SaGa Frontier Remastered guide: How to unlock Fuse and New Game+


SaGa border appeared in the late 90s. Originally, the game had seven characters to choose from. This included favorites like Red and Asellus, as well as the somewhat forgotten Lute and Riki. However, the developers left some content on the cutting room floor. Now, SaGa Frontier Remastered introduces a new playable character, Fuse, and its inclusion is also related to the New Game+ feature. Looks like the IRPO detective is more than just a random hit that you discover while getting the shield card.

Note: Fuse isn’t the only newcomer SaGa Frontier Remastered. That’s because Square Enix decided to add more detail to the story of Asellus. In fact, Asellus can even Dr. Recruit Nusakan, the last mystic, to their roster.

SaGa Frontier Remastered Instructions: Unlock Fuse and New Game+

The method to unlock Fuse is simple enough. All you have to do is beat the game with any main character. Of course, it may take a while to get to this point, especially if you’re grinding and power-leveling to defeat each character’s respective final boss.

If you manage to complete a campaign, you will be prompted to overwrite your existing system data or create a new one. This is your New Game+ save file, denoted by a red crown. You can transfer many things with the New Game+ option. You can keep your gold, items, attributes/stats, HP/JP/WP, skills, spells and various abilities. You can even take on the current enemy rank, meaning monsters are stronger from the start.

Note 1: You can keep the Asura/Phantasm and Sandjar if your previous character had them. However, what is not transferred are magic gifts (you have to repeat the quests).

Note 2: The New Game+ option in SaGa Frontier Remastered ensures that each character you pick in your next run will have the stats/skills based on how you built them up during your previous run. For example, I used Lute sometimes during my Asellus run so he ended up with his pre-leveled stats. Conversely, I hardly ever had Fuse joining fights, meaning he had low stats. I gave him some high end items once I got him under control.

Either way, Fuse becomes a playable option for your New Game+ runs. If you choose him, a completely unique story awaits you. As an IRPO patrolman, Fuse originally appeared when your characters attempted to obtain the shield card in IRPO/Mosperiburg. His new story in SaGa Frontier Remastered gives him a more active role.

It begins with him looking for clues to a missing girl kidnapped by mystics (Asellus). From there, he will investigate the other main characters’ businesses. If you played and get the original game SaGa Frontier Remasteredgive Fuse’s story a try.
