Today, during the new Dengen Getcha livestream on Nico Nico, Chara-Ani showcased brand new gameplay of its upcoming Langrisser I & II remake.
The livestream showcased both the new visual that change the character design quite radically and the classic art by Satoshi Urushihara, which is available via bonus DLC.
If you’re wondering why they decided to change the art at all, I am as well, but at least the option is available.
We also get to see another treat in the form of a level inspired by Cho Aniki, another popular game by Langrisser creator Masaya Games. That’s certainly a blast from the past.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Langrisser series, it’s an old and glorious franchise of strategy JRPGs featuring deep gameplay and the aforementioned charming character design by Satoshi Urushihara. It debuted in 1991 with the first game that was localized in the west as Warsong for a bunch of different platforms.
Masaya Games semi-recently rebooted it with Langrisser Re:Incarnation Tensei for 3DS. Even with the localization by Aksys Games, the new chapter wasn’t very popular or well received. Luckily, this new remake lets us go back to the series’ roots.
