Romancing Saga 2 Coming soon to PC and Consoles.

Our long wait is over! We will finally get to play RS2 with newly added features!

Now we have:

Super Famicom Version (Fan Translated), and the official English remake for PS2 of RS1.
The newly added Romancing Saga 2 for english!

All that is left is Romancing Saga 3!

I wonder if the PC version will be able to be modded like recent Square ports from mobile?

It would sure be great to be able to fix at least the naming errors, if they didn't already.

Isn't the fan translation incomplete, though?

He meant for the fan translation of Romancing Sega 1.

Amen to that. I wanted to play it on a dedicated gaming/powerful computing platform and not on one of those mobile tablet ecosystems (Android/iOS). And this now happens.

Got the pc version yesterday and sadly it seems pretty bad... the phone icons are still there, my 360 controller sometimes won't register without first going into the steam controller menu and there's no manual or in-game tutorial. It also doesn't seem to improve on the interface of the original much at all and the music is the same as on SNES (which had great music but still).

Main improvements I've noticed are the higher res (easier to orient yourself and plan your movement in dungeons for example), the removed "much shorter vision while running" mechanic, and a quick travel feature.

it looks they've released the update which removed phone icons and stuff, but it introduced some new bugs so they've rolled it back. guess it should be coming soon enough.

and yes, you can see monsters while running, but if you're attacked then your formation is broken. so you kinda have to walk around monsters anyway.
also, I've found that it's enough to turn off/unplug the controller and plug it back in with the game running for it to start working.
