Square Enix has announced that the Romancing SaGa 3 remaster’s Japanese release has suffered an indefinite delay, to allow more time to improve “the development quality.”
“We are still in the state of improving the development quality, so I would like to have a little more time,” SaGa series producer Masanori Ichikawa explained on a broadcast for the Romancing SaGa Re:Universe mobile game.
SaGa series creator Akitoshi Kawazu went on to add on Twitter: “Romancing SaGa 3 fans, I ask for your further patience. The development team is doing their best, so please wait a little longer.”
Romancing SaGa 3 is the sixth game in the series, and was released for the Super Famicom in November 1995. It went on to become available on both the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console services but has never made it outside of Japan. That is until now, as, after Romancing SaGa 2, it seems likely that the publisher will localise the classic role-playing game for a western release.
Romancing SaGa 3 will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in Japan in 2019.
