This information comes from series director Akitoshi Kawazu…

“There are many fans who want a Romancing SaGa 4, so I believe that it is my duty to make it before I die.”

It’s not a matter of if anymore, but when. Let’s just hope fans won’t have to wait another twenty years to see Romancing SaGa 4. Perhaps he could give the game a shot on the 3DS…

Game of the Year – Wii

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Game of the Year – DS

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

1. Super Mario Galaxy 2 (1,470,000) (May. 2010)
2. Wii Party (1,220,000) (Oct. 2010)
3. Donkey Kong Country Returns (920,000) (Nov. 2010)
4. Kirby’s Epic Yarn (880,000) (Oct. 2010)
5. Red Steel 2 (850,000) (Mar. 2010)

Man, this is pretty crazy. Could you imagine if half of those Red Steel 2 downloads contributed to actual sales? Even Kirby could have sold better! Although, I must admit I’m surprised that Wii Party is very high up on the list.
