lang.jpg English import-friendly site NTSC-UK has put up a new feature analyzing the somewhat obscure Langrisser SRPG series in some detail.

As the author explains: "The first title, produced for the Sega Megadrive by NCS/Masaya in the early nineties, was picked up and renamed Warsong for US release by the now defunct Treco. Unfortunately it was virtually ignored by the gaming public, sealing the fate of the series in the West. In Japan, Langrisser was a massive success and went on to spawn sequels across multiple formats until the development team finally splintered in the late nineties." If you weren't educated, consider yourself so now.
