Romancing Saga: Minstrel Song for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
An enhanced remake of the popular Japanese SaGa series' fourth title that originally appeared on the SNES, Romancing SaGa comes to North American PS2s along with new features, deeper presentation, and graphical and audio updates expected with the jump from 16- to 128-bit processing. While 2D pixilation is replaced by 3D polygons, the series strives to retain its non-linear storytelling and simple charm. As one of eight playable characters, gamers lead a party of heroes in a quest to prevent the re-awakening of Saruin, a supernatural villain who has been imprisoned for the last millennium. These heroes are aided by the guidance and advice of a traveling minstrel, who seems to come and go mysteriously.
