Romancing SaGa 2 Revenge of the Seven details the Inheritance system, character classes

During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Square Enix announced Romancing SaGa 2 Revenge of the Seven, a 3D remake of the 1993 Super Nintendo title, will be coming to PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. The game is developed by Xeen, known for their work on the Trials of Mana 3D remake back in 2020.

In the reveal trailer, we see the premise of the game’s story: seven heroes who once protected the world have returned after they’ve been missing for a millennium – but they’re no longer allied with the Avalonian Empire. It’s up to you, the Emperor of Avalon, to defeat them alongside your faithful – even if it takes generations to do so.

Romancing SaGa 2 is known for the Inheritance system – magic that allows successive rules of Avalon to gain their predecessor’s abilities. Many characters can be recruited belonging to different classes that specialize with different weapon types.

Square Enix shares a look at these systems:


Through the Inheritance system, you can select the next Emperor and pass down the powers of the previous generation to them.

Inheritance automatically occurs when the current emperor is reduced to zero LP, when the party is wiped out, when time moves on to the next era, or when the current ruler abdicates.

All playable characters can become an emperor. You can use Inheritance to move on to the next ruler in the imperial line at a time of your choice. (However, is not possible to have two emperors abdicate in a row)

Character Classes

There are over 30 individual character classes to choose from, covering a wide variety of different races and professions. Each class has its own unique characteristics, with different proficiencies for weapons and spells.
