    Shouzo Kaga, the director of the upcoming Vestaria Saga, is known for creating one of Nintendo's beloved franchises: Fire Emblem. He worked on the first five games of the series, before going on to develop the very similar TearRing Saga for the PlayStation. Now, he's back once more to create another SRPG; the aforementioned Vestaria Saga. The game was announced for Japan over three years ago, and now, it appears that it'll be seeing a western release on PC. A playable demo will also be available later today, on Steam.

    Thracia 777 right here, guys! Really looking forward to this, FE4 and FE5 were really something how creatively they used gameplay elements to tell the story, not to mention the classic Kaga difficulty.

    Dang, this is practically Fire Emblem for PCs. Don't get me wrong, it looks really cool, but I didn't think Kaga would try something like this again after the whole incident with Nintendo involving Tear Ring Saga.

    I hadn't heard of that fan game until now. Judging from the gameplay, it seems really well made. I'll have to check it out once I beat FE6.

    I will admit, however, having a prequel like FE7 to FE7 is probably going to make a lot of things harsher in hindsight, as if Elibe wasn't bad enough about that.

    Looks pretty rough right now but I'd still be up for it. That name though... I guess Tear Ring Saga wasn't enough.

    They heard of Candy Crush Saga's huge success so the naming convention should seem obvious.

    The big question nobody has asked yet: is the game good?

    I wish it wasn't looking like RPGmaker game. I think it was poor decision to leave Intelligent System. Maybe series would not have it's huge downtime with him still on board.

    Damn, it really sounds like Miku. Sure a google search could shine light upon this.

    This looks super low quality and like a fangame made in rpgmaker by a highschool student.
    I absolutely love every fire emblem, but I have no interest in this at all.

    Meh, at least its story will most likely be better than Fates.

    Wow... Wasn't really expecting it to look exactly SNES era quality. So does this game retain more of a classic FE difficulty rather than what we have seen lately, at least with the normal modes on 3DS?

    I can't wait for the mods for this game. People will be making full fire emblem mods with this. BET!

    It was made with SRPG Studio, so nearly the same as RPG Maker.

    It has two difficulty levels. I'm not sure how closely the normal difficulty relates to the classic games, but I would guess it's pretty close.
    It also has a different kind of difficulty...

    I am refreshing Steam once and again and the demo doesn't show up.
    There's a page for the game on the library with a 2019 ETA, but no demo.
    Damn... was Germany left out again?

    Nah, I just don't think the demo is online for anybody. It's a shame, I am somewhat excited for this. The demo should tell me whether I'm right to be lol
