GungHo Online Entertainment will be releasing the Grandia HD Collection on the Nintendo Switch next week, bringing two classic Sega Saturn-era JRPGs to a modern platform. Both titles, Grandia I and II, will feature updated graphics, a revised UI, both Japanese and English audio, and brand-new French and German translations. The Nintendo Switch version will release on August 16th, while the Steam version will follow at a later date. The PC port of the Grandia HD Collection will see the currently-released Grandia II: Anniversary Edition renamed to Grandia II: HD, with both games having Steam cards, widescreen support, keyboard and mouse mapping, and all the aforementioned improvements that the Switch version will have as well.

I wonder how much better is this PC version of Grandia II.
Perhaps memories are embellished, but I remember playing it around two decades ago on my then potato PC (probably comparable to an underclocked RPi1) and it looked quite well already. How much can it improve? I guess I will have to look for some youtube video or something. (only played the 2002 release)

If you never played those games before, do yourself a favor : play them !
I've never finished second one (but got pretty far) but it was really good. As for the first one, well it's maybe one of my favorite ps1 game ! An rpg about an Aventure with a great A !

Day one for sure !
Also as a French person, it's quite pleasing to see it in there when second one never got a translation to that langage before. And also nice to see German language getting that treatment too !
