Grandia II Being Remastered For PC And Steam


Grandia II is coming to PC via Steam in remastered format, GungHo Online Entertainment have announced. The Steam version of the game is being released following feedback from a survey subsidiary Game Arts conducted in April.


The Steam version will use the Dreamcast release of Grandia II as a base and will include high-definition visuals, support for mouse and keyboard controls, and integration with Steam achievements and trading cards.


“With the rise of digital downloads, it is especially important that classic games continue to remain available to play in some form,” president of GungHo America Jun Iwasaki said. “Grandia II was chosen for a PC re-release because it represents both a hallmark of the Grandia series and an example of how great JRPGs can be.”


Development of Grandia II for Steam only began recently, so the game doesn’t have a release date yet.
