Ahead of Anime Expo in Los Angeles this weekend, NIS America has announced that they will be localizing Langrisser I & II for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam, set to release in Early 2020.
Langrisser I & II is a remake containing the first two games in the Langrisser series, which released in Japan earlier this year. These classic strategy RPG games were originally released for Sega Mega Drive in 1991 and 1994 respectively. This remake is not the first time the two games are released in tandem, as the two games were also paired up for release on PlayStation in 1997.
The character redesigns were created by Ryo Nagi, known for the Ar Tonelico series, though a DLC released in Japan which allowed players to use original designs by Satoshi Urushihara. The game's musical score has been rearranged by Noriyuki Iwadare, the original composer. The localized release will also be fully voiced in Japanese with English text.
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.
