Romancing Saga 2 takes the varied gameplay of other entries in the series and combines it with an open-ended free-form scenario system whose story is as vast as the world in which it plays out. The player takes the role of a succession of emperors, painting the history of the world with each and every action.
It all begins with the song of a lone bard in a bustling pub.
Great nations such as the Varennes Empire, which had once ensured peace throughout the world, stagnated and atrophied over the course of centuries, and sinister forces started emerging in outlying areas.
Ere long, peace spiraled into war and the common folk spoke in hushed words of the Seven Heroes historical figures who saved the world once and who, it was hoped, would do so again.
