Final Fantasy Legend Gets a Triple Retro Boost on Steam

Recent articles

From today it is Collection of SaGa: Final Fantasy Legend available on Steam. The original Switch release was recently ported to mobile devices. Square Enix also offers some new features that fit in today’s time. These notably include 4K resolution, a turbo mode, and changing the screen size.

The collection includes three titles from the SaGa series: The Final Fantasy Legend, Final Fantasy Legend II, and Final Fantasy Legend III. In 1989, the first part of the trilogy was released as Makai Tōshi SaGa in Japan and later as The Final Fantasy Legend in North America. Confusing, because actually the game doesn’t have much to do with Final Fantasy.

But this series was just already popular in the West at the time, and Square was simply trying to establish the SaGa series as a Final Fantasy offshoot. SaGa 2: Hihō Densetsu and SaGa 3: Jikū no Hasha followed each year in Japan, and Square then remained consistent with the naming convention in the West.

The original 8bit games were all released for Game Boy and the new release is a port of the originals once developed under the direction of Akitoshi Kawazu. The reissue was particularly pleasing, as the originals never appeared in Europe.
