Citing their "commitment to bringing the very best Japanese RPGs and strategy titles to European gamers", KOEI has announced the upcoming September 28, 2007 release of GrimGrimoire in Europe. The quick localisation will doubtless please impatient gamers: GrimGrimoire was released in North America only last June.
The release of GrimGrimoire so soon after the final volume of the popular Harry Potter series of books does not seem to have been entirely coincedental. KOEI Sales Manager Will Curley states, "Just when people might be thinking they’ll never have a chance to visit a school of wizardry ever again GrimGrimoire arrives right on cue to offer gamers a magical world of sorcery, strategy and a mysterious tale that players will be itching to get to the bottom of."
Co-developed by Nippon Ichi and Vanillaware, GrimGrimoire is a strategy RPG with some RTS elements. For those wondering whether this new wizarding world will meet expectations, RPGamer is pleased to offer some helpful reviews.
