    What? Back in the day when I was a kid I couldn't understand English very good but (careful story spoiler!)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    That was really unexpected and even without replay value I played through the game 4x already. There aren't many games I played that often. This was one of it.

    ooh boy I love grandia sooo much. Now if we could just get some legend of dragooooooooon :3
    II is my favorite. the battle system of grandia is so much better than most games.

    edit: I really enjoyed how most dungeons were only 3 floors it made the game feel really fast along with the battle system. And following the storyline.

    I will autoforget the spoiler, because I think it probably applies to Grandia I, not to Grandia II (that my comment was about).
    I owned Grandia I on the PS1 three thousands years ago, but I never got to play it really (and who knows where it is anymore).

    Hmmm... I will probably end getting this collection just for the first Grandia perhaps, and to remember the second one because really I barely remember anything regarding the plot.

    is there any information about price? I mean the game isn't even listed as coming soon on the eshop, almost as if they're trying not to promote it. :-/

    Probably one of the lamest excuses why a remaster won't appear on PS4

    Does anyone care whether it's 4K or not??

    Legend of Dragoon was developed and published by Sony, so the only place you'd see it is Playstation.

    However, you can play it on Switch with Retroarch PCSX Rearmed core.

    Oh good, maybe the remaining audio cut off issues will be fixed, as many sound effects used the ADX codec.

    i want all Star ocean PS@ games on switch.....i remember my ps2 had a IC Memory chip defect and could not load some cut scenes and never finished the last one, so i never got around playing grandia 3, i do have it on pc with PCSX2.

    Grandia extreme was my favorite because of the incredible battle system and music, shit story and dungeon though but was a blast to play nonestop

    wonder why it says "available now," when the eshop on the system says "available sometime around 08/16."
