posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Beijing-based game company ZLONGAME began streaming a gameplay video on Saturday for the global version of its Langrisser Mobile smartphone game based on the Langrisser series. The video features Japanese audio and English text, and teases that players will be able to find out "what happened with Prince Ledin back in Langrisser I (Warsong)."
The company streamed two other gameplay videos on November 15 and November 27.
The global version will launch next year. The franchise's copyright holder Extreme authorized ZLONGAME to develop the game. ZLONGAME released the game in China in August. The game will feature 300 levels, all of the heroes from the main series, and a soundtrack composed by series composer Noriyuki Iwadare.
Nippon Computer Systems' software division Masaya released the first Langrisser game for the Mega Drive and PC in 1991, and it was also released in North America the same year under the title Warsong. The series went on to release four more main games, with Langrisser V: The End of Legend being released only in Japan in 1998 for the Sega Saturn. The games have been ported and remade on multiple occasions.
The latest entry in the series is Langrisser Re:Incarnation Tensei for the Nintendo 3DS, which shipped in Japan in July 2015, and in the West in April 2016. Kadokawa Games will release Langrisser I & II, a compiled remake of the first two games in the series, in Japan on February 7.
