Square Enix opens SaGa 2 official site
Game Boy classic being brought to DS for 2009 release
Square Enix opened up a teaser website today for SaGa 2: Hihou Densetsu. News of the DS remake of the second SaGa series game was leaked out last week from Weekly Shounen Jump.
The official site is currently in an early state. Links for "Story," "Character," "System", "Download" and "Trailer" are inactive at present. However, the site does contain a short sampling of the game's music.
According to the site, Square Enix is aiming for a 2009 release for the title. Development staff includes Akitoshi Kawazu as executive producer and general director, Hiromichi Tanaka as co-executive producer and general supervisor, Kenji Ito on sound, Gen Kobayashi as main character designer, Yoichi Yoshimoto as supervisor, and Hiroyuki Miura as producer. Fans will recognize many of these names from past SaGa games, as well as titles like Musashiden and Subarashiki Kono Sekai.
The site links to a special website celebrating the 20th anniversary of the SaGa series. This site includes short video clips and Japanese language recaps of all entries in the series starting with the 1989 original.
