Square Enix Working on Bringing Romancing SaGa 2 for PS Vita to the West

A remake of the 1993 title, Square Enix’s Romancing SaGa 2 is in the works for Sony’s PlayStation Vita. Over on Twitter, series creator Akitoshi Kawazu asked fans to be patient but didn’t reveal when he expects the game to be out on the handheld.

“Hello world!” he said. “We’ve released Romancing SaGa 2 English version on iPhone/Android. For PSVita, we’re working now. I want your patience, please.”

The iOS and Android versions only became available this past Thursday, and cost $17.99. 

In case you missed it, Romancing SaGa 2‘s story is as follows:

The Legend of the Seven Heroes.

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…

We’ll update our readers when we have a release date.
