Game Arts has announced that the classic PlayStation 1 and Sega Saturn JRPG, Grandia, will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on November 21, 2023, at 11 AM ET/ 8 AM PT.
No pricing has been announced, but the title has been confirmed to be part of PlayStation Plus’ November Game Catalog for Premium tier subscribers. It’s also worth noting that this upcoming release just seems to be a port with enhancements and isn’t the HD re-release seen on Nintendo Switch and PC.
Additionally, while not yet confirmed, this PSN release of Grandia will likely feature trophy support when considering other original PlayStation 1 ports.
Grandia tells the story of Justin, who is out exploring the ruins of an Angelou Civilization. Upon arriving, he is requested to travel east and find out the secret of why this ancient civilization disappeared. The game was developed by Game Arts, the developer of the Lunar series, and features a turn-based battle system and classic RPG storytelling. Players can anticipate over 80 hours of gameplay, 80 magic spells and techniques, and over 200 weapons and items.
Grandia HD Collection on Nintendo Switch features enhanced visuals and fully supports the hybrid system. In addition, this collection on Switch includes both Grandia HD Remaster and Grandia II HD Remaster.
Grandia HD Remaster includes exclusive Steam cards and achievements, along with widescreen support and customizable resolutions. Players will also be able to remap the controls on the keyboard and gamepad.
