Grandia II, the highly regarded RPG featuring one of the most critically acclaimed combat engines in history, is now shipping for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system.


UBI SOFT SHIPS ITS EPIC RPG, GRANDIA™ II A groundbreaking battle system, beautiful 3D landscapes and over 1,000 NPCs await in the next generation of the Grandia RPG series!

Developed by well-known Japanese developers Game Arts and Rocket Studios, Grandia II delivers an entire 3D world with stunning battles, vast cityscapes and treacherous dungeons. Grandia II’s spell effects overlay MPEG video with real-time action, creating extraordinary spell sequences unlike any before seen. The unique Battle System delivers a seamless combination of real-time and turn-based combat, with fast action requiring tactics and skill as a result.

Ryudo has been hired to protect a beautiful young priestess destined to take part in a ceremony that could halt the imminent rebirth of Valmar, the God of Darkness. Thrust without warning into this battle between the forces of good and evil, Ryudo must follow his destiny and become the savior of the realm.

Grandia II gives gamers what they want most – a traditional hardcore RPG from some of the best storytellers in the industry. An additional bonus comes with the game's inclusion in Ubi Soft's Great RPG Giveaway, along with the recently released PlayStation 2 RPGs Jade Cocoon™ 2 and The Legend of Alon D'ar™. When gamers buy any two of these great games, they receive the third game completely FREE! For those without a PlayStation 2, the equally high-quality PC version of Grandia II will ship in February.
