A New SRPG in the Horizon- Brigandine LoR

Recommended Posts

So I came across this while trying to keep up with videogame-related news- Brigandine: Legend of Runeseria. Since I haven't seen a post about this yet (I apologize if there was- I've seen a lot of mention of it though!). Brigandine is another old SRPG like FE and Langrisser, but seems to have been almost forgotten. A sequel, Legend of Runeseria has been announced since September (why am I hearing about this now?).

So let's get to the game. There's strife in the continent of Runeseria, and you will help guide it to unification. There's 6 factions to choose from, each with their own leader, set of characters, ideals, and histories. Each force seems to have around 14 unique characters you can choose from? Think that's a low number? Well this is where it differentiates itself from other SRPGs- you can create and control monsters to aid you in battle. Monsters can do a variety of things as well, such as fly and swim. The only SRPG that I've seen that in is Disgaea, but "monster" units in that game functioned very similarly to normal "demon" units. (there's one big difference in what they can do, but that's for a Disgaea thread. Disgaea 6 when?) This game is also fought on a hexagonal grid, like Berwick Saga.

What really caught my eye was the art style. It reminds me of the Baten Kaitos games, a series I grew up with. It seems like they're trying to evoke a more high fantasy feel with the design of their characters and world building. I also like how the graphics also go with the art style.

I'm not sure if I would say I'm hyped just yet, but I am very interested. If you're a fan of this series, please feel free to DM more info.

I'm not the most knowledgeable about this series, so I can't do the explanation justice. Check out the website here or watch the trailer below

I faintly remember playing The Legend of Forsena back on the Playstation. I've no recall of ever finishing the game, but this is a supposed sequel to it. Here's to hoping this installment in the series holds my interest.

This reminds me of the older ogre games probably most famous for the tactics ogre games. Mostly because of the monsters since it was more of a battalion focused game.

Oh looks like this thread has a snazzy little star next to it. Sweet.

I've been doing some research on this series and I can see why one doesn't finish it- it has at least 5 different campaigns? There's a lot going on. This one has 6, but maybe the writing and the characters can entice you to finish at least one or two of the campaigns.

This series is very comparable to Tactics Ogre! Tactics Ogre fans may be interested in this game. Can't say for certain though.
