Independent game developer/publisher Nicalis will be bringing a classic 16-bit style JRPG to the Nintendo 3DS and PC (including Mac and Linux).
Grinsia, a 16-bit style from Kemco, follows a family of three treasure hunters who go out in search of some ancient ruins said to be full of untold riches. Their adventure begins with little incident, but little do they know that they'll be caught up in a more sinister plot as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
"We're excited to be partnering with Nicalis on publishing, Grinsia, one of our JRPGs for the Nintendo 3DS and PC," said Masaomi Kurokawa, Deputy General Manager, Kemco Games.
The game is a complete re-localization of the original and will feature a new SNES-like soundtrack, dual-screen support on the 3DS, enhanced controls, and more.
"We're seeing a fantastic resurgence in the genre, and hope that Grinsia is the first of many games that we can bring to new audiences," said Victor Rodriguez, CEO and Executive Producer, Nicalis.
