Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe is just around the corner, with the global release date approaching 23rd June for both iOS and Android mobile devices. The official Romancing SaGa Re univerSe twitter has already reported that over 500,000 users have pre-registered for the game’s official launch. Those are some crazy high numbers, so we’ve decided to jump on the hype train and write our top 5 reasons we’re excited for Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe.
Extremely popular in Japan
The SaGa game series was given birth inside Japan alongside legendary titles such as Final Fantasy and Mana series. Various iterations of the SaGa game series would receive millions of purchases. In particular, Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe had been downloaded over 19 million times in Japan since it’s 2018 launch. Japan’s population is somewhere around 125 million so the game had been downloaded by almost 1/6th of Japan’s population. This is how much people of the Rising Sun are in love with the SaGa series!
Legendary Artist – Tomomi Kobayashi
Tomomi Kobayashi is a well-known artist for her character depictions and illustration in the SaGa video game series. She is one of the OG anime/punk 90s style artwork creators that has swept away every critic and has been coined received recognition as one of the most iconic artists in Japan’s artwork industry. Think how many times you’ve seen unique and eye-catching artwork – you’ll probably only be able to count on your fingers. We can’t wait to appreciate her artwork in this upcoming game.
Unique Way To Level Characters
This is not your typical gacha hero collector game – you’re not collecting the heroes themselves but their styles instead. What this means is that a hero can have possession of multiple different styles with various rarities ranging from A up to SS. Once you acquire 2 or more styles, you can share the Style Experience with each other. This means, if you max out your one style and still keep using it, you could start funneling that experience back to the weaker style. This way, you’ll able to pick and play with any style you prefer the most without actually locking yourself into one specific character. There will surely be less requirement for Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe guide because now every character uses the same style experience points! But stay tuned to this article as we’ll surely release a Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe guide.
If it wasn’t enough the game has a legendary artist we also get to listen to beautiful symphonies by Kenji Ito. He has composed music for over 30 different video games and has crafted a unique style of music that makes him stand out from the rest of the music composers. His BGM music, in particular, is very melancholic and punchy at the same time whereas his OST as a whole is more focused on delivering a single message within the whole game’s journey. A truly amazing musician of the 21st Century and we can’t wait to listen to his Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe OST and BGM music!
Every Style Matters
From what we learned, the Japan version is already super generous with gems and other premium currency. So while you will get showered with free items, you will also get a chance to explore every style. We’ve learned that every style, just like in any other SaGa series game, can be slowly grinded with enough patience. This means you could turn even a starter A rarity character (which could get placed low in a Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe tier list) and still turn into a powerful hero.
Training your hero never goes to waste because getting a new style for them brings a new breath of life to their skill sets. Every character grows naturally their base stats by just getting into fights at random and each style is a multiplier to those base stats so worst case scenario you get to upgrade a style you didn’t like and the core hero only becomes stronger either way.
Massive number of events backlogged from Japan
We know we only promised you only 5 reasons to get hyped but since you were so awesome and read this far into our article we wanted to create one more reason to get hyped. That being the events. A lot of mobile gacha games launch without any exciting new events and this can sometimes lead to the game declining in relevance. But since Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe had already been released for over 2 years in Japan, it had built up a massive backlog of events and we already saw that during the closed beta when we got about 4 events at the same time. More events mean more premium currency which means we’ll get showered in so much stuff at the start of the game that we just can’t hold our excitement anymore.
