Growlanser - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» The original Growlanser captivated Playstation gamers a decade ago and kicked off a series of sequels in the years since. To mark the 10th anniversary of the game, Atlus is releasing a Playstation Portable port which features two new heroines named Amelie (CV: Yukari Tamura) and a Featherian named Melfie (CV: Maho Tomita) with their respective new scenarios and new routes to take in the game. The graphics from the original game haven't been stretched to fit the PSP's widescreen but have instead been redrawn so everything looks natural instead of elongated.

The game starts in the land of Rolandia where a lad named Carmaine is roused from his slumber by his "sister" Louise and a impish homunculus named Tippi who's a little bundle of energy with a powerful kick attack. They bring him downstairs to see the court sorceress Sandra who took Carmaine in when he was an orphan and raised him as her own. Sandra tells Carmaine of a disturbing prophecy that puts him in the position of either destroying the world or saving it from ruin. To discover his destiny, Sandra encourages him to venture out into the world (with Tippi in tow) to find his path and fulfill the prophecy.

The distinctive artwork in Growlanser is by Satoshi Urushihara and the battle system is dubbed "
Real-time Mission Clear" which features a mix of techniques including command selection, charging up, opportune timing of attacks, and the participation of other parties other than the hero's team and the enemy.
