Trivia / Romancing SaGa 2

Go To

  • Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.": Rocbouquet has made an appearance in Final Fantasy Tactics S, but Romancing SaGa 2 never got released in the States until the iOS and Android ports 20 years later.
  • No Export for You: SaGa is fairly good at getting across the pond, but this game never made it at first. It was re-released on the Virtual Console in Japan, but there was no word on a translation. A Fan Translation by Aeon Genesis was in the works, but never made it out of Development Hell. Now averted with the worldwide iOS/Android port.
