Sequels to console games rarely make their way to mobile devices — and if they do, that usually spells trouble for a company. However, it can also serve as a rebirth to a series that needs a fresh start and a wider audience. Langrisser is looking to do exactly that, as it’s a more niche strategy Japanese role-playing game series that primarily only released in Japan.
The story behind Langrisser starts off similarly to most Japanese role-playing (JRPG) games. Matthew, the main protagonist, along with childhood friends Almeda and Grenier, is attacked by a demon-controlled empire and are forced to run away from their town. That escape becomes a bigger narrative after the team is tasked with reviving the legendary sword Langrisser to fight against the empire, who wants to use the Alhazard, the dark counterpart to Langrisser.
