It has been a very long time since the Langrisser series has appeared in Japan. Fifteen years the last Langrisser title was originally released but it seems that Masaya Games is looking to bring out a brand new Langrisser for the Nintendo 3DS. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine, courtesy of Otakomu, is saying that the game will be released in Japan this summer and it will no longer feature the classic art style of Satoshi Urushihara as the artwork is now being done by Hiroshi Kaieda.
It appears that unlike past games in the Langrisser series, the title will feature steampunk elements instead of fantasy elements found in past titles. The battles in Langrisser will feature 10 on 10 unit battles featuring chibi characters battling on a grid and the story takes place in a world flooded by water and follows a man with the sacred sword Excalibur who is willing to take down an empire to find a girl he once knew as a child.
