The first Langrisser game was originally released for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 in Japan in 1991 and brought to the west under the title Warsong. Langrisser II is set several hundred years after the first game, was originally released in Japan in 1994 for the Sega Mega Drive, and later remade for the Super Famicom under the title Der Langrisser. The remake includes new graphics, voice acting, re-orchestrated music, and multiple quality-of-life improvements to the original releases. A new trailer, viewable below, compares the visuals of the original releases and the upcoming remakes and shows the option to switch between the new art style with character designs from Ryo Nagi and the classic style featuring designs from Satoshi Urushihara.
