The lights are on
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.

If this makes it to the west it will probably make me regret selling my PSP. I love the art so much it gives me goosebumps.
I am a huge fan of this music. I love violin...
Odin Sphere was a good game, very pretty. Definitely intrigued. I'm game for some Vanillaware and a good old JRPG (ok, that sounds far worse than what I mean).
This game is so Japanese... and I like it
dame psp release :( seem lke a good potenntial for 3ds :\
I'm gonna be honest, I have no idea what is going on in this trailer however, Vanillaware has never disappointed me so I'll keep an eye out.
Hopefully they make a NGP, PS3/360, or New Nintendo Console game soon, Graphics/artwork are beautiful in there games but it'd be better on HD consoles.
I just realized, my life has been too empty of JRPGs or RPGs for that matter
Man that looks like a winner and definitely deserves to be filed under "marvelous".
Looks like a more awesome Valkyrie Profile, if that's possible. Hopefully, if/when this gets a stateside release, it gets released on PSN and on physical media. I'd like to download it to the NGP/Vita, since I have no plans to get a PSP with the system on its way out.
great looking trailer
Yes, please bring stateside with Japanese voice acting. KTHANXBAI.
RPGs and strategy games really no their art!
