MonkeyPaw Looking Into Langrisser Games As PSOne Imports

0

MonkeyPaw recently jumped back into the PSOne imports business with The Rapid Angel and Yakiniku Bugyou!, and they have more planned. Langrisser might be part of those plans, too.

 

On MonkeyPaw’s Facebook page, a fan asked about the possibility of the retro game revival company publishing Langrisser games. A representative replied:

 

“Thanks for the kinds words and support. And sorry we were away from the retro imports for a while. Fortunately, we’ve got some fun games lined up. We work closely with Victor [Ireland] so we’ll be talking about Langrisser. Nothing is impossible, everything depends on fan interest. And the sales of prior games is the best indicator. So please spread the word on games like Arc [the Lad] and Alundra. We’ll give the fans what they want. Thanks again for finding us here.”

 

Aside from the Gemesos and Sega Saturn games, two compilations, Langrisser I & II and Langrisser IV & V: Final Edition, also exist for the PlayStation.

 

A big thanks to Pixel_Kaiser on Twitter for the awesome tip!
