    An official date for the SaGa 2 remake was announced today- September 18, 2009. In addition to this, the final Japanese boxart was released as well-

    Those keeping up know that this game was originally released in the US on the Gameboy under the title of Final Fantasy Legend II. In fact, the entire Final Fantasy Legend series were actually SaGa games, just renamed for the US audience apparently to cash in on the hype of that series.

    Apparently also, this game is receiving a limited edition DSi bundle for Japanese audiences. It will cost about $250 on import.

    if i didn't remember wrongly it used to be Sa.Ga with a fullstop
    that is why it is SaGa
    this is also how it was named as since the first Sa Ga came out
    LOL

    since SE had localized its predecessor and many other games
    i assume this game should be localized to E or U
