NIS America made a significant announcement during a panel at PAX South 2020. The company announced that demos for the upcoming games Langrisser I & II would launch very soon.

The demos will appear on every platform the games will be releasing on, ensuring that games can try out the game wherever they want.

The games are both remasters of the original titles. The official YouTube announcement trailer states: “Discover two timeless tales, brought together for a new age! When the forces of darkness seek to extinguish life as we know it, the descendants of Light will emerge and vanquish chaos with the legendary sword, Langrisser! Remade for modern consoles, Langrisser I & II brings new light to this legendary strategy RPG series.”

The demo will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. There are currently no plans to release the title on the Xbox One.

NIS America announced that players could try out both games in the demo. Six chapters will be included in the game, giving players a chance to try out the gameplay and get a glimpse into the storyline. Little additional information has been announced concerning the content of the game.

The remaster of the title includes high-definition graphics, reorchestrated music, and quality-of-life improvements. There have also been localization improvements. A new character has been added to the roster, along with new story choices. Players familiar with the old game can expect a new experience while retaining the charm of the classic tales.

DLC has also been announced for the game, but the website does not yet have any information about future content. Players can play the demo to determine if they want to purchase the title at launch or wait for a complete edition to be released.

Two versions are being sold for the upcoming game. The standard edition only includes the base games. The Limited edition contains a physical version of the game on Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4, art book, original 2-disc soundtrack, and art cards all contained within a special collector’s box. The limited-edition is available for preorder through the NISA Online Store.

Langrisser I & II will be released in North America for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on March 10, 2020.
