Could be any number of things. Lack of faith in it's ability to move at a higher price? The fact that it's a port of a game that came out a few years ago? Hard to say, but rest assured that it is a large and very good game.
I think it's so they don't get shit for selling it cheaper on mobile (which they keep porting SaGa releases to, so it must be doing decently for them).
50+ hours? I think my first playthrough (on Vita), which was also my first SaGa, took me between 70 and 80 hours.
Yup, It's pretty much the same system as in previous titles - higher spark rates with their weapon of choice. Going by their initial equipment seems the safest bet.
Those games are 4, 5, and 9 years old. Surely they may have improved on the things you’ve disliked since then?I'm not really a "Fire Emblem" person. Last one I played was Awakening, even if I have more of them in my backlog. XBX, Tales of Hearts R and Glory of Heracles are a few examples. But yes, they do have some hits and not only misses, I suppose. We'll see about this one.
Absolutely; Dragalia probably wouldn’t have kept my interest for nearly this long if it wasn’t punched up like that.
50 hours per character.
It's pretty much that with quests and fine-tuning your party in-between. No towns or dungeons to explore.
perhaps the same could be said of all jrpgs
It can be 20 hours if you just try to power through the critical path of a character.... if you even know what the critical path is specifically that is haha.
If you can manage to like Unlimited SaGa despite its weirdness, sure. Through I recommend Renowned Explorers as a good game sort of like Unlimited SaGa.
Replays can be way shorter.
You want more of the SaGa series wonderful town and dungeon design?
Larger in scope and longer, and more replayable. It was a full retail release in Japan, and we just get to benefit from it being digital-only and Westerners having narrow views on what makes a good JRPG.
You are weird. I want to be your friend, but then I'm afraid you'd come and kill me in my sleep.
Woah, they really went above and beyond if that is true. Kind of odd to put that much work into the localization with almost zero promotion of the game.
It's almost as if they blew their entire budget on the localisation alone.
I guess that explains the price then. Sorta-kinda like Little Town Hero (I mean the situation, not the game itself). The 20% discount makes it tempting.
I had the same thing happen on PSN. They just credited the difference to my account without me having to do anything.
You have never had to play through more than one character in a SaGa game with multiple characters before to enjoy the game so I don't know why this would be any different.
Yeah I just saw it a bit ago. Glad I got the credit.
it was full price Vita game so i thinks its less that and more of the fact its an almost 5 year old vita up port
You just pick one of the characters and play it until the end of their storyline. There's no interaction like Gensô Suikoden 3 or Rudra no Hihô, where the other scenarios happen at the same time as yours: in SG, the other characters you didn't pick will remain where they are, you may meet them or not, but you won't be wondering "what was character X doing while I was doing Y?". Each story is a bit light compared to traditional JRPG, but they're a complete package.
interesting, thank you.You just pick one of the characters and play it until the end of their storyline.

The point about replayability is that it's a very modular game, with a good learning curve, so once you've finished it, you may want to start again with all the knowledge you've gained and try different team compositions or playstyle. And if you do that, you can pick a different character to spice things up. Nothing more.
