Atlus Bringing "Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time" Stateside

Atlus confirms PSP update of PlayStation 2 tactical RPG

Initially outed in an EB Games Canada listing, Atlus USA has confirmed via newsletter that they will be bringing the PSP tactical RPG, Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, to North America.

 

This latest PSP addition to the Growlanser series is an updated version of Growlanser IV: Wayfarer of Time, which was originally released on PlayStation 2. Wayfarer has over 40 different endings, adds new events, new story scenes, and lets players go on vacation with party members. Atlus also added some info about the voice track:

 

...While the PSP system version's many anime cutscenes would be fully voiced, the remainder of the game would not include Japanese or English voice work.  The Japanese track could not be included due to licensing restrictions, while the sheer scope of the game's script -- expanded and fleshed out over and above the original PlayStation®2 system release and already one of the largest localization projects in the publisher's two decade history -- was prohibitive to the prospects of a new English voice track.

 

Atlus has Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time listed for "summer 2012," and the previously mentioned leaks have it listed for a July 24 release. Check out some screens below:
