Kazuhiro here. Glad to bring Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia back to PlayStation tomorrow – this time on PS4! (bonus: it’s playable on PS5). We’ve been celebrating the launch for a long time with a free dynamic PS4 theme for all purchases and the “Titans and the Iron Front” Day 1 patch. We have a new trailer to show all the updates and new content, but first, I thought I’d share how my Brigandine dream came true, tell you about the new Brigandine, and give you some tips for help you conquer nations and bring peace. at Runersia.
Bringing a PlayStation Classic SRPG back to life for PlayStation 4
I happened to join Happinet when an affiliate, E3 Staff, released Brigandine: The Legend of Forsena 22 years ago and became a huge fan of the game. I had hoped to someday work with the staff at the E3 but the team dissolved and with them made my dream of working on a Brigandine come true
Of course, we considered doing a remake, but with the original creators unavailable, we decided to make a new game with a new team that would still have the basic mechanics that made Brigandine unique, but upgrade things that would make the experience more enjoyable. From there, I decided to put together a team that really understood what we wanted to accomplish with Runersia. and had the experience to bring the vision to life. I’m proud to say that the Matrix team which included Kenji Terada on screenplay, Raita Kazama on art and character design, and music from Tenpei Sato achieved this goal.
Unify the continent of Runersia your way
There are hundreds of hours of gameplay in Runersia – a single storyline can take over 30 hours. Initially, you choose one of six nations to rule, with the aim of conquering Runersia.
