The announcement itself is light on details, however we do know that this is going to be the first time which Mercenaries Saga continues to be on a Nintendo platform. The series was created by Japanese developer Rideon, also initially started as a Japanese-only cellular game that is frequently described as a Final Fantasy Tactics spiritual successor. And as the first Mercenaries Saga never watched a console or Western launch, Mercenaries Saga 2 (published for Nintendo 3DS at 2015, and afterwards on iOS and Android) improved the gameplay and adapted it for a more-traditional controller layout.
Ultimately, Mercenaries Saga 3 started only for Nintendo 3DS in late-2016. So not only will this be the very first time all three games are on a Nintendo platform, but also the first time all 3 games will be accessible localized to the West.
At the moment, there has been no reveal from CIRCLE Ent. On what we can expect price-wise for the game. Nonetheless, in the announcement it was mentioned that the series would be coming to Nintendo Switch “very soon. ”
