Fans of classic Fire Emblem have a reason to rejoice today, as Dangen Entertainment is bringing a treat to Steam in English, Vestaria Saga by Shouzou Kaga.

If you’re unfamiliar with Kaga-san’s work, he was at the helm of development of the Fire Emblem series since the very beginning and until the release of  Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 in 1999.

The game will also feature music by Hiroto Saitoh, known for many classic games like Super Schwarzschild and Power Dolls.

The game will release in 2019, but a demo is coming soon. Actually, it’s so soon that the trailer mentions that it can be downloaded today, even if it isn’t available yet at the moment of this writing.

In the meanwhile, you can read about the story and features below, courtesy of the game’s Steam page, that is already open.

Story

Vestaria Saga tells the story of international conflict between a powerful empire, and a small coastal kingdom. When an imperial ship is set ablaze near the port of Meleda, it sparks a cascade of events that thrusts young warrior Zadrian into a war for the soul and future of his kingdom. On the run from a vicious imperial force and short on allies, Zade and his small band of knights must make difficult decisions to ensure that Meleda’s princess, and the very future of its lineage, remain intact.

However, not everything is as it seems, and forces in the dark corners of the continent conspire. The stage is set, and the pieces have begun to move.

Gameplay

Vestaria Saga is a classically styled Strategy RPG, where positioning, movement, and even weaponry, are paramount to success. Move your heavily armed units around a classic styled grid-based map and engage pirates, rebels, monsters, imperial soldiers, and anyone else that stands in your way.

Features

  • An enthralling campaign of espionage, international intrigue, and war written by veterans of the genre.
  • Classically Styled Strategy RPG gameplay on a grid-based map.
  • Two finely tuned difficulty modes to accommodate both strategy veterans and newcomers.
  • A full English script translated from the original Japanese by the best in the business.
  • Full support for both USB controllers and keyboard & mouse.
