Romancing Saga 3 Remaster May Have "New Element" Added

Square Enix may boost the upcoming remaster of Romancing Saga 3 for PlayStation Vita and mobile.

Two weeks ago, Square Enix announced a remaster of Romancing Saga 3 for PlayStation Vita and mobile, bringing the classic RPG back on new platforms. Now it sounds like Square Enix may have more plans than a straight remaster. In an interview with 4Gamer (translated via Siliconera), Square Enix producer Masanori Ichikawa said the team may add something new to the project.

"Completely reproducing Romancing SaGa 3 is a given, but I'm thinking about adding some kind of new element to it," said Ichikawa. "And when I hear about Romancing SaGa 3 from Kawazu-san, we're talking new settings, episodes, and all kinds of stuff, so I begin seeing things in a completely different perspective."

"For example, when I learn about a 'character who suffered some kind of tragic fate, yet they continue fighting to save the world' it really makes me want to express that part to all the fans."

That kind of vague and odd, but Romancing Saga 3 getting a new lease on life is great, so additional content is no problem at all. There is currently no release window for the game and no indication of a Western release.
