Gung Ho Online Entertainment announced today that Grandia II HD Edition, a remaster of the 15-year-old Dreamcast RPG, is coming to PC via Steam and on August 24. To celebrate the game's 15th anniversary this month, Gung Ho has also changed the title to Grandia II Anniversary Edition.

Gung Ho CEO Kazuki Morishita said the name change was meant "to properly celebrate Grandia II's 15th anniversary." The game was chosen to be remastered due to feedback from a previous fan survey.

Grandia II Anniversary Edition will have a limited time sale price of $14.99 on both Steam and, discounted from the regular $19.99. For more on the game, take a look at our preview.


Our Take
It's always great to see a company make moves to preserve older games, especially ones that are tough to revisit outside of emulation. Grandia II is a classic that I will enjoy jumping into again, if anything just to see how the title has held up after all these years.
