Those who recall Atlus USA’s recent “G-game” teases will remember that there were in fact two titles beginning with a “G” that they intend to publish. One of these was Gungnir. The other was speculated to be Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded, an updated PSP port of Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of Time.
Recently, EB Games Canada put up a listing for Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time for PSP, along with box art, with Atlus USA listed as publisher. Additionally, the product details summarize the contents of the game:
New characters, scenarios, and events are complemented by a host of visual and technical improvements, dramatically improved loading times, and a message skip option that lets players rapidly advance the story.
Players can spend time getting to know the characters in their party, even going on a vacation with them apart from the game’s main quest. It isn’t simply a way to learn more about them and their motivations; unlocking the games 40+ possible endings requires players to make choices about who they will bond with.
40+ endings? Vacations? New events? Yup, that sounds like Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded to us, just under a different title. EB have it listed for release on July 24th, 2012, but that date may not be entirely correct. We’ll have to wait for confirmation from Atlus USA.
An Over Reloaded handshake to reader, cj iwakura, for the heads up!
Update: Slight correction. There is no “IV” in the title. It’s simply called Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time.
