An interview with SaGa series creator Akitoshi Kawazu in Famitsu this week reveals what players can atmospherically expect from SaGa 2015 when it launches on PS Vita next year.
When asked about what genre the game is, Kawazu simply states that it’s a “standard RPG,” but that it will continue the series’ trademark of nonlinear gameplay and that the story will have several protagonists in it.
Regarding just how the character depicted in the first set of revealed concept art is, Kawazu says that he’s “Fire Bringer,” the god of the world in the game. As for who the girl and black-haired guy are, though, he’s remaining mum.
Lastly, with regards to the overall feel of the game, Kawazu answers, “In terms of the overall setting, it’s close to something like Romancing SaGa and if you looked at it just through that lens, we could have even called it ‘Romancing SaGa 4.’ On the other hand, there are parts of it that aren’t evocative of the Romancing SaGa games, making it a bit inappropriate to actually call the game that.”
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
