Ummm… didn’t Uematsu have a hand in the music for Romancing SaGa? I’m pretty sure he did with the GameBoy SaGas, and I thought he did have a small hand in Romancing SaGa games. Maybe not, I could very well be wrong. Though considering Ito would have worked with Uematsu early in his video game career, I’m sure that’s why there would be any similarity.
Was Romancing SaGa free scenario? I haven’t played i t because I can’t read japanese, but I thought Romancing SaGa was a bit more linear, like the older SaGas. The Free Scenario stuff was introduced in RS2 if I’m not mistaken. Of course, maybe I am mistaken. It happens.
Regardless, I’m still thrilled about a Romancing SaGa game on the PS2, as shown by my use of another emoticon.
