It’s Official: Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time Will Travel To North America [Update]


Earlier today, we received word that EB Games Canada had a listing for Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, with Atlus USA listed as publisher. Atlus have now confirmed that they will be publishing the game in their latest newsletter:



Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is an updated PSP version of Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of Time on the PlayStation 2. It adds features such as new events, new story scenes, has over 40 different endings, and lets you take vacations with your party members.


Atlus USA also specify that, while the game’s animated cutscenes will be fully-voiced, the rest of the game is unvoiced. This is due to licensing restrictions in the case of the game’s Japanese voice track. Additionally, Atlus say that the “vastly expanded script” proved prohibitive to providing an English voice track.


Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is slated for release in summer 2012. Retailers list July 24th, 2012 as a specific date. The game is available for pre-order on Amazon and GameStop now in the U.S and Canada.
