imageGrowlanser IV: Overload? Forget about that title. Atlus renamed the PSP remake Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded. Producer Shinjiro Takada says while the title was originally has the Overload subtitle, the development team didn’t feel like it conveyed the number of new features in the PSP version.


Atlus added new characters and story routes to Growlanser IV. Even the original route has been updated with new event scenes.


Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded will be available on August 18, not too far off the leak from Softmap.

  • I neeeeeeeeed this :D!

  • Ladius

    Atlus USA, you could have passed on a simple Overload porting, but now that it’s Over Reloaded you really can’t skip this :P

    Really now, this is the best Growlanser game, it really deserves a localization.

    • I would easily pay $50 for an english version of this game on PSP, bling not required.

      • Fonic

        It definitely seems worth that much at least. I would love to see the PSP version of the first game as well.  And since it’s a direct sequel to the fifth one which did get localized, it’d be neat to see the sixth game localized if it ever got ported.

        • Kibbitz

          One thing at a time. Should focus on getting Over Reloaded ported and enough people supporting it first. I’m sure the rest will follow logically once there’s enough sales backing it.

          • Ladius

            Exactly, I would rejoice if we somehow managed to get G4 Over Reloaded, let’s not be greedy.

  • Darkrise

    I hope some company would bring over Growlanser again someday…

  • Almost sounds like Growlanser IV ololololo…

    I mean seriously, say it several times in succession really fast and don’t get tied.

  • raymk

    I just want silvernail to be playable this time.  I don’t care how many routes I have to take to get her.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Atlus will miss this only if they have enough money, which they don’t so they are bound to pick this up as this game could bring them small fortune. I’m sure that a lot of people are in the mood for some RPGs. ;)

    Well, seriously though, it would be a damn shame not to have this localized.

  • Where would I need to send emails to beg Atlus for this game to be localized?

  • Exkaiser

    Growlanser? Yeah, I played that back when it was called Langrisser.

    …Actually, the two series aren’t that similar despite sharing staff and art, are they.

  • skymap

    Do these games need to be played in order?

    • Ladius

      Growlanser 1, 2 and 3 share the same continuity (3-1-2 in the timeline), 4 can be considered a stand alone title and 5-6 are directly linked.

      • skymap

        Looking at the series, … are these fanservice games? Is there a lot?

        • Ladius

          No, there isn’t, don’t be fooled by the fact that Urushihara also did hentai. The series’ narrative is centered on political, ecological and supernatural issues in a fantasy context, and while there’re paths linked with heroines and an affinity system this definitely isn’t Agarest or Ar Tonelico.

  • Urushihara art is instant win.  Just bring it, @AtlusUSA.

    Overload O_O
