SQUARE ENIX® today announced that COLLECTION OF SaGa FINAL FANTASY LEGEND™ will arrive on mobile devices on September 22 and on STEAM® on October 21. Originally released last year on the Nintendo Switch™ system to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the SaGa series, players can experience the first three titles in the revered SaGa series in one digital collection - THE FINAL FANTASY LEGEND, FINAL FANTASY LEGEND II, and FINAL FANTASY LEGEND III. Created by Akitoshi Kawazu and originally released on Game Boy™ in 1990, long-time fans will enjoy a faithful recreation of these classic 8-bit titles in this nostalgic, pioneering adventure.
COLLECTION of SaGa FINAL FANTASY LEGEND is a great introduction to this quintessential series, and RPG fans won’t want to miss as they journey through fantasy worlds, fight monsters, explore towns, battle dungeons, and more while enjoying brand new features that improve the experience including:
- Character speed boost
- Adjustable screen magnification

- 4K-compatible mode (STEAM only)
- Easy single-handed play (mobile only)
Additional features include: a special anniversary song, 8 different in-game wallpapers and the choice to play with either Japanese or English text.
In a SaGa Series Live Broadcast, Square Enix announced that Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend will launch for iOS/Android mobile devices and PC via Steam.
The mobile versions will launch on September 22, while the PC version will launch on October 22.
Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend is a set of the first three games in the SaGa series, which originally released for the Game Boy from 1989 to 1991. This triple pack released for Nintendo Switch last December. This port also includes a few enhancements, such as a character speed boost and a retro display mode.
When these games were first released in the West, they were given a different title from the SaGa branding and were instead called Final Fantasy Legend. Hence the collection's title references both the SaGa Japanese title and the Final Fantasy Legend English title.
As this announcement was just made in Japan, we'll have to wait for confirmation of English release details.
