Langrisser Langrisser

Due out this summer in Japan, the 3DS revival of the tactical RPG series is set in a world mostly sunk underwater. In it, a boy who’s obtained the holy blade Excalibur sets out to fight imperial forces to save a girl from whom he’s been separated.

Though the series has predominantly been based on Western fantasy motifs, this time it features some cyberpunk elements.

Combat consists of 10-versus-10 unit battles, with chibi 3D characters fighting in tight spaces. The rock-paper-scissors dynamic remains in effect between foot soldiers, cavalry, and archers.

Character design is being handled by Hiroshi Kaieda. And the magazine confirms there will, in fact, be bikini armor girls.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou and Otakomu.
