SaGa Emerald Beyond Demo Launches April 4th for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC

The demo is available at midnight local time for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, while Steam users must wait until 9 AM PDT.

Square Enix has announced that SaGa Emerald Beyond will receive a free demo on April 4th. It’s available at midnight local time for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5, while PC players can access it via Steam at 9 AM PDT.

While the demo’s contents are unknown, the accompanying clip on Twitter seemingly indicates three playable characters – Tsunanori Mido (who controls magical puppets), Ameya Aisling (a witch-in-training) and Diva No. 5 (a robot whose voice and memory have been sealed). It’s also unclear if progress will transfer to the game, allowing players to pick up where they left off.

SaGa Emerald Beyond offers six playable characters, each with unique backstories and paths to follow, with 17 different worlds to explore. Depending on your actions, the story can branch accordingly, leading to different endings. It launches on April 25th worldwide.
