Nippon Ichi Software also has a new Japanese trailer GrimGrimoire Once More issued. This one revolves around basic glamor magic. Lillet Blan can call on the acquaintances with natural powers. Finally, we got a short lesson on the combat system, saw the characters and got to know the story.
The comprehensive remaster of Vanillaware’s real-time strategy game (13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Dragon’s Crown, Odin Sphere) allows you to summon the so-called familiars from magical books.
A disastrous time warp
In GrimGrimoire OnceMore you take on the role of young magician Lillet Blan. She is trapped in a five-day time warp that ends in disaster. Lillet studies at a magic academy with the best teachers.
However, the building is shrouded in numerous mysteries. To solve this, avert the catastrophe and escape the time warp, it is necessary to study the available magic books.
In the real-time strategy battles you summon the so-called familiars from the magic books. These include, for example, golems, fairies or dragons, all with their own strengths and weaknesses. You have to strategically adapt your team to the opponents.
This is all new in GrimGrimoire OnceMore
Of course, the innovations include HD graphics and adaptations to modern screen resolutions. With fast-forward features and save options in the middle of the fight, the game should also be more fun. On the other hand, an intensified hard difficulty provides optional new challenges.
Two new gameplay systems will also be introduced. With “Great Magic” there are four new types of magic for combat, a skill tree for the acquaintances allows individual reinforcements and there are new voices. You can see illustrations in the new gallery.
GrimGrimoire OnceMore is scheduled for release in Japan on July 28 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. There is no confirmation for the West yet. The original GrimGrimoire was released worldwide in 2007 for PS2.
