Growlanser: Heritage Of War Comes To PS3 Next Week

By Spencer . March 2, 2014 . 11:20pm

imageAs expected, Growlanser: Heritage of War will be re-released as a PlayStation Network download for PS3 this week. Atlus released Growlanser: Heritage of War in North America, but the PS2 version which came with a wristwatch had a low print run.


Growlanser: Heritage of War is actually Growlanser V. Atlus USA’s version has some enhancements like smarter enemy AI and tougher difficulty compared to the Japanese version.

    That screenshot is the section of the game where I got stuck and promptly gave up. I’ve always liked the story of these games but could just never get through them. Dammit Ziekwalt

    How much?

  • Umar

    No EU I take it?

    • Franggio Hogland

      Don’t say that, they recently published P3 FES on the European PSN. I’m hopeful.

      • Umar

        ahh yes true!! I am hopeful…I will support this game in a heartbeat

          “Praise the Golden Sun” – I see what you did there, and I love you.

          • Umar

            I love you too :) lol Two of my favorite RPGs!

    • Timovisch

      I still own my PAL version on the PS2 so I’m sure it’ll eventually come to our PSN. :)

  • Eilanzer

    The two games in growlanser generations still are the best of the series…especially…Growlanser 3, wow that game was awesome!!!

    • Paulette

      We need GL2 and GL3 on PSN too ! Atlus USA, it’s up to you !

      • Eilanzer

        I still have hope for a Growlanser 1 english version in ANY platform…Hope…Maybe with Growlanser 6 in the package?!…

        • Paulette

          I don’t see how that would go… For me, GL6 is dead, it’s clear, but GL1 might have a tiny chance… Gainjinworks seems interested in the PSP port, but is seems Atlus USA blocks the rights (same thing for GL2+3 in fact).

          Don’t know why so many things don’t happen for such ridiculous reasons…

  • Trotmeister

    So I take it it’s possible to play this on Vita as well?

    • DividedSeraph

      No, this is a PS2 game, only PS1 are Vita compatible.

  • DividedSeraph

    Uh, Generations(Working Designs’ LE of 2 & 3) came with the watch, not Heritage of War. That came with an artbook and some pins.

    • mockturtle

      Oh, crap, you beat me to it.

  • mockturtle

    It was Growlanser Generations that came with a watch, not Heritage of War. #corrections

  • FX102A

    Bought by PAL copy for like £10 years ago and still haven’t unsealed it. Now I can purchase this PSN version and keep it as such.

  • H_Floyd

    Growlanser V is my least favorite of the series. However… everyone with a PS3 needs to buy it and support what is one of the best SRPG series in existence to encourage Atlus (and its internal team Career Soft) to create Growlanser VII. FOR CONSOLES.

    Oh, and the game isn’t bad either.

  • NativeCain

    Keychain. Not a watch.
