Bandai Namco Unveils Record of Grancrest War PS4 RPG
posted on by Egan Loo
The "Bandai Namco Entertainment presents Record of Grancrest War Game Live Stream" program announced the Record of Grancrest War role-playing game for PlayStation 4 on Monday. The single-player tactical role-playing game based on the ongoing anime will debut in Japan on June 14.
The group Aqua Timez performs the game's theme song "Takaga 100-Nen no" heard in the first promotional video above.
The game features the same story setting as the anime: Fearing disaster brought about by chaos, the people lived protected by “Lords;” those with the power of “Crests,” used to suppress the chaos. However, the Lords decided to abandon their posts and began fighting against each other secretly in war, stealing each other's Crests to gain dominion over one another. Among these people are Siluca, a lone mage who despises the Lords, and Theo, a vagrant knight who continues his journey of training to someday liberate his homeland from tyrannical rule. They make an oath as master and retainer, with hopes of bringing reform Atlatan, the land ruled by chaos.
The player will assume the role of Theo, and other revealed characters include Siluca Meletes, Irvin, Aishela, and Priscilla.
The game will sell in physical retail form and via digital download for 8,200 yen (about US$80), and a limited first pressing will cost 11,000 yen (US$100). People who purchase the game early will receive products codes for the Record of Lodoss War characters Parn and Deedlit.
