Square Enix's Romancing SaGa 2 hits Xbox and Windows 10 with Xbox Play Anywhere
Square Enix has brought one of its retro titles, Romancing SaGa 2, to Xbox One and Windows 10.
Launching with Xbox Play Anywhere support, Romancing SaGa 2 (opens in new tab) lets players take part in a part of the RPG series originally released in 1993 in Japanese only. With top-down visuals and a fantasy setting, Romancing SaGa 2 certainly fits the look of the era as well.
Romancing SaGa 2 takes place across several generations as players play as the rulers of the Varennes Empire in a struggle with "the Seven Heroes." The game has some unique aspects for players to check out as well. From the description:
Square Enix is best known for its Final Fantasy franchise, but Romancing SaGa 2 should serve as a solid way to scratch that nostalgia itch. Xbox Play Anywhere support means you only need to buy the game once to play it on Xbox One and Windows 10, and your cloud save will sync across platforms as well.
Romancing SaGa 2 is up for grabs now on the Microsoft Store for $20 at launch. It will later jump up to a standard price of $24.99.

R.Saga is a XPA title, it can be played on xboxes, it also runs on my Surface Pro & Alienware, it has high chance running on win10arm (surface foldable docking on my gamepad)... tbh, old-school JRPG generally has much faster paced battle system than modern ones imo. And they have lesser culture barrier.
