Joining the growing number of Square Enix published IPs to receive mobile adaptations in recent years, the company has this week released Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe on the iOS App Store and Android Google Play Store. A completely new work rather than a remaster of a pre-existing game, this game sets out to combine “challenging and strategic” elements found in the SaGa series with easily accessible mobile gameplay and a gacha system.
Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe is set 300 years after the events of Romancing SaGa 3, featuring an original story albeit with familiar returning characters being weaved into the story. The game features turn-based RPG mechanics akin to earlier instalments in the franchise, and from what I can tell, with a bit more player involvement than similar Square Enix mobile RPG’s of this style.
With Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe receiving one million pre-registrations, players who download the game in the near future will be eligible for the following rewards:
- 9,000 Jewels and 40 Platinum Summon Tickets
- Two beloved characters from Romancing SaGa 3: Flurry (S) and Nora (A)
- 40 small Stamina Potions
Will this succeed in the western market or have its servers shut down quickly as was the case with Star Ocean: Anamnesis? Time shall tell.
