Nusakan is one of the characters who can join your list SaGa Frontier. Unfortunately, the original release of the game in 1998 only offered Riki and Blue this opportunity. In Ricky’s case, this was while searching for rings. As for Blue, it’s when he tries to get the Hide Rune. Now, though, there’s been fun for longtime fans SaGa Frontier Remastered Asellus is allowed to recruit Dr. Nusakan. It is also partly linked to cutting content from the original version.
It’s actually a good idea to do so since Dr. Nusakan is one of the best characters in the game. Likewise, he’s also a mystic, and his recruiting adds even more flavor to your game as Asellus since she is half-mystical. However, remember that this can only be done later in the story. Furthermore, please note that this guide contains minor spoilers in the future.
SaGa Frontier Remastered: Asellus Guide – Recruit Dr. Nusakan and see additional story content
To get Dr. Nusakan on your list as Asellus, you’ll need to first complete the Dark Labyrinth portion of her story. This will automatically lead Zozma to join your team. This red-headed fighter plays an important role in the following parts.
Anyway, go ahead and fly to Koorong. When exiting the port, you’ll see Zozma hanging out. He’ll tell you there’s a mystic doctor, too, who happens to be in town.
Head down a few screens until you reach the alley with the three birds. Enter the door with a well-lit sign and interact with the skeleton. Open the room to Dr. Nusakan’s office. He seems very curious about Asellus’ status as a half-mystic, and he’ll happily join your party.
You will have a strong ally with you, who can cast the magic of death from the beginning. It is very useful as you can easily eliminate powerful enemies, including junior bosses (for example, Jotnar if you are still looking for the Shield Card). Even better, Dr. Nusakan is equipped with Mystic Wear, so you’re free to give him stronger armor pieces.
But it doesn’t stop there. As part of the additional content at SaGa Frontier RemasteredAsellus’ story has some additional anecdotes. Assuming Zozma is already with you, visit Shrike’s Bio Research Lab. Zozma will comment that this place is used as an experiment on Sufis.
Go up one floor and check out the central room. Inside, you will find a researcher named Nashera. Asellus will ask if she is willing to be part of an experiment. Come on and accept her suggestion.
Follow Nasheera around the facility (crazy scientists won’t attack you for now). After conducting the experiment, Asellus would be disgusted by Nasheera’s plans. Once you have escaped, you can check out the rooms inside the facility to free the captured humans and Sufis. After editing the two test subjects in the room on the ground floor, she will reprimand you.
If you say you are “ready”, then your boss’s battle against the Earth Dragon, a tough boss to ironic at SaGa Frontier. However, you can also say no if you aren’t ready for it yet. You can always come back later to challenge Nasheera and Earth Dragon. Keep in mind that the room at the bottom of the facility (which was previously the location of the Earth Dragon) is now locked. The entrance area is basically where you’ll end up fighting the monster now.
Note 1: If you visit the Bio Research Lab earlier in the game (say, to get cotton), events won’t start because Zozma isn’t with you yet.
Note 2: For clarity, I first encounter the Nasheera / Earth Dragon, then leave the area without fighting the President. This is when I returned to Corong. It’s also when I saw Zozma there and when he told me about recruiting Dr. Nusakan. I’m not quite sure if these events should take place in the order.
SaGa Frontier Remastered Releases on April 15th across steam.
