With the July 31st launch date fast approaching, Atlus has put together a new trailer for their remake of Growlanser IV. For those not familiar with the series, it is a long running Strategy RPG series from Atlus that has received only 2 releases in America. Growlanser Generations was brought over by Working Designs and Growlanser: Heritage of War was eventually brought by Atlus. Unfortunately sales in America have been timid for the series which makes this one of the last few chances we may ever see it. After all, this is the franchise that bankrupted Working Designs.
Gameplay for the series is defined by it’s quicker play styles due to the active time and free movement systems. It does have relationship trees as well so those that were fans of Persona’s romance options should feel right at home here. This being one of Atlus’s biggest franchises, it is a shame that more releases haven’t come over. Now that we are at the tale end of the PSP’s life, hopefully the adoption rate will be enough to warrant future releases. As a fan of Plastic Little, it’s nice to see some more of that hot Satoshi Urushihara art come stateside.
