IRVINE, CALIFORNIA — APRIL 26, 2012 — ATLUS today released the opening movie from the long-awaited strategy RPG Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. The enhanced and expanded remaster of the strategy RPG classic is scheduled for release across North America this summer in both retail and downloadable (via PlayStation®Network) formats.
Never before released outside of Japan (where it is known as Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded) and widely considered the best entry in the long-running franchise, this PSP system iteration of the fourth chapter in the Growlanser saga tells of a land — once rich with culture and technology — long ago nearly obliterated by evanescent divine entities. Two millennia later, the mysterious entities appear again, threatening to bring about an end to all things unless a fabled warrior of destiny can rise against them.
Patient fans can watch the new video, now available to the public, and look forward to a long list of improvements and additions over the original game: new characters, scenarios, and events are complemented by dramatically improved loading times and a message skip option that allows players to advance the story at a faster pace. Blending a sprawling 40+ hour narrative with over 40 different possible endings; deep tactical RPG mechanics; the character designs of the legendary Satoshi Urushihara; and a host of enhancements over the original release, Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time continues the proud ATLUS tradition of epic adventures set in breathtaking worlds and gives PSP system owners something to look forward to in 2012.
