It’s time to head into the weekend with another Xbox Games Store update.
Today, Square Enix has added a newly updated and enhanced version of Romancing SaGa 2 to the digital storefront. Originally released in 1993, the Xbox One edition of the turn-based RPG adds a new dungeon, two new character classes, a new “Avalonian Gardens” game system, an additional scenario, and a New Game Plus mode to the game.
Also available to download today are Real Bout: Fatal Fury Special, a classic fighter from SNK’s stable of NeoGeo titles, and It’s Quiz Time, a trivia contest that might just be “the largest quiz game ever on console.”
You can learn more about all of today’s additions to the Xbox Games Store after the break.
Now Available on Xbox Games Store – 12/15/17 [Major Nelson]
Romancing SaGa 2 (Xbox Play Anywhere)
Romancing SaGa 2 is one of the many titles in the lauded SaGa roleplaying game series. In this popular entry, released in Japanese only in 1993 and boasting sales in excess of one million copies, the player’s struggle spans multiple generations as he assumes the role of a series of rulers of the Varennes Empire in a valiant struggle against the Seven Heroes. A free scenario system—a hallmark of the SaGa series—enables the player to take command of a variety of protagonists along the line of imperial succession and experience the history of a nation as it grows and changes. This freedom of choice provides a compelling narrative that served as the cornerstone of the title’s success on its initial release.
Real Bout Fatal Fury Special
Real Bout Fatal Fury Special is a fighting game released by SNK in 1997. Introducing a brand-new two-line battle system, a refinement of the Power Gauge system, and the abolishment of the ring-out system, the battle tactics of this system have been further improved. Along with Wolfgang Krauser, a total of 19 combatants appear.

Simple in concept, but very challenging and rewarding, Circuits is a musical puzzle game that requires careful listening to complete each level. The goal of Circuits: to piece together the different parts of a song. Sounds easy, but maybe it’s not… As we love music, we wanted to make a game that gives the player an insight into how music is created and makes listening the core part of the experience. Packed with beautifully designed minimal graphics, to not disturb the focus of the game, and 25 different songs for the player to reconstruct.
