Turn based?



It's interesting some of these remakes/remasters/ports seem to be Switch exclusive on the console side. Slowly approaching enough RPGs that would get me to buy a Switch (please a non-portable or price cut Nintendo).



A warrior keeps death on the mind from the moment of his first breath to the moment of his last.



This is the kind of shit that makes me wanna buy a Switch.



The fact that this isn't coming to PS4 upsets me... but then I remember I also have a Switch so it's not that big a deal, I just prefer trophies lol :P

the only switch game I want.



I love Grandia, and it being on the best platform for me, is just perfect!



 

Time for me to get into another JRPG franchise !

Wow this is very nice.



I love it and I will most likely buy it but it's bullshit that it doesn't contain Grandia 3.

Grandia 2 is still one of the best JRPGs ever made. The battle system is perfect and the story and setting has its own very unique charm.
