Square Enix Remastering Romancing SaGa 3 For Vita, iOS, and Android

The publisher remasters one of its classic games.

News by Mike Williams, .

Square Enix announced today a remastered version of Romancing SaGa 3. The remaster will be heading to PlayStation Vita, iOS, and Android in Japan. Sadly, no release date or window was given for its domestic release, let alone a hopeful international one.

Romancing SaGa 3's remaster will attempt to keep the same visual style as the Super Famicom game, but offer updated graphics for character portraits, backgrounds, menus, and more. Square Enix is also reportedly working on improved controls.

This is the second Romancing SaGa game coming to PlayStation Vita and smartphones, as Square Enix has already released Romancing SaGa 2 on the same platforms in Japan. You can expect the SaGa 3 port to share similar upgrades. Unfortunately, the Vita port of Romancing SaGa 2 has not made it to the West alongside its smartphone counterparts, even in purely digital form. Series creator Akitoshi Kawazu announced a delay of the English version back in December.

"The English version of Romancing SaGa 2 on PSVita has some problems. We need a few more months. I ask for your patience, please," Kawazu said on Twitter.

Romancing SaGa 3 was originally released on Super Famicom back in 1995, but never headed stateside. The first SaGa we received in North America was SaGa Frontier for PlayStation.

    There is hope, given that we got an English version of Romancing SaGa 2. Fingers crossed!

    I have to wonder, will they finish the game this time?
    Super Famicom version of RS3 was really lacking in polish, even for a Kawazu game.

    Love Romancing Saga for PS2. I only beat it once with Hawke.

    I am one of the many still waiting for the English Vita release and wondering what the holdup is as they have a working Vita version in Japan AND a full English translation on smartdevices... Physical would be lovely but very unlikely, I don't want to play these on phones/tablets (see also Shin Megami Tensei which even worse is ios over here despite supposedly being a hacked GBA rom in an emulator so aj easy port)
