Square Enix has announced that Romancing SaGa 3 and SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions will be coming to Android in the West. Both games have never been available with an official English translation, so this will be the first time many get to experience these RPGs. Romancing SaGa 3 will offer a brand-new HD remaster that comes with new dungeons as well as a game+ mode, and SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions will provide an enhanced version of the original title from 2016.

The above trailer covers both Romancing SaGa 3 and SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions, so if you'd like to get a good look at what to expect from each title, then you should give it a watch. It's quite clear that Romancing SaGa 3's graphics are much improved over the original's, and it would appear that Square Enix went with pixel-based graphics instead of opting for whatever the heck they did to Final Fantasy VI. As for SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions, the differences from the original are a little harder to pick up on, though Square does mention that it's an enhanced edition, but sadly no other details were offered. It's also unknown when these titles will launch on Android, or at what prices, so hopefully more information will come to light in the future.

Romancing SaGa 3 and SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions coming to Android this year

This past E3 we learned that Square Enix would bring both Romancing SaGa 3 and SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions to Android with English translations in tow. Thanks to a press release published today, it's now clear that Romancing SaGa 3 is scheduled to land on November 11, 2019, and SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions will arrive shortly after on December 3. Apparently, both titles have been reworked, which means you can expect new content, optimized graphics, and updated gameplay controls.

If you'd like to get a closer look at what to expect from Romancing SaGa 3, a new trailer was published on YouTube this morning, which you can view below.

Sadly there's no trailer for the reworked version of SaGa: Scarlet Grace Ambitions, though we do know that it's an enhanced version of the 2016 title. Updated graphics are expected, as well as new voice-overs and two new characters that never made an appearance in the original release.

All in all, it's nice to know that Square Enix plans to bring both games to Android before the year is out, and while monetization has yet to be announced, I have a good feeling that both titles will arrive on the Play Store as premium releases.
