Saga Frontier Remastered is one of the projects celebrating the 30th anniversary of the series. Other projects include the Collection of SaGa remasters on Nintendo Switch. Lastly, these past few years, Romancing SaGa 2 and 3 were both remastered as well. They’re masterpieces you should definitely try out. Plus, I’d recommend starting with Romancing SaGa 3 as it’s easier, and the games are unrelated story wise.
Romancing SaGa Re univerSe is also out in English now. It’s an extremely player friendly gacha game and you should definitely try it out if you’re a fan of the series.
