And the winner of the most ridiculous video game title of all time goes to… Romancing Saga Reuniverse. Let’s all give it a big round of applause. It’s an upcoming brand new entry in the long-running JRPG series that rolls the clock right back to a time when pixels were cool.
It takes place in a world trapped in a cycle of destruction, with an apocalypse ending life every 300 years. This is all thanks to a group known as the Sinistrals, who As is ever the case with JRPGs, it’s your job to gather up a big party of heroic individuals and put a stop to the bad guys once and for all.
And you do that Gacha-style. This is a free-to-play RPG that features all of the usual trimmings: summoning heroes, automatic battles, and grinding for upgrade resources. It also shares a lot in common with its JRPG forebears though, with gorgeous hand-drawn character art, beautiful pixel visuals, and a bunch of roles and skills to unlock for each character.
It’s not the first entry in the series to arrive on mobile. Romancing Saga 2, 3, and Saga: Scarlet Grace, a port of the PlayStation Vita entry, are all available right now on the App Store or Google Play.
At this point, you’ve probably got a good idea about whether or not you want to play this. If you’re in the former camp, and can’t wait to check it out, you can pre-register right now on the App Store or Google Play. According to the App Store, Romancing Saga Reuniverse will launch on mobile on June 23.
