Langrisser Mobile looks to capture the spirit of the classic tactical JRPG franchise by hitting all of those key nostalgic beats. Over 300 levels from across the series return, on tactical maps that can go as large as a 24x29 grid, and all set on the familiar continent of El Sallia. You’ll also be able to collect and fight with (or against) plenty of familiar faces from across the series, including Elwin, Dieharte and Luna.
Zlong has also brought back the series’ original composer, Noriyuki Iwadare, who’s joined by a star-studded Japanese voice cast that includes Ryotaro Okiayu (Fire Emblem, Bleach, Fate/Apocrypha).
Battles in Langrisser follow a familiar ‘rock ,paper, scissors’ style of gameplay based on the class of your hero, although there are two elements to a unit. The hero has their own special class but there is also an accompanying ‘troop’ that battles first. These will follow a basic class system and come in three tiers. Your heroes can be customised via their own class/progression tree, as well as different troops types and equipment. Similar to Fire Emblem, heroes and equipment all come with a rating.
If you want to try and get up to speed on the game while you wait for release, there’s an official wiki online that’s already been populated with some initial information and stats, which may help in your squad planning.
