Square Enix’s Akitoshi Kawazu Teases SaGa Frontier 2 Remastered

    "Please be patient."

    During the 40th Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe live stream, SaGa series creator Akitoshi Kawazu teases a potential release of SaGa Frontier 2 Remastered from Square Enix. This particular live stream celebrated the 25th anniversary of SaGa Frontier 2’s release. 

    SaGa Frontier 2 was released for the original PlayStation on April 1, 1999 in Japan, followed by North America on February 15, 2000 and PAL regions on March 22, 2000. The game would receive three re-issues in Japan, but the game was never re-released for newer platforms. Fortunately, a remaster may be on the way, following the successful SaGa Frontier Remastered release from April 15, 2021.

    “Rest Assured” While Waiting for SaGa Frontier 2 Remastered

    In a video message shown in the 40th Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe live stream, Kawazu teased that fans should wait a little longer for a remaster announcement. Although Kawazu can’t announce SaGa Frontier 2 Remastered at the moment, he assures that fans won’t be disappointed if they wait. 

    “However, this is not a remaster announcement, so please wait a little longer for that,” Kawazu said. “Honestly though, you won’t be disappointed if you wait, so you can rest assured. Please be patient.”

    In July 2022, Play-Asia listed SaGa Frontier 2 for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, causing speculation about the remaster. However, an official announcement was not made since then. 

    Here’s an overview of SaGa Frontier 2 from our previous coverage: 

    SaGa Frontier 2 introduces a complete renovation of the RPG genre. Traditional computer polygonal fixtures are replaced with lush, hand-drawn watercolor graphics supported by an awe-inspiring musical score. Blending both freedom and linearity, this title utilizes the Multi-Scenario System giving players unparalleled freedom in choosing which scenario they want to play while other scenarios crisscross with one another. Complementing this feature are three innovative battle modes: Duel, Team, and Strategic. Depending upon the model selected, the player can control an individual character, a team, or several units to fight in battles, bringing depth and precision to the combat sequences.
