Romancing SaGa, the latest in the legendary SaGa series, introduces a host of all-new game play elements and the most expansive story yet.
A thousand years ago Saruin was imprisoned. Now the barriers are weakening, and his foreboding shadow threatens to swallow the world of Mardias once again. Who will rid the world of Saruin's scourge? The player must decide.
Occupying a prominent place in the story, the mysterious minstrel sometimes guides the party to adventure, and at other times shields them from shadow. And occasionally he forces upon them grave choices.
Minstrel Song brings back the free-roaming scenario system, allowing for the ultimate in open-ended adventuring. Choosing between eight playable characters, a variety of plots develop, with each action the player takes affecting the world of Mardias.
The character and background design is rendered with vivid 3D graphics, making the magnificent realm of Mardias a truly enjoyable place to explore. Events and side quests come alive as still images morph dramatically into cut scenes and mini-movies with the use of “sketch motion.” This combination of technology and creative vision comes together to produce a world of wonder, filled with charming characters and inviting vistas.
