Today NIS America showcased plenty of gameplay of the upcoming Langrisser I & II remake.
We get to see plenty of strategy JRPG goodness, and if you’re unfamiliar with the franchise you should probably take a look, as it features some pretty unique mechanics.
We also see how you can change artwork between thye original (and absolutely splendid) character design by Satoshi Urushihara and the new art created for the remake. The same can be done with the music.
If you’re unfamiliar with the original Langrusser and Langrisser II, here’s an official description:
“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.”
Langrisser I & II will launch on on March 10, 2020 in North America, on March 13 in Europe, and on March 20 in Australia and New Zealand for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
