NIS America has announced that Langrisser I & II will be coming to North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam in early 2020.
For those unfamiliar, Langrisser is a tactical RPG series whose first entry was on the Sega Genesis back in 1991. It has received a variety of sequels and compilations since then, with the most recent one (not counting this one or the mobile title) coming out for the Nintendo DS in 2016.
In terms of gameplay, at least as far as the older titles are concerned, everything plays out similar to what you would expect out of a title of its sort: you pick commanders, hire units and have them duke it out with the opposition. Players had to be smart with choosing which units to engage enemies with, proper positioning to gain stat bonuses, as well as ensuring everyone remains healthy.
Again, what you would expect out of a tactical RPG title.
As for Langrisser I & II, they’re designed to be revamped versions of the original, with NISA explicitly stating the game will feature new art, music and presentation, while the gameplay itself will be “perfectly re-tuned for a modern SRPG feel.”
In the meantime, those interested can pre-order from the NIS America Online Store (PS4, Switch). Those who do have the option of getting a limited edition which include a copy of the game, the two-disc original soundtrack, the three-disc “Songs of War” soundtrack, a visual book, set of art cards, and collector’s box.
