The latest issue of Japanese publication Famitsu has revealed the first two entries in the tactical role-playing series Langrisser will be receiving Nintendo Switch remakes at some point in the near future. Langrisser I & II are being recreated from scratch, with new graphics and the intention to make the games more accessible to first-time players.

The games are being fully remade, from graphics to systems, and optimized to be easier to play for newcomers. Character designs are completely new, the scenario is fully voiced, and the UI is being optimized. Battles also have cut-ins, and new elements not included in the original games will be added.

The remakes are expected to be officially announced on 29th August, with the development currently at the halfway mark. This latest reveal aligns with the news at the start of this month about the Langrisser website teasing a new announcement. 

The Langrisser series started out on the Sega Mega Drive in 1991 and was developed by Masaya Games. Several titles from the series have been released over the years with the most recent one for Nintendo players being the 2015 3DS game, Langrisser Re:Incarnation Tensei.
