Nintendo Direct mini Software Maker Lineup 2020.8 " was held on August 26, 2020.
Among the many new information announced, I was particularly excited about the " Sa・Ga COLLECTION "!
I would like to explain what kind of title it will be and why I was so excited!
The origin of the "SaGa" series that continues to this day
Sa-Ga COLLECTION" will be the first complete port of the three games released for the Game Boy, " Mage Toushi Sa-Ga," "Sa-Ga 2: Legend of the Hidden Treasure," and "Sa-Ga 3: Master of Time and Space [Complete ]," and will be the 30th anniversary title of the "SaGa" series. It will be a commemorative title.
Furthermore, the three English versions of " FINAL FANTASY LEGEND " are also included in this title!
Since the first Game Boy RPG "Mage Toushi SaGa" was released in 1989, the series has been followed by "Saga Scarlet Grace," "Romancing Saga Re-Universe," and "Saga: The Last Airbender" in video games.
The collaboration with Saga Prefecture and the stage adaptation of the game make it a great title not only for fans, but also for the younger generation who were not born when the game was released.
We're sure some of you are wondering what the game is all about, so here's the intro!
Mage Toushi Sa-Ga
Once upon a time, four worlds created by God were connected by a single tower.
There was a legend among the people living there.
There is a paradise on top of the tower.
Another adventurer is about to set out on a journey to this legendary paradise.
SaGa 2: The Legend of the Hidden Treasure
Hidden treasures.... They are the legacy left by the gods who created the world.
Numerous battles took place over these hidden treasures, and those who survived gained great power and began to call themselves new gods.
The winners gained great power and began to call themselves new gods.
Sa-Ga 3: Champion of Time and Space [Complete].
Thousands of years ago, the god "Saul" invaded from another dimension
He sealed the gods who invaded from another dimension with the legendary fighter "Stethros".
The long-lasting peace that followed was broken by the appearance of a mysterious "water bottle.
An adventure that spans the present, past and future begins.
Just reading this makes me excited!
I, who have played the original version, would like to talk about this and that, but spoilers are strictly forbidden for those playing for the first time !
They are all masterpieces, so please go play them!
