SaGa Frontier Remastered: Asellus guide — Dr. Nusakan and extra content
dr Nusakan is one of the characters that can join your list SaGa border. Unfortunately, the game’s original release in 1998 only offered this opportunity for Riki and Blue. In Riki’s case, that was while you were looking for rings. As for Blue, he’s trying to get the Hide Rune. Now, however, there’s a treat for longtime fans SaGa Frontier Remastered allows Asellus, Dr. to recruit Nusakan. It is also partially related to abridged content from the original version.
It’s actually a good idea to do this since Dr. Nusakan is one of the better characters in the game. Likewise, he’s also a Mystic, and recruiting him will add more flavor to your play as Asellus since she’s half Mystic. However, keep in mind that this is only possible a little later in the story. Also, be aware that this guide contains minor spoilers.
SaGa Frontier Remastered: Asellus Guide – Dr. Recruit Nusakan and see additional content for the story
To Dr. To add Nusakan to your roster as Asellus, you must first complete the Dark Labyrinth section of her story. This will automatically join Zozma to your team. This red-haired fighter plays an important role in the next parts.
Anyway, go ahead and travel to Koorong. As you exit the port, you’ll see Zozma hanging around. He will tell you that there is a doctor who is also a mystic and he just happens to be in town.
Go down a few screens until you reach the alley with the three birds. Enter the door with the well-lit sign and interact with the skeleton. Open the room to Dr. Nusakan’s office. It seems he’s quite curious about Asellus’ state as a semi-mystic and will be happy to join your party.
You will have a powerful ally by your side, one who can cast the magic of death from the start. It’s pretty helpful as you can easily take out tough enemies, including mini-bosses (i.e. Jotnar if you’re still looking for the shield card). Even better dr. Nusakan has Mystic Wear equipped so you can give him stronger armor pieces.
But it doesn’t stop there. As part of the additional content in SaGa Frontier Remastered, Asellus’ story has some additional tidbits. For example, you have alternative ways to escape from Facinaturu. It used to be that you only went through a cave to reach a pilot who would take you to Owmi. Now you can either talk to Zozma in Asellus’ room and then escape from Kurenai via the hearth (you’ll end up in Mosperiburg) or talk to the other two people in the Rootville bar (this leads to a pretty tough fight). and an early meeting with Emelia).
Another major content addition can be seen much later when Zozma is already with you. Visit the Bio Research Lab in Shrike. Zozma will comment that this location is used for experimenting with Mystics. Go up one floor and look at the central room. Inside you will find a researcher named Nasheera. She will ask Asellus if she is willing to participate in an experiment.
Follow Nasheera through the facility (the mad scientists won’t attack you for now). After the experiment is done, Asellus will be disgusted with Nasheera’s plans. Once she runs away, you can check the rooms in the facility to free the trapped humans and mystics. After freeing the two test subjects in the downstairs room, Nasheera will reprimand you.
When you say you’re “ready,” a boss fight begins against the Earth Dragon, a ridiculously tough boss SaGa border. However, you can opt out if you are not ready. You can always come back later to challenge Nasheera and the Earth Dragon. Note that the chamber at the bottom of the facility (which used to be the Earth Dragon’s location) is now locked. The entrance area is basically where you will now fight the beast.
Note 1: If you visited the bioresearch lab earlier in the game (e.g. to get cotton) the events will not trigger since Zozma is not with you yet.
Note 2: For clarity, I encountered Nasheera/the Earth Dragon first, then left the area without fighting the boss. Then I returned to Koorong. There I also saw Zozma and he told me about the recruitment of Dr. Nusakan. I’m not exactly sure if these events need to be sequential.
SaGa Frontier Remastered Coming to Steam on April 15th.
