GungHo Brings Grandia II RPG to Steam
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Game publisher GungHo Online Entertainment America announced on Monday that it will release the Grandia II role-playing game on PC via Steam. Game Arts originally released Grandia II on the Sega Dreamcast in 2000, and on the PlayStation 2 and PC in 2002. GungHo has not yet announced a date for the game's Steam release.
Grandia II's story focuses on Ryudo, a mercenary hired to escort Elena, a songstress of the Church of Granas. Elena is possessed by Millenia, a sentient portion of Valmar, a dark god. Ryudo and his party are charged to seek out a legendary sword in order to destroy the remnants of Valmar.
Last month, GungHo opened a survey focused on games from the Game Arts library and the PC platform. A GungHo representative indicated that favorable responses from this survey led to its decision to release Grandia II on Steam. Game Arts became a subsidiary of GungHo Online Entertainment in 2004.
