Grandia is coming to Switch this winter. According to a statement by publisher GungHo, Grandia and Grandia II HD Remaster are both heading to Nintendo’s hybrid handheld.
OMG!!!! I absolutely adored number one on PS1 and number 2 on Dreamcast, these are two of the best JRPGs ever made. This is quite epic news!!! The Switch is becoming a must own console for JRPG fans.
Just hope it comes out this year! Never played 1 but played the rest of them. G2 is prob in my top 10 games of all time. The music, the characters, the story ( soooo good! ) and the twist it has. ( Melfice battle is still prob my fav in the game. )
Holy fucking shit, what
Never played the original but did play 2, 3 and Xtreme. 2 is up there in my list of top RPG's. This is great news.
The only one I played was Xtreme. I enjoyed it, but from what I understand it is by far the weakest title. Looking forward to playing these two.
You missed the best one. Make sure to play 1 this time.
Wow, if they could add part 3! Switch this holiday, must get!
This is an instant buy - Grandia 2 is still one of my favourite RPGs of all time!
This is , to me, the best news I'll ever hear all year. I mean, what else could top that as lover of true classic JRPG's?? The first two of the series are without a contest, the best!! Way to go Gungho online. Let's see if Sega can follow suit. The Switch is rapidly becoming my preferred console, more JRPG goodness!
Best news this year indeed! Was so excited for smash in December, even more so that now Simon/Richtor Belmont coming to it, but Grandia announcement just put smash on the back burner for me. ( great, now I have the grandia 2 boss battle music stuck in my head!) Speaking of the music, hope it stays mostly the same.
I had the first one but never played it. So this a must for Switch
Some of my fave RPGs. Hope it's based on the SEGA versions as the PS1 version of Grandia's visuals were awful. Not played the PC version of Grandia II but again hope it's based on the DC version. Best visuals.
Suppose to be both done in HD. Gonna be weird seeing Ryudo and Skye in HD.
This is awesome but I hate how vague release dates are for Switch titles. Dark Souls: Summer 2018...October >.> So Winter is a bit disappointing to read.
that's one example..
Smash; December. All the winter gaming I need for switch unless grandia 2 comes this year or around Jan-Feb 2019. But yeah the timing of some games are horrible. Still waiting on Wargroove release date, show the game a year ago and still no date. Coming soon goes along way besides Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall of 20xx only to have the famous delay.
Well i guess it good they are putting the first one on steam but if this a better grandia 2 remaster then i wish they put it on steam a well
Holy F*ck balls. i usually avoid hd remasters but these are 2 of the best jrpgs ever. Especially grandia 2. I loved the story for that game
The story, one of the greatest ever.
Grandia 2 is one of the best JRPGs and best games of all time. Fight me lol
great news, but i dont have switch.. this must be timed exclusive though.. a PS4 version at some point is inevitable.
This is GungHo we're talking about. These days they are more into handhelds and mobile.
why is that? What if Nintendo is helping out in some way? Why must it be a timed exclusive? Because you say so?
lol so defensive. i am saying that there is big chance this ends up on PS4 and that is my opinion.. if it doesn't so be it, not gonna have sleepless nights. you will at least have some nice games to power that switch on for.
@bouzebbal - plenty more games than this, but thanks for the kind words :)
Getting this day 1. The Switch has so many good games it isn't funny. Another great title for the Switch.
it isn't funny to lie, you said that before me!
Write a proper sentence. I can't understand what you're saying
Start by making sense first
2 on Dreamcast, those were great times, I miss my DC 😅
Miss my DC as well. Need a new lense for mine, reads some games but not many. Grandia 2 isn't 1.
If your really pent up on fixing it, the lenses go for about $30 nowadays...😎
Amazing.. good news
This is what I’d call a day one.
To be on switch...., Millenia says it all... http://pcmedia.ign.com/pc/i...
It's sad that grandia was overshadowed by Final Fantasy VII at the time. But this gives great opportunity to rise again! I hope that a lot of ppl will play and enjoy these games! They are excellent in every way! So revolutionary at the time. A lot of jrpgs followed its footsteps many years later into what jrpgs are today!
Wow. That's a name I hadn't heard in a while. Loved these games. Definitely going to buy.
Gawd, I really hope one of these days Skies of Arcadia is going to get a gorgeous remake/remaster... Liked Grandia 2 on Dreamcast btw. Pretty straightforward and linear, but the battle-system was a lot of fun...
FKING HELL WUT!!! well i guess i need a switch now lol.
This is awesome loved the first 2 Grandia games I still have them wish they threw Grandia 3 in the mix that one was my fave. So the Grandia Collection and Tales of Vesperia can't wait this winter.
I love this series. At the time part 2 released, it was my favorite jrpg after FF7. Its still up there as one of my all time favorites to this day. Part 1 was good as well but 2 hit home for me.
