Square Enix does not do these things - yet - but maybe they plan to enter the world of VC. Is that possible?

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

I'd say there is a strong possibility of it appearing on the DS, wouldn't count out the VC though.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

Don't get your hopes up. This is simply a remake for mobile phones. (Japan only) Confirmed here: http://www.square-enix.co.jp/party07/titles/saga/

SaGa is not popular enough in non-Japanese markets to merit any localized remake titles. (Minstrel Song being a rare exception)

Your right it's only been developed for mobile phones in japan, but dont think that it's a lame game because it is so, the graphics look amazing. It was shown at the SE party. Japanese mobile phone technology is ahead of our by some bit, we are probally 2 years behind. [LS]

Don't get me wrong about my above comment -- Makai Toushi is actually my favorite game. The Mobile remake in question is basically just a port of the WonderSwan Color version. The only changes I've noticed so far is that the menus are adapted to have less detail and fit the phone's native resolution.

But as far as the series goes, it's just not for Western audiences. Most every SaGa game to date has been met with terrible reviews.
