. Although the game has been confirmed for a global release, Square Enix stopped shy of giving us a release date or window. Hopefully SaGa fans don't have to wait like PC gamers eagerly awaiting the arrival of Final Fantasy IX on Steam.
Japanese gamers can also pick up Romancing SaGa 2 for the PlayStation Vita, but plans for that release to get localized weren't announced. Luckily for Vita gamers, iOS and Android devices are plentiful and there's a good chance they already have one or more mobile device. Keep an eye out on the App Store and Google Play Store, as Romancing SaGa 2 is coming to a mobile device near you soon.
