Bumping this for a more in-depth side by side comparison of the principle cast.

Poor Leon got the worst of the redesigns (he now looks like a kid borrowing his dad's armor), lmao at Urushihara's version of Betty and her armor piercing anatomy (and how its a far cry better than Nagi's verion), and thankfully Nagi looks to have more or less glossed over the bulk of the older male cast (Volkoff seems to have gotten the worst of it there) and Hein.

Otherwise its still the 90% pauldron size reduction, on top of reduced armor/clothing, and rearranged male BMI/female measurements.


Hopefully, Sony's recent policy enforcement policy doesn't kibosh our chances of seeing this outside of Japan.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

What a coincidence, my copy of Der Langrisser just arrived...I'm still not fond of the new designs (I'm not a fan of Nagi's character art in general. I like his mechanical designs in games like Ar Tonelico, though), but I still might get the Switch version if it ever comes out in North America, and doesn't screw up the mechanics. I like this series a lot, it just hasn't been treated well lately...

I am amused and amazed that every single female character who has been redesigned has less clothing.

Under no circumstances should Quentin Tarantino be allowed to befoul Star Trek.

I'd actually say the cheesecake level was about the same, except when you get to Lushiris which is fucking hilarious given her role.

I'd say that Jessica is showing off a whole lot more as well (though not as much as in her Tensei Tensei appearance), which is also utterly hilarious given her own role (pun intended).

Although I will argue that Imelda definitely has more added to her (probably to help hold up all that silicone Nagi injected into her character design).

I'm a Growlanser fan but have never played Warsong / Langrisser.  Too bad it seems like everyone says the 3DS installment is no good.

It looks like Betty and Cherie's designs actually got better, which is amazing.  But as expected, the rest of the female cast just got worse.
