Game Info
Der Langrisser is a game made by Masaya/NCS Corp. Supposedly it's the fifth installment in the Langrisser series: Renamed to Warsong in the western world. Though, the western world has only seen one game in the series: Warsong, released for the Sega Genesis, and apparantly a total flop; since it kept them from releasing future games in the series.

The game is a strategy RPG. Those of you who have played the vastly more known Heroes of Might and Magic series will know what that is. Der Langrisser is pretty similar, though it has a more consistent story. You have the characters who acts as the heroes, or commanders, and units. And you battle your opponent in scenarioes; that is, on a battlefield in turn based combat. Prior that you will have had the oppertunitu to buy an army and equipment. Depending on the outcome of the battle, you will be rewarded with experience points, money, and sometimes, if you're lucky, equipment.
