Game Arts’ legendary RPG Grandia, and its follow up Grandia 2, will both be headed over to the Nintendo Switch, publisher Gung Ho announced today (via IGN). The original games are widely regarded as being among the greatest RPGs of all time, praised for their gorgeous art and their innovative battle system (the latter is regarded as being peerless by many genre veterans to this day). Now, they will be made available to play on a modern console for the first time.

The original Grandia was released as a showcase RPG for Sega’s Saturn, and was uniquely optimized for its difficult hardware. It was later ported to the original PlayStation (it was this version that was subsequently localized and released in the west by the now defunct Working Designs). Grandia 2 would follow on the next generation consoles, and while it wasn’t quite as well received as the first, is still pretty beloved overall. Switch fans who have been treated to some fantastic RPGs on the system, such as the just released Octopath Traveler (which has an innovative battle system of its own) are likely to enjoy what Grandia offers.

The best part? The game is due out this Winter, and we will see more of it at PAX West. Plus, there is more good news: Grandia 1 will be coming to Steam (the second game was released for Steam already some years ago). So it’s just RPG goodness all around, it seems.
