You Can Save A Character Destined To Die Growlanser IV In Over Reloaded

By Spencer . July 11, 2011 . 4:01pm

growiv2Tadayoshi Ishihara, director of Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded, talked about the PSP version mentioning how the game has grown greatly over the original release. Players familiar with the PlayStation 2 version will see new event scenes made just for Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded, which expand on how the characters connect.


One interesting tidbit Ishihara mentions in an Atlus interview is it’s possible to save a character who is expected to die in the original version. Since fans experienced tragedy due to a character’s death in the PS2 release, they can savor the achievement of rescuing them in Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded. Ishihara doesn’t reveal who this is or if you can rescue multiple characters, but the story will change accordingly depending on your actions in Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded. Ishihara encourages players to try different things while playing the PSP version.


Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded has over 40 endings. The game even keeps track of which endings you earned. Just to give you an idea about how much new dialogue there is in this version, Ishihara says there is roughly double the amount of voice acting as there is in Growlanser IV: The Wayfarer of Time.


Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded comes out on August 18 and adds these two new characters…

  • So like Growlanser IV fused with Growlanser IV to create OVER Growlanser IV?! This game is so hot I feel the burning pain from this net information alone!!

    Also GURETO idea I love saving game characters, that’s what a hero has to do!!

    In the original version you always had the chance to save a person’s life (change their fate) and after that was done you can actually view it your homunculus “doll house” and see who it was (it’s usually an NPC with a name) the other cool thing is that you can view what happens when you don’t save that person.

    So yay you can save Alphonse now! (judging by that screenshot seeing as he never was alive during that part of the story!)

    I need this game in my life.

    It’s essential.

    • solbalmung

      dude can’t stress enough what you said. Hope Atlus/Nisa/Xseed/Aksys bring this one to the stateside….

    • Ryos

      Every time another story on Growlanser IV appears, another piece of me dies knowing we won’t be getting this here…at least without importing. :( 

      • DanteJones

        I dunno, it IS Atlus, but… I dunno. :(

  • Give it to me ‘-‘)>

  • Kuro666

    Uwah, now THAT’S worth buying. I liked Growlanser IV, but I guess this version will be much better.

  • aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh I want this so bad

  • #IBlame #SCEA @playstation:twitter as to why the good PSP games stay Japan-only.

    Regardless, this is how I feel about Growlanser IV PSP at the moment:

    • cj_iwakura

      Hell no. Blame Atlus USA. They don’t give a crap about Growlanser. This is all them right now. But I’m willing to give them a chance. Prove me wrong.

      Both 1 & 4 had enough new content to warrant a localization. Atlus USA did not want to after V’s failure.

      • I have a strong feeling that if #SCEA would bring this over to the US by buying the US publishing and marketing rights off Atlus, Growlanser IV has a fighting chance… in America.

  • Darkrise

    But can anyone save NA from it’s lack of Grownlanser games?

  • I havent play any of the Growlanser game besides the PSP demo and I gotta say I like the fairy and art :D

  • To live is to play growlanser 4 psp version

  • They have to bring this game over. They just freaking have to. Where do we send messages about needing this game.

  • cj_iwakura

    They aren’t the only two new characters.

  • epy

    The fatalist in me says: Twice the voice acting + tons of script to translate x attitude of Atlus USA towards Growlanser = :(

    The gamer in me… screw it, I WANT THIS GAME!

  • So…. the next news will be about how this is going to be localized…right? RIGHT?!
