The SaGa series has been sort of pushed to the side over the years, making way for other more popular Square-Enix series. And while the SaGa series still continues, the Romancing SaGa games stopped at the third entry. Where, oh where, is my fourth entry?
Square-Enix Producer and series director of the SaGa series, Akitoshi Kawazu, says that a fourth title will come… he’s just not entirely sure when. He does give us a window though… some point between now, and when he dies.
Depending on how you look at it, that can be incredibly short or an incredibly long wait, not that we want Akitoshi to die (he still has to make it!). The exact quote reads, “There are many fans who want a Romancing SaGa 4, so I believe that it is my duty to make it before I die.”
SaGa games aren’t very popular outside of Japan, and Square-Enix knows it. The titles rarely get localized. So even if a Romancing SaGa 4 is a created, fan translators are likely to be our only hope.
