Romancing SaGa 2, originally released only in Japan in 1993, has been completely remastered and now receives its first ever official English translation!
■No two players will experience the story in the same way■
The SaGa series is one of Square Enix’s most beloved. The first three titles were originally branded overseas under the “FINAL FANTASY LEGEND” moniker , and garnered critical acclaim for their complex yet compelling combat system.
Romancing SaGa 2 takes the varied gameplay of other entries in the series and combines it with an open-ended free-form scenario system whose story is as vast as the world in which it plays out. The player takes the role of a succession of emperors, painting the history of the world with each and every action.
Familiar series hallmarks such as formations and glimmers make a return in this unique title.
It all begins with the song of a lone bard in a bustling pub.
Great nations such as the Varennes Empire, which had once ensured peace throughout the world, stagnated and atrophied over the course of centuries, and sinister forces started emerging in outlying areas.
Ere long, peace spiraled into war and the common folk spoke in hushed words of the Seven Heroes—historical figures who saved the world once and who, it was hoped, would do so again.
▷New classes: diviner and ninja
▷UI specifically designed for smartphones
Android 4.2.2 or above recommended.
Not compatible with all devices.
Romancing SaGa 2 APK Version History

Never played the original and now I can't wait for 3 to come out. Love everything but the controls when moving. If they were more reactive like some of the FF remakes or at least were more sensitive to directional movement - the game would be phenomenal. Could just be on my LG G6 though. Full Review

I am not familiar with the series and this is my first game. I am blown away by this game. It is a completely different experience than what I am used to. The battle system has a lot of depth for turn-based. The various mechanics are intriguing. The art design is vibrant. The on-screen controls are unobtrusive. Romancing SaGa is a great addition to anyone's library. Full Review

This game has been a ton of fun, I have enjoyed every bit of the 20+ hours I have put into it. The biggest issue I am having is a consistent crash after defeating Wagnas on the floating castle. It is unfortunate because it has prevented me from taking on the scenarios in the order I desired. Hopefully this bug will not carry over into the final scenarios. If not for that I would absolutely give it 5/5 Full Review

This is everything I wanted for RS2's official release with just one problem, the DRM is a pain and if you're going to have DRM, at least make it similar to Final Fantasy 5 especially for Romancing SaGa 3 so fix it Square please Full Review

I gave this 5 stars because it's a fantastic game, provided you're familiar with the SaGa series and take the time to look up its systems. You'll easily get dozens of hours out of this game if it tickles your fancy, but do be aware that the controls leave something to be desired and can themselves be a struggle. It's irritating, but doesn't detriment my enjoyment of the game. You really can play this differently every time, and retelling your RomaSaGa 2 journey to friends sounds a lot like you were describing a tabletop session rather than a JRPG. Characters die (often), but don't worry -- the game is built around that, and if it gets too hard you can restart via New Game+ and bring your emperor's items, formations, and skills to a new save game to try and do it right next time. Read the Romancing SaGa wiki's explanations for the game's systems before starting, and be ready to check character types before you recruit them to spark their preferred weapon type's techs.

The movement controls suck. The virtual dpad is too small and sensitive. Really ruins the experience when your character doesnt move the way you want him to move Full Review

Controls are just fine. Just because this runs on Android devices doesn't make this a fast-paced game. This isn't a game to rush through - it's a true gem from the developers. I wish I'd known about this series a long time ago (as a kid I played FF3(us) aka FF6, Secrets of Mana & Evermore, and Chrono Trigger on the SNES. Those were/are my favorite single player games of all time, even after being a committed 'gamer' for the two decades to follow their release). The gameplay has the nostalgic charm (npc's walk in place, fun cutscenes, content drips in smoothly as characters develop, and the townsfolk - the townsfolk!!). It also has a new level of difficulty and excitement - characters have their own proper life points that can run out, so they can die permanently - there's also so much nonlinear content in this game - it's really hard to believe that it preceded some of the other trailblazing titles I mentioned. You can explore the world all you want (like an open-world game type of experience if you enjoy those). If your party gets wiped out, you might not be able to return to where you were so easily in the future. It's pretty awesome. Don't cheat with walkthroughs. Give it a shot. Just don't rush through it. The controls are completely workable if you pay attention to them. Also, save often!! But if your party gets wiped out, try to get yourself to take the chance to rebuild your party from the ground up (instead of reloading your file) - this is a really unique feature that sets this game apart!!

I bought this with the idea of supporting the game makers in mind while avoiding the cumbersome controls of an emulator but this is worse. I've wasted so many ethers I didn't need to and spent more time cursing at tapping the wrong thing. This is a 12$ game at best not what I paid. If square wants to refund or give me a credit towards another I'd gladly take it. Full Review

I've played pretty much every SaGa game except RS1 at this point. I was really stoked to see that an RS2 translation and remaster was available on Android. Everything about this port is amazing, except for 2 things that almost made me throw my phone against the wall: 1) The DRM that requires you to be always online. Whoever thought this was a good idea should be dragged into the street and shot. If you want to play this game offline and for free, you can download a cracked APK very easily. This is just penalizing those of us who paid a lot of money for this game with no benefit whatsoever to the publisher. 2) Formation-breaking. I'm ok with mobile controls being awful (and these are especially bad -- other Square mobile ports have been much better.) But the fact that these terrible controls are coupled with an archaic game mechanic that punishes you for using a convenience feature is just insane. If these two snags were fixed, I would give this port 5* easily. Full Review

