Nintendo announced during its Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday that it will release Square Enix's SaGa Scarlet Grace role-playing game for Nintendo Switch in 2018. The port will be titled SaGa Scarlet Grace: Hiiro no Yabō (Brilliant Red Ambition).

The game's official website additionally revealed that the game is also getting a port for the PlayStation 4, Steam, iOS, and Android in 2018.

Square Enix launched the game for PlayStation Vita in Japan in December 2016. The company streamed a trailer just before its release that showcased gameplay and a web ad that highlighted the history of the SaGa series.

The game's official website describes the story's prologue:

After being banished for betraying the star gods, the evil god "Firebringer" returned as a comet. The suppressed dark demons also became violent, and the world faced a crisis.

The star gods granted one man power. He established an empire and led the people to wage war on Firebringer. The dark demons were pushed back underground, and Firebringer's star was sent away. Thereafter, the Firebringer's star and the dark demons have returned every 150 years. Many ages of emperors have battled Firebringer and the dark demons. Usually, the emperors prepare and can easily defeat the evil god, but there are also unprepared emperors who drive the world to ruin.

Akitoshi Kawazu handled the game's design and scenario. Kenji Itō composed the music, and Tomomi Kobayashi provided illustrations.
