The team that brought you the beautiful Odin Sphere and Muramasa has a new action/strategy release on the way. New trailer after the jump.

Some of the most intricately crafted and gorgeous games within the anime-inspired field come from Vanillaware. Both Odin Sphere and Muramasa had inimitable visual presentations.

The team behind those games is now working on Grand Knights History, a PSP project set for release in Japan on September 1st. Sadly, no North American release has been revealed.

Grand Knights History shares many of the visual traits of previous games from Vanillaware, but the gameplay looks like a pretty significant departure, veering more into turn-based strategy. Players customize characters from three different classes and then lay them out in advantageous formations for battle.

Here's hoping Vanillaware recognizes how many North American fans it has, and reveals plans to bring the game stateside.
