About the Story:
Langrisser I: The forces of darkness are descending upon the kingdom of Baldea. Take up your sword as Prince Ledin, and discover the evil that lies in the heart of the Dalsis empire.
Langrisser II: The forces of darkness once again threaten the realm. Thrust in between warring factions, it is up to our hero Elwin to navigate this war and determine which path will bring peace to this conflict.
Langrisser I & II is returning with both classic stories of good and evil now remade in beautiful high-definition visuals, reorchestrated music, and quality-of-life improvements to the gameplay and user experience that made these strategy RPGs truly LEGENDARY.
- Blade Honed to Perfection – Experience two classic titles with new art, music, and presentation.
- Modernizing a Timeless Tale – Perfectly re-tuned gameplay for a modern SRPG feel.
- Langrisser and Alhazard – Two legendary swords, two legendary tales—brought back to life with new
localization and a new character!
If the name Langrisser doesn’t ring a bell, it’s an old and glorious franchise of strategy JRPGs featuring deep gameplay and the 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 rebooted the series with Langrisser Re:Incarnation Tensei for 3DS a while ago. Even with the localization by Aksys Games, the new chapter wasn’t very popular or well received. Luckily, this new remake brings us back to the series’ roots.
Do keep in mind that, while the remakes include new artwork, the classic (and absolutely gorgeous) artwork by Satoshi Urushihara is included in the package, so you can enjoy it to your heart’s content.
