If you’re envying Japanese players who have their hands on the Record of Grancrest War PS4 game, we have help. Well, a little, at least for now.
Bandai Namco has released the video of the game’s opening animation. The video is also our first long listen to “Taka ga 100-nen no,” the game’s theme song performed by Aqua Timez:
The new RPG casts you in the role of Theo, and you’ll meet a variety of familiar characters along the way… including, if you were an early adopter, Parn and Deedlit from Record of Lodoss War!
Lodoss and Grancrest share a creator — Ryo Mizuno — and while the two series take place in different continuities, we’re so happy to see them back that we don’t care how they got here.
There’s no information yet on a potential Western release of the Record of Grancrest War game.
