Romancing Saga 2 was one of the many Square Enix JRPGs that never saw a release outside of Japan. Originally released in 1993 on the Super Famicom, the game finally makes its long awaited debut as a smartphone release title for both iOS and Android devices on May 26th.

A look at the story for Romancing Saga 2:

The Legend of the Sven Heroes.

As demons from every dimension threatened to consume the land, Seven Heroes rose to banish the evils to whence they came. Yet they vanished without a trace before they could revel in their victory.

Tales of the seven—Kzinssie, Subier, Dantarg, Noel, Bokhohn, Rocbouquet, and Wagnas—were told around the world, and many clung to the belief that they would reappear to bring order to the world. People raised their voice in prayer with each successive blight, seeking succor and salvation.

Peace eventually embraced the land without the intervention of the seven, and their story faded into faerie tales.

Nations rose and fell until only a select few remembered the Seven Heroes and their deeds of valor.

Yet eventually the peace was shattered and dusty tomes describing the Seven Heroes were unearthed. Though they did come as prophesized…

RomSaga2-PSV-Smartphone-AnnSystem Details:

  • Glimmers: Using weapons and martial arts in battle occasionally enables the character to learn new techniques. A light bulb will flash over the character’s head when this occurs, indicating a new technique has been mastered and can be freely used from that point forward.
  • Battle Formations: The attributes of characters vary depending on where they are placed within a particular formation, and they may become more or less likely to be targeted by enemy attacks. When someone not of Avalonian blood ascends to the throne, speaking with soldiers at the training grounds may enable him or her to learn new formations.
  • Tempering and Concocting: New spells and techniques may be concocted and weapons tempered, and a university may even be constructed in Avalon itself. These and other such developments promote the growth of the Varennes Empire.
  • Imperial Succession: When the emperor passes on, whether through falling in combat or by the mere passage of time, the player may select a successor to the throne. The new emperor is able to use all the techniques and spells of the previous one. Thus, the royal line becomes stronger over time, and previously unachievable goals slowly come into reach.
  • Freeform Scenarios: Romancing SaGa 2 is an RPG with a dynamic freeform scenario system that enables the player to freely explore a variety of tales once the introductory event is over. Time passes and the world changes based on player actions.

Romancing Saga 2 will be available for $17.99.
