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.
Interestingly, a Limited Edition is also coming for PS4 and Switch, including the following:
- Visual Book
- Original 2-Disc Soundtrack
- Songs of War 3-Disc Soundtrack
- Collector’s Box
- Collectible Art Cards
