Square Enix s 16-bit role-playing game Romancing SaGa 2 will be playable in English for the first time ever with this week s upcoming launch of a fully featured port for iOS and Android devices.

Originally released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo s Japanese counterpart, the Super Famicom, Romancing SaGa 2 is a console-styled RPG in the vein of Square Enix s Final Fantasy series.

The 16-bit entries in both franchises share a similar aesthetic, and many feature a turn-based combat system that encourages players to develop strategies that exploit enemy weaknesses.

Though Romancing SaGa 2 was never previously available in English, many subsequent series entries have been localized over the years, including SaGa Frontier for the original PlayStation and the PS2-era sequel Unlimited SaGa.

While a PS Vita version of Romancing SaGa 2 was recently released in Japan, Square Enix has not announced plans to localize the Vita edition for western audiences.

Keeping in line with Square Enix s premium-priced mobile releases, Romancing SaGa 2 will be available for $18 when it hits iOS and Android storefronts later this week.
