SaGa Emerald Beyond Tokyo Game Show 2023 trailer

Square Enix has released the Tokyo Game Show 2023 trailer for SaGa Emerald Beyond, the newest title in the SaGa franchise announced for release in 2024.

Taking cues from SaGa Scarlet Grace which released on the PlayStation Vita back in 2016 and the subsequent HD remaster SaGa Scarlet Grace Ambitions in 2018, Emerald Beyond features a similar battle system and overworld map.

After you select one of six protagonists, the story that unfolds can change in myriad ways based on your decisions, moreso that in any previous SaGa title, according to Square Enix. Turn-based “timeline battles” also return, which have you strategically selecting actions that manipulate characters’ positions on a timeline that governs when characters act.

Series creator Akitoshi Kawazu returns as game designer and storyteller, Kenji Ito also returns as composer, and character design is handled by Satoshi Kuramochi (SaGa Scarlet Grace, World of Final Fantasy Maxima, Medical 91).

Check out the trailer below, as well as the first story, character, and combat details.
