start brushing up on your Japanese, Grandia fans.
Squarenix is preparing for the August 4 release in
Japan, and there will be a lot more info to come during
this years E3.
and Alfina, the typical 16-year-old RPG heroes, have
already been revealed and now there are screens of
hopes to become a pilot just like his idol, Schmidt,
the "king of the skies". Alfina, bearing
more than a passing resemblance to an elf, can speak
with the holy beasts that serve as gods in the world.
She is also searching for her brother, Emelious, who
disappeared three years earlier.
III continues with the almost real-time system used
in Grandia II with some additions like an aerial attack
system and the ability to speak to the party members
during combat in order to encourage them, thus boosting
of the dev team members return from previous Grandia
games, like character designer You Yoshinari, scriptwriter
Takahiro Hasebe, and composer Noriyuki Iwadare.
tuned for more info as soon as we have. For now, do
we really have to suggest that you look at the nice
pretty screenshots? I thought not.
