Mercenaries Saga Chronicles consists of three games of the tactical RPG series brought together for the Nintendo Switch. If the gameplay is polished enough to allow for a fun experience and the variety of options for the characters is very much welcome, the game could also go much further when it comes to introducing new elements, of which there are very few, and to make its plot more interesting and compelling to the players.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles offers an awful lot of tactical turn-based strategy content for the asking price, but the dull storylines, repetitive gameplay, and absolutely identical nature of all three titles make us question the reasoning behind packaging them all together as a bundle. In their own right, each game will provide you with hours of well-designed battles, but we doubt many players will genuinely want to sit through all three games as they would be effectively playing the same game three times.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles offers three SRPGs for the Nintendo Switch, and while they're relatively standard games, there is still fun to be had.

Mercenaries Saga Chronicles is about as straightforward as a strategy RPG can be, its greatest asset being an impressive volume of content that eclipses its meager asking price.

Mercenaries Chronicles Saga offers a decent amount of gameplay that averages about five dollars a game. Which really is not a terrible price. However, the lack of freshness does hold it back.

Three similar games in one decent collection offer great tactical combat, but poor story and unbalanced gameplay.

There's so much raw content in this package that, as long as you're a fan of the standard tactics JRPG formula, you won't be able to help but get plenty of value out of this trilogy. And the standard tactics JRPG formula is so damn good that it's timeless. Making Mercenaries Saga itself functionally timeless.

The upgrade to the game's look to present them in a 16:9 aspect ratio, as well as the gameplay improvements for the first two games applied from the third game in the series make this the definitive version of the trilogy.

If you're a fan of the SRPG genre, then I highly recommend that you get Mercenaries Saga Chronicles on Nintendo Switch. It has a ton of content at a very affordable $14.99, and completing all three games at least once will require dozens of hours of gaming at home or on the go. The games aren't perfect, and playing all three back to back to back might feel as if you're playing different (very long) chapters of the same game due to how they share the same overall look and gameplay mechanics, but for SRPG aficionados this won't be a deal-breaker.
