    Grandia II is fantastic, but I never did get around to playing the first one. I hear it's good too.

    They straight up used the old unofficial Undub. With all the bugs and glitches that comes with it.

    Also to clear up any confusion, those who already own Grandia II Anniversary Edition on PC will not have to re-purchase Grandia II HD Remaster.

    Finally, I asked Mr. Minagawa if a Grandia III HD Remaster could be a future possibility. "I cannot say," he replied. "The history with Grandia III is so complicated - who distributed it, who published it, who actually has the rights. If you really want to ask that question, you'd have to go ask Game Arts first." In case you are unaware, Game Arts is the original developer of the Grandia series, as well as Lunar.
