Grandia Xtreme website opens
Enix America announced today that it has launched a website for the upcoming Playstation 2 title Grandia Xtreme. The anticipated RPG is scheduled to ship in September, as the game will be the first original Grandia title for Sony's next-generation console. More information can be found at www.enix.com.
"The Grandia fan base is an avid and supportive one, and we wanted to create a place online where they could get exclusive content on their favorite game, as well as act as a 'town square' where they can congregate and share experiences," said Paul Handelman, president of Enix America. "However, because the game design of Grandia Xtreme will also appeal to casual gamers, the site serves as a resource for them, too."
In addition to providing a general overview of the game and in-depth information on the game's storyline and characters, Enix's new Grandia Xtreme site also highlights:
Combat System - acting as a brief online tutorial, this portion of the site provides background, hints and tips for the acclaimed Grandia Combat System, which returns with enhanced AI and special moves;
Magic System - the renowned Magic System which allows for the creation of new and stronger spells is overviewed in this section. Fans can familiarize themselves with the four basic types of Mana Eggs and how to use them;
Downloads - visitors can download the latest screen shots of the game, one-of-a-kind wallpaper as well as view the Grandia Xtreme trailer;
Forum - perhaps the most popular section of the site, in the Grandia Xtreme Forum fans can become a part of the worldwide Grandia community and exchange information on the game.
