Tonight during Square Enix's E3 2019 event, Square Enix released a combination trailer announcing English localizations for two SaGa series titles. While we didn't get a release date for either title, the trailer states they are "coming soon".
SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions
SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions finally got its official localization announcement.
