Are Harry Potter and Grim Grimoire linked in same the magical universe?

By Louise . July 10, 2007 . 1:19pm

When I started playing Grim Grimoire, I was ignorant of the story.  All I knew was that the game was pretty and it was an RTS.  By the end of the game's intro, I knew that the game was based in a world where magic exists.  I also saw a lot of similarities between the […]

Take a trip through time and the second dimension in Grim Grimoire

By Katie . June 25, 2007 . 1:25pm

Consoles and RTS (also known as real-time strategy) games. At worst, a mixture akin to fire and pressurized gas. At best, a tremulous liaison whose main contributor is a body of triple-A PC titles, ported to the hardware of the day with a good measure of compromise and clumsily remapped to a controller. The success […]

Meet the units of Grim Grimoire – part 2

By Katie . June 18, 2007 . 12:41pm

Lillet Blan, the protagonist of Grim Grimoire begins the game only with the skills to summon Glamour familiars (as seen in the first article). Within the first few hours of the game Lillet also learns how to control phantom warriors and Necromancy magic. Necromancy units are mostly in ethereal form, which means some deal less […]

The story is about Lillet Blan who is caught in a time loop, trapped between five days inside the Silver Star Tower. Lillet is a young sorceress and she doesn’t […]

Grim Grimoire review build in the house

By Spencer . May 20, 2007 . 5:05pm

This week Atlus is releasing Odin Sphere, a beautiful looking 2D action game developed by Vanillaware. I don’t want to steal Odin Sphere’s thunder too much, but NIS America just sent over a review build of Vanillaware’s other Playstation 2 title Grim Grimoire. We also have a concrete release date for Grim Grimoire, June 26th […]

Second opinion on Grim Grimoire

By Louise . May 1, 2007 . 6:09pm

I feel confident to say that Grim Grimoire may just be one of the best looking PS2 games if not ever, then at least this year.  While I drooled over screenshots prior to playing it, they really don’t do the game any justice.  In a generation where most companies have moved on to 3D, it’s […]

Watch: Fairies and Dragons in Grim Grimoire

By Spencer . April 29, 2007 . 11:50am

As seen in our earlier playtest there is more to Grim Grimoire than eye candy, but seeing a battle might give you a better idea about how Grim Grimoire’s system works. At the start of this battle a group of phantoms are attacking one of my bases. Since they are in astral form they can’t […]

Grasping Grim Grimoire’s game flow

By Spencer . April 29, 2007 . 10:57am

A RTS on the Playstation 2? That’s what Grim Grimoire is except there is less focus on building your base and much more combat. Each battle puts you in control of Lillet Blan, a new student at a magician’s academy who can summon magic runes. Usually, Lillet doesn’t start in a battle on her own, […]

Watch: Grim Grimoire (English) opening

By Spencer . April 25, 2007 . 1:17am

Odin Sphere isn’t the only Vanillaware game in town. NIS America is bringing Grim Grimoire out in June 2007. I just started playing a build of the US version of Grim Grimoire and the first few chapters are tutorial missions that explain how to play the game. Since Lillet Blan, the protagonist, is attending a […]

How battles in Grim Grimoire work

By Spencer . April 9, 2007 . 4:26pm

  Unlike many of NIS America’s other titles Grim Grimoire is a real time strategy game. Lillet doesn’t fight; instead she summons elves and fairies to do battle for her. When you start a battle in Grim Grimoire you have to summon units by placing a summon circle. Once the circle is on the ground […]

Meet the cast of Grim Grimoire

By Spencer . April 6, 2007 . 12:49pm

If you were wooed by Odin Sphere’s art style take a look at Grim Grimoire. Both games are being developed by Vanillaware. While Odin Sphere is a 2D action game with role playing elements, Grim Grimoire is a coined as a real time strategy game. The world is somewhat reminiscent of a certain famous wizard […]

Watch: Grim Grimoire Gameplay

By Rolando . March 6, 2007 . 12:13pm

Grim Grimoire is another title being developed by the ever famous team at Vanillaware, responsible for the really awesome yet super rare (well the Sega Saturn version anyway) game Princess Crown; and though the trailer left a lot of people breathless, myself included, some were wondering just how Grim Grimoire would play since its an […]
