    Yay! I can't wait to play this game. I love this series so much, and the unique gameplay should make it fun if only for the novelty. Though I have faith SaGa won't let me down.

    Well, Judging from the equal amount of praise and bashing done to this game, it sure sounds like a typical SaGa installment. I know just about everything one can know about this game without actually playing it yet.

    I'm personally very happy. This news has made my whole week. The one thing that I am a bit worried about is this games performance in the US. This could be the deciding factor on whether or not we receive any possible future installments in the series. The pretty graphics are enough to draw any fanboy to attention, I'm just hoping that the "gameboard" style of play and the very odd skill system won't deter people from the game ultimately. I'm really looking forward to the OST which I ordered today. I waited until it was official so if the game wasn't released, I wouldn't have the OST as a reminder that I'd never be able to play the game in English.

    As a side thought though. If any of you rpgamer staff has any inside connections to Square (never know???) tell them to actually include a helpful instruction manual. The SF games didn't have much to them and left out a lot of details that they shouldn't have. I don't mind learning a game as I go, but I know it was a BIG complaint of a lot of people.

    While I'm not a HUGE fan of the SaGa games I do enjoy them. This one looks to be as interesting as the others so I'll give it a go. Definitely.

    Well, I've got a mixed reaction. As happy as I am to have it come over, the last two Saga games were terrible - they were great ideas gone to waste. I hope this one is better, but it's definetly a rental first.

    I despised SaGa Frontier 1 and really enjoyed 2 up to the final boss levels, so my feelings are mixed.

    However, I am likely to pick up U SaGa, even if it is just a rental, to take it for a spin. It looks and sounds interesting, and suitably different from the Frontier 1.

    I have a question....Since the localization has probably been underway for awhile now, I'm wondering if this title will be a Square EA title or a Square Enix title in the US...Does anybody know?

    Square-Enix would be my guess.

    I enjoyed both games (Saga & Saga II) so I'll definitly buy this one. And God thank you ! Masashi Hamauzu made the soundtrack ! The battle music is AWESOME !!!

    SaGa is Square's 2nd most popular series? Huh?

    I guess in Japan maybe...Unlimites SaGa *is* the 9th game in the series after all and no other Square series has that many games, even though I'd say Seiken Densetsu and Chrono are much better series...

    Why can't Square have made 9 Seiken Densetsu games over the years? Seiken and SaGa both started on the GB:)

    I never liked SaGa...
