The beloved JRPG classic Romancing SaGa 2 launches on PS4 and PS Vita next week. First appearing in 1993, the original game followed players in their battle against the Seven Heroes, watching as the history of a nation was forged through a line of succession. The remake features enhanced visuals and audio, new character classes, an additional dungeon, and a New Game + mode (always a personal favorite).
To celebrate the upcoming return of Romancing SaGa 2, we reached out to the original director Akitoshi Kawazu — the creator of the SaGa series and veteran designer of the first Final Fantasy. Kawazu-san shared his memories of the development process nearly three decades prior, and what he hopes to see in the future.
We’re finally back! On today’s show, Ryan and Justin return to the studio after a busy month leading into Paris Games Week. With the hustle and bustle behind them, Justin shares his final thoughts on the showcase, from the delightful surprise of Spelunky 2 to the gorgeous new story told in Concrete Genie.