I really want to rate this higher and I will, but being in the military with lack of connection to the internet often for months, I cannot even play this game. And I bought it primarily for morale. Full Review

Terrible. This is always online. I cannot play outside while sitting on the bank playing it offline. For that money which I bought means I do not own it. Square can go and F*** off. Square Enix site said no need for online connection. Bulls*t. Full Review

It's a great game and I've been enjoying so far. The challenge and having many different choices is great. I also like how open ended it is and that you can build up your home kingdom in different ways. However, even though I'm glad that the game was finally released in full English, I feel that the translations could've been a lot better and the touch controls could use some improvements. Also, auto dash should've been off by default as dashing into an enemy makes you lose your formation. Full Review

The game i have been waiting for but Wish there is more control options. It's very hard to play with current control. Controller support would been nice. Update: this control really makes me mad. Update2 after android update save file was all gone. Full Review

DRM gets in the way Dont like how it has to authenticate every time i play it so I cannot play it at work during down time or lunch. Feel like I wasted of 20$ since I cant use it as a time killer as expected. I'm sure its a good game but DRM gets in the way of actually playing it. You are better off getting a ROM of the game.

Sound Issues No sound or music in game, but every first time battle sequence there's little music than missing. Why? Please help!! My phone asus zenfone 5, os 5.0, already check diagnostic speaker no prob. Full Review

Great game, Terrible controls It's fun and with a great storyline. Graphics are what you'd expect from a 1993 release. If the touch screen controls were calibrated properly it would be five stars. However charging $18 for a phone game with controls like this is borderline criminal... It gets frustrating real quick having to constantly hit the back button because the wrong command is chosen.

I love it... I own ALL the premium squaresoft games on android. This game has alot going for it. Similar to FFIV or FFVI, it has the charismatic pixel characters that squaresof was known for in the mid 90s. One major gripe is the battle touchscreen interface. You have no auto battle, and you have click a lot of small areas on the battle screen many times before they register. Seems like a step backwards. Very tedious. Great game. Tedious battle UI. Full Review

Finally got to play this in my native tongue... Too bad, however, the translation is pretty terrible. I don't play these games for the riveting story, so the gameplay more than makes up for it. The additions to the mobile version make the otherwise imposing difficulty a bit more manageable. The sparking system is as addictive as ever, and makes each play through a unique and challenging experience. Shout out to Gideon Zhi for bringing this gem to my attention all those years ago. Full Review

I had played the original on SFC in childhood and very glad to see it remastered now and in Eng which is better for me to understand the storyline. A bit disappointing though the character sprites look stiff and lifeless (saved awkwardly for few random enemies which have motion during the fight). And well, as others have commented, the UI n control sucks. Nevertheless, I stand by the 5 star rating for this epic game. Full Review
November 17, 2016
I love the game but the fact I can't play unless I have a internet connection is pissing me off. square-enix please put out a patch to make the game offline capable. Full Review
June 28, 2016
A classic that unfortunately never left Japan before, this is a true gem and perfectly suited to mobile gaming. If you enjoy RPGs then you're really missing out if you don't play this. Say no to micro-transaction crap and support the real games instead! [EDIT] Dropped from 5 stars to 4 as the controls need work and gamepad support would be a great addition. Will put back up to 5 if this is done. Full Review
June 17, 2016
All-time favorite The original Super Famicom game has been my all-time favorite JRPG since I first learned Japanese. The remake controls are excellent. However, I had to give one star off for an iffy translation - certainly not enough to ruin the experience, but noticeably sloppy, especially if you're familiar with the original script. Full Review

I've played romancing saga 1 & 3, so I finally get to play #2. I would definitely play romancing saga 3 first, as there is more information on that game and you can play it on your PC or playstation. Romancing saga 1 is great, but is pretty hard (and it is amazing how many monsters will mob you). These games have similar mechanics, and you will either like them or not. They are not as confusing as Saga Frontier (though with the FAQ's available, there is always a way to figure things out). I'm playing this game on an emulator (Bluestacks). It's not reasonable to play this type of game on a tiny screen IMHO. The play control for moving is still poor (you need to adjust your keyboard repeat rate, and have a small pause before changing directions). Otherwise the game is everything I could want from a retro game. Because death is permanent, I find myself resetting when I lose LP, so it is annoying how long it takes for the game to check the DRM and restart. And this game is pretty hard, which is one of its appeals. Full Review

Why!? I bought it with legitimate means, why the D.R.M? Make it playable with a update for off line and I'm sure many other people will give it a higher rating. Full Review
July 23, 2016
Awful always online DRM Let's get the most important part out of the way - I paid 20 dollars for a game I cannot access on a bad connection because of always online DRM. When publishers do stuff like this, it's really no wonder why anyone wouldn't pirate their games. Go pirate this game, DO NOT BUY IT. The pirated version has no DRM, and is therefore superior to the version paying customers spent legitimate money on. Full Review
