Square Enix's Romancing SaGa 2 hits Xbox and Windows 10 with Xbox Play Anywhere

Launching with Xbox Play Anywhere support, Romancing SaGa 2 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:

A free scenario system—a hallmark of the SaGa series—enables the player to take command of a variety of protagonists along the line of imperial succession and experience the history of a nation as it grows and changes. This freedom of choice provides a compelling narrative that served as the cornerstone of the title's success on its initial release.

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.
