Santa Ana, CA – NIS America ships GrimGrimoire , a highly anticipated Real Time Strategy Game developed exclusively for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system. With a new, in-depth battle system and unique 2D game play, GrimGrimoire shines out as a force to be reckoned within the RTS genre.
The game play for GrimGrimoire is simple yet strategic. Retaining the classic RTS-style ore collection and army building, GrimGrimoire stands out by adopting a clever power relationship system. Each magic category you cast is either stronger or weaker against another magic category. Therefore, gamers must strategically adjust their magic casting according to the enemy they face. Simply put, building an "army of a single type of unit" strategy will not work in GrimGrimoire. For those new to RTS, GrimGrimoire offers a user friendly tutorial system that guides you through, step by step, explaining in detail how to play an RTS. Also, GrimGrimoire offers a mysterious and compelling story, along with stunning 2D art.
- Grimoire Battle System – Summon up to 16 monster types from 4 different magic categories. Each category is stronger and weaker from another, so summon monsters accordingly to your adversary.
- Side Scrolling Battle Map – Departing from the console un-friendly birds eye view of the RTS battle map, GrimGrimoire adopts a simple yet unique side view map. The 2D view allows players to quickly acknowledge the situation and navigate to battle enemies.
- 50 challenging stages – There are up to 50 challenging stages for players to enjoy. Each stage can be revisited through an intuitive bookshelf system that keeps all the stages visually in order for easy access.
- Stunning 2D Visuals – Prepare to be stunned by the animated "artwork" both in and out of the battles of GrimGrimoire.
