Vanillaware-Developed GrimGrimoire OnceMore Introduces Necromancy School of Magic

Publisher NIS America has shared a brief new gameplay clip for the upcoming localized release of the Vanillaware-developed real-time strategy title, GrimGrimoire OnceMore.

If you missed it, check out our impressions of the game’s demo.

One of the four schools of magic, Necromancy, is highlighted. As introduced by Opalneria Rain, this magic type is supposedly Holy, but it’s categorized as a Dark art. Users of this practice will summon the undead, who are strong against the Sorcery school. Further, units of this type are called Astrals and can’t be harmed by physical attacks. Finally, student Hiram Menthe is also briefly highlighted as one who admires professor Rain.

Originally released on PS2, GrimGrimoire OnceMore tells the story of Lillet Blan, a young girl who recently joined the Silver Star Tower academy and wishes to become a great magician. As she learns the art of summoning familiars, she will have to do her best to deal with the perils hidden within the tower.

A new gameplay mechanic, Grand Magic, has been implemented. This allows access to exceptional skills, such as Mana Burst, which deals fire damage across a wide radius, and Resurrection, restoring the health of familiars. In addition, a new skill tree has also been added, where players can spend coins earned from completing optional missions to obtain upgrades, including familiar strengthening, magic buffs, and more.

Regarding convenience, fast-forward mode does the self-explanatory to make battle actions pass by more swiftly. Further, the newly added Hard difficulty will challenge those who want to push their strategic know-how to their limits. Other new features comprise the aspect ratio being upgraded from 4:3 to 16:9 and voice lines being added to combat.
