Vestaria Saga English Demo Now Available!

Following yesterday’s announcement trailer, the demo for the English version of Vestaria Saga can now be downloaded from the game’s Steam page.

This demo starts with the prologue map, where Zade and his loyal knights must escape their war-torn kingdom together with their princess. Here, you can learn the basic gameplay mechanics while you hurry for your life.

Afterwards, the demo ends right before Chapter 1 begins proper. By this time, Zade and his allies have alighted in the neighbouring nation of Venecia. However, it’s not all roses and sunshine–Zade must fight and prove his worth if he wishes to remain.

Since a lot of people will probably be playing for the first time, here’s some information that might help.

Firstly, for some reason, the game can take a long, long time to actually run after you open it. Don’t worry, this seems to be normal! The game will eventually load, even if nothing appears to be happening. Don’t bother trying to open the game multiple times!

Secondly, the game recommends playing with a gamepad–specifically an XBox controller. However we imagine not everybody has one. So here are the keyboard controls:

Button(s) Function
Arrow Keys Move cursor
ENTER, Z Select unit (hovering on unit)
Confirm movement (unit selected)
Check selection (status menu)
System menu (empty area on map)
CTRL, X Cancel movement (unit selected)
Check status menu (hovering on unit)
Toggle Danger (empty area on map)
Fast-forward
SPACE Skip
C Check status menu (hovering on unit)
Check selection (status menu)
A and S Toggle units

You can also control the game using your mouse.

Lastly, you can save your game at the start of the 1st turn and then every 5th turn, but only if you haven’t moved any units yet! Saving is done via the system menu, accessible by pressing ENTER or Z on an empty space.

If you have any questions, feel free to check out our forums, specifically the TearRing Saga sub-section. (We may create a sub-section just for Vestaria Saga one day.)

    I haven’t tried it yet, but thanks for the tips! I’m of the type who actually reads the instruction book, at least when games had it.

    If I use the Switch pro controller, am I playing FE Switch before anyone?

    Ok I’m really bad with this stuff. I tried downloading Wine and Winebottler and tried opening Steam thru that. Eventually it worked but the store didn’t want to load. Unfortunately it’s only on Windows. Is there any way for me to play the demo on Mac? If not, is there any way to like contact those involved asking that they release a Mac platform compatible version when they release the full game?
