A New Chapter Is About to Unfold in the SaGa Series! Scarlet Grace Begins Dec 15th!



SaGa: Scarlet Grace
PlayStation®Vita | Genre: RPG
Release date: Dec 15, 2016 


Square Enix will be adding a new entry into their long running SaGa series this December with their upcoming title "SaGa: Scarlet Grace". Character designer Tomomi Kobayashi and sound composer Keiji Ito, both veteran creators of the series, return to bring you this new installment of the series. 

Set decades after the defeat of an evil god known as the Firebringer, the world remains in a state of chaos. Very few remain who remember the era where the empire stood against the demons in a war that rage for a thousand years. Now a new unseen threat is on the rise , but just as that evil approaches, a new hero will rise to face it.



Following on from previous SaGa games, Scartlet Grace continues and expands upon the series open Free World System gameplay. Where the story can dramatically change depending on the actions taken throughout the game. Everything from the main character you select to the simple conversation choices can make major differences in how the story plays out. 

There are four main characters to choose from:
  • Urpina - A cheerful young woman from a family of samurai nobility. Despite being a bit of an air head, she possess a strong sense of justice. 
  • Leonard - A quiet young farmer who sells his land, and leaves his home after a woman who collapsed in his village told him of the legendary city of Ai-khanoum.
  • Taria - A potter on a journey to discover the origins of the distortions occurring in the world that have begun to affect her pottery work.
  • Balmaint - A executioner journeying for justice. He travels the word in search of his former castle administrator to behead him seven times.


Each of them will have their own unique stories and situations to overcome. Along the way you'll be able to recruit many allies to accompany you on your journeys. Several will join you at the beginning and almost everyone you meet is a potential ally. The game's battle system will use a Condition Turn-base Battle system (similar to Final Fantasy X) and there won't be any random encounters or dungeons, instead all battles can be triggered on the over world. Boosts and bonuses can be gained depending on the set up of your 5-man party, and all characters will be able to use the nine weapon types available. 

Scarlet Sage will definitly suit those looking for a long, story-heavy RPG with its potential 30 to 60 hours of game play with all the story possible and its Free World gameplay would be a great change of pace from other RPGs.

The game releases in Japan on Dec 15, 2016, pre-orders are now available. There have been no official announcements regarding a western releases as of yet.
