Today Chara-Ani announced a “Luxury Limited Edition” for its upcoming Langrisser I & II remake, which will bring back the old and glorious strategy JRPG series.
To be precise, there are two limited editions. The first, of which you can see a mockup in the first image in the gallery below, costs 18,144 yen including taxes. That translates roughly into $160.
It includes a download code with the “Classic Mode” that restores the original Langrisser character design by acclaimed mangaka Satoshi Urushihara, an artbook, a “Classic Art Collection,” a “Complete Sound Collection” Blu-Ray, a download code for the “Complete Sound Collection Sound Data,” and another for the “Original Sound Mode” which restores the original soundtrack in the game. All the items are stored in a nice box illustrated by Urushihara-sensei himself.
The second option is a lot pricier, retailing at 27,144 yen including taxes (translating into just north of $240). The only difference is that this box will come with an additional item, a Dakimakura cover featuring artwork by Satoshi Urushihara displaying Langrisser II character Cherry in a pose and outfit which are rather unsafe for work. Unsurprisingly, gamers under eighteen won’t be able to purchase it.
The cover is made by popular dakimakura manufacturer A&J.
If you’re not familiar with what a dakimakura is, it’s a typically Japanese body-sized pillow featuring anime, manga, and video game characters in various stages of undress.
You can check out a mockup of the edition below, alongside a look at the dakimakura cover. It’s censored, but it may still be considered unsafe for work in some workplace, so hit that arrow at your own risk.
Langrisser I & II releases for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on February 7th. At the moment no western launch has been announced.
