Comparison trailer streamed for PS4/Switch/PC game

NIS America announced on Thursday that it will release the Langrisser I & II game remake collection for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in North America on March 10. The game will then debut in Europe on March 13, and in Australia and New Zealand on March 20. The company began streaming a trailer that compares the remakes to the original games:

The collection shipped in Japan for the PS4 and Switch in April after a delay from February. The developers cited planning the collection's demo version, which launched in February, as contributing to the delay.

The release is Extreme and Chara-Ani's compiled remake of both Langrisser I and Langrisser II. The remake includes new visuals, voice recordings, and user interface design. A new heroine named Betty (voiced by Hisako Tōjō) and multiple story routes appear in the games. Composer Noriyuki Iwadare returned to rearrange his original music with a mix of nostalgia and modernity.

NIS America's limited-edition release for the PS4 and Switch will bundle a visual book, two-disc soundtrack, and art cards.

Nippon Computer Systems software division Masaya released the first game in the series for the Mega Drive and PC in 1991, and the game also launched 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 released only in Japan in 1998 for the Sega Saturn. The series' games have received multiple ports and remakes.

Beijing-based game company ZLONGAME's global version of its Langrisser Mobile smartphone game based on the Langrisser series launched in January.
