SaGa Collection

Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: JRPG Retrospective

Final Fantasy & Dragon Quest are surely the most renowned IPs created by Squaresoft in the 80s; but during the decades this company brought us many other interesting (and sometimes quite obscure) titles such as Aliens: Alien 2 for MSX, Square no Tom Sawyer for Famicom, or Suishō no Dragon for Famicom Disk System that was also the first game which included some anime scenes created for the occasion from Sunrise.

By the way, after them, Squaresoft tried to innovate the world of JRPG with the creation of Makai Toushi SaGa better known outside Japan as Final Fantasy Legend. Born from the brilliant mind of Akitoshi Kawazu; Makai Toushi SaGa is the successful attempt to bring on console the mechanics who made Dungeons & Dragons so popular worldwide. Including turn-based battles, nonlinear stories, action statistics, and an extremely free characters’ customization system; SaGa was an actual bet not only for Kawazu-san but for the whole company.

All for one!

Composed by 14 episodes, through 30 years of glorious history; SaGa has appeared on the most successful game machines… from Gameboy to PlayStation 4 passing through Super Famicom, PSX, and also mobile devices. Selling more than 2 million copies worldwide; the first chapter has been voted as one of the best video games of all time in Famitsu’s “All-Time Top 100” poll.

Due to its popularity SaGa crossed the digital gaming world reach the worlds of manga and theatrical productions. In fact, Japanese fans could relive these adventures from a live perspective by watching wonderful live adaptations like SaGa THE STAGE: Shichi Eiyū no Kikan or Romancing SaGa THE STAGE: Roānu ga Moeru Hi.
