Originally known as Jikuu no Hasha: SaGa 3, this is the only SaGa game not to be produced by Akitoshi Kawazu, so its gameplay and presentation are considerably different. Whether that makes it more accessible, or more boring and "vanilla," is open to the player's interpretation.
It was remade for the Nintendo DS, like its predecessor.
Many of these are blank in the English version.
Use code 01xx01C7 to modify the item in the second slot in the item list. The first entry is for the English version, the second for the Japanese version.
|Digit||Name (NA)||Name (JP)||Comments|
|E5||Blank||Warp 2 (UAAPU 2)||Listed at the end of the Unit digits. Cannot be installed onto the ship so its function (if any) is a mystery.|
|ED||Blank||Password (Aikotoba)||Unknown what this would be used for, if anything.|
|EF||Blank||Pureland Case (Ijigen KEESU)||Could have been used anywhere in Pureland, really.|
|F6||Blank||Plutonium (PURUTONIUMU)||Needed to power the Talon?|
|F9||Blank||Blank||Just an empty slot, presumably.|
|FA||Blank||Blank||Just an empty slot, presumably.|
|FB||Buji||BARUZAI||You must have been able to "install" the crew members like units in an earlier version of the game. This seems to be removed in the final; they don't do anything much like the other values. Note that he's actually called Buzi in the English version.|
|FC||Shar||SHARURU||Another crew member.|
|FD||Juba||ZUKAUBA||Another crew member.|
|FE||Masa||##PiZA##Pe (glitch)||Another crew member.|
Provide cheat code.
The Talent "X-Heat" is not possessed by any monster, beast, cyborg, robot or boss in the game. It's a single target instant death attack with a unique animation: the screen fades to white like the White spell or the Talon's cannon, and then the same grim reaper sprite as the other instant death attacks appears over the target. In the Japanese version, this talent's name was houshanou (Radiation).
Three monsters were changed in the English version.
What was once a crazy robot nurse became a bizarre abstraction with gigantic lips and long hair(?)...
A dual-knife-wielding cyborg ninja surgeon was transformed into some sort of skull-headed pirate wielding twin sickles. This change and the previous one were likely made in order to avoid portraying medical professionals as scary or antagonistic to children.
The creepy clown monsters used to be creepy puppet clown drummers. Take your pick as to which one is worse...
(A possible reason for the switch is that the "puppet clown drummer" is based on the mascot for the rather famous and defunct Cui-daore Restaurant in Osaka, the Kuidaore Taro. The reference would go over the heads of most non-Japanese players.)
