Originally designed and created by developer GAME ARTS, creators of such classics as the Lunar series, GRANDIA has been a beloved fantasy franchise since the series' initial RPG title debuted on the SEGA Saturn in 1997 and PlayStation® in 1999. The game follows a young hero named Justin and his allies as they battle the sinister Garlyle Forces to uncover the secrets of an ancient civilization. GRANDIA has earned several awards, including the GameSpot Editor’s Choice, IGN Editor’s Choice Award, and the Award for Excellence from CESA AWARDS ’97, now known as the “Japan Game Awards.” Experience the legacy with GRANDIA HD Collection on Nintendo Switch™ and GRANDIA HD Remaster on Steam.
