SaGa Emerald Beyond Demo Available Tomorrow [Updated]

Update [April 4, 2024] — Square Enix revealed that the demo features three different protagonist options, one for each platform, with progress made during the demo able to be transferred to the full game.

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players will be able to begin the story of Tsunanori Mido, who can control puppets to complete tasks and joins a project consisting of explorers investigating other worlds to repair his city’s weakening barrier. Nintendo Switch players can follow the tale of Ameya Aisling, a witch who is also known as Miyako City schoolgirl Yumeha Izumi and whose powers are stolen from her. Finally, PC players can start the story of Diva No. 5, a songstress mech who signs a forbidden song, causing her memory and singing functionality to be sealed away.

In addition, Square Enix released a new English protagonist trailer focusing on Diva No. 5, as well as a Japanese “final” trailer. Both videos can be viewed below.

Square Enix announced that a demo for SaGa Emerald Beyond will be available internationally on April 4, 2024. The demo will be available from midnight local time on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch, and from 4pm GMT (12pm EDT/9am PDT) on PC via Steam. Details about the demo’s contents have not yet been revealed.

SaGa Emerald Beyond features multiple worlds connected by apparent emerald waves to a place called the Beyond, with each of the game’s protagonists passing into the Beyond before journeying to different worlds. The game has five different protagonist options, each with their own storylines and potential fates. Combat refines the timeline-based system from SaGa Scarlet Grace, including the returning Glimmer system and formations. SaGa Emerald Beyond will release worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android on April 25, 2024.
