Square Enix released the smartphone port of Romancing SaGa 2 on iOS and Android in May 2016 in English worldwide. Kawazu said at the time that Square Enix was working on a PlayStation Vita version in English.
Square Enix will also release its remastered version of Romancing SaGa 3 in the West, but Kawazu confirmed in April that it plans to release Romancing SaGa 2 first.
The Romancing SaGa 2 re-release retains the character sprites from the original 1993 SNES game, but the backgrounds and battle graphics are new. The game includes the additional classes and a dungeon that were included with the 2010 mobile version of the game.
Square Enix released the Makai Tōshi SaGa (The Final Fantasy Legend in North America) game in 1989. Since then, there have been many installments in the series, including ports and remakes. The last full-fledged SaGa game, Unlimited Saga, shipped in 2003. Square Enix released SaGa Scarlet Grace on the PlayStation Vita in December.
