Record of Grancrest War: Quartet Conflict Announced for the West by Bandai Namco
Bandai Namco announced the western release of a brand new Record of Grancrest War game, but it's the mobile one.
Today Bandai Namco announced the western release of Record of Grancrest War: Quartet Conflict.
The game is a 3D hack-and-slash fantasy role-playing-game for iOS and Android based on the Record of Grancrest War anime written by Record of Lodoss War author Ryo Mizuno.
Below you can read an official description.
“Record of Grancrest War: Quartet Conflict invites players to turn the tides of war and unite a divided continent via 3D, hack-and-slash combat. Each party is made up of four rotating characters from three distinct classes, each offering its own unique skills in battle: Lords, who power up their allies and summon reinforcements, Mages, who use devastating magic to quickly dispatch enemy hoards, and Artists, who can topple strong opponents with a combination of power and skill. Players can strategically switch between party members and utilize their strengths in harmony to charge their Quartet Gauge, then activate Quartet Mode to bring all four fighters into the fray simultaneously to overwhelm their foes!
In addition to giving players the opportunity to relive their favorite moments from the anime alongside characters such as Theo, Irvin, Siluca, and Aishela, Record of Grancrest War: Quartet Conflict introduces both original storylines and new characters into the Grancrest universe. Players can also participate in the ongoing Faction War, teaming up with other players to lend their might to the Fantasia Union or Factory Alliance and lay siege to each other’s holdings.”
If you’re wondering, this game is unrelated with the Record of Grancrest War PS4 title that Bandai Namco released in Japan in June. At the moment there is no word from the publisher on whether that will ever be released in the west.
At the very least, the publication of the mobile game seems to indicate that there aren’t specific licensing issues that would stop a western release of the PS4 title, but on whether it’ll ever come or not, your guess is exactly as good as mine.
The game will launch for iOS and Android in the fall of 2018. Below you can check out a trailer and the key artwork.
