Back in September, it was announced that SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions - the 12th installment in Square Enix’s SaGa series – would arrive on PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS on December 3rd. And true to that promise, the game is now officially available for $23.99 (Rs 1720), which is quite a hefty price indeed – especially considering that this is a discounted offer that will end on January 5th, 2020. After that, the game will return to its intended price of $29.99 (Rs 2150).
But of course, since this is a premium release, there will be no ads or IAPs to worry about if you are a mobile gamer. You get exactly what you paid for, which is a quality JRPG that can be played on the go. Check out the game’s trailer below:
As can be seen from the trailer, the mobile release of SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions is an enhanced version of the original game, which launched on PS Vita in Japan back in 2016. The graphics are undoubtedly much better and more suitable for HD devices, though some of the game’s environments and textures still betray its VITA root.
Of course, the price is surely going to be a major turn off for many players. After all, you can get many triple-A PC titles for the same amount. It’s not exactly a surprise, though, as Square Enix is known for asking an arm and a leg for premium mobile ports of its games.
That said, it’s admittedly not too unreasonable for the company to do so. If you do decide to go ahead and purchase SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions, you’ll see that it’s money well spent. There are at least 70 hours of content to play through, which is far beyond what you’d see from the majority of mobile titles on the market. Think of it as a fully-fledged JRPG that you can put in your pocket.
So if you are a sucker for expansive single-player JRPGs and have the cash to spare, you can find the mobile version of SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions available for purchase on Google Play or the App Store. It’s also up on Steam, PlayStation Store, and Nintendo eShop if you prefer to play on your PC or console instead.
