Aka the best news you will read all day.
Of the many JRPGs in today’s world, Game Arts’ Grandia 2 still holds a very special place in the hearts of many veterans. Its story, visuals and amazing battle system all combined to make it one of the best RPGs ever and most certainly one of the best the Dreamcast had to offer. Thanks a survey by GungHo Online Entertainment America for properties from Game Arts, Grandia 2 will be returning in remastered form to Steam.
Fan feedback to the survey was apparently “overwhelming” which influenced the decision for a remastered port. The port will not only have remastered visuals but support mouse/keyboard set-ups and game pads. Steam Achievements and Trading Cards will also be added.
GungHo America president Jun Iwasaki stated that, “With the rise of digital downloads, it is especially important that classic games continue to remain available to play in some form. Grandia II was chosen for a PC re-release because it represents both a hallmark of the Grandia series and an example of how great JRPGs can be.”
