During the Nintendo Direct, Square Enix took the opportunity to confirm the release date for SaGa Frontier Remastered, which is scheduled to come out on various platforms, namely the PlayStation 4, Switch, PC and smartphones. Mark your calendars, as the RPG will be out on 15 April 2021. It is worth noting that the game originally came out in Japan back on 11 July 1997, spawning several titles as part of a larger RPG franchise.
While this is a remaster and not a full-fledged remake, there are some tweaks this time around in SaGa Frontier Remastered, as Fuse will be added as a playable character, taking the number of characters to eight. Blue, Asellus, Lute, Red, Riki, T260G and Emelia will be making their return as well, of course Everyone will still be getting their own story and endings, with Asselus getting new, never-seen-before events included for the full experience. The graphics have been enhanced considerably too, with character, monsters and backgrounds getting spruce up with higher resolutions. The menu has also been reworked to make it easier for users to read. The gameplay remains largely unchanged, but as with all Square Enix remasters, there are the addition of various functionalities such as double speed and other toggles to make the game easier to play.
