U.S. Grandia Ad
Grandia finally made it to the U.S. and while it has been greeted with mixed feelings due to the translation and voices, Sony seems to be backing their latest localization task. From placing a substantial demo in OPM's November CD to plastering Justin's artwork in promotional material sent to gamers, this game is getting quite a bit of attention!
Now, the holiday season is upon us and Sony would like nothing more than for you to have Grandia on your Christmas list. Their latest attempt to get everyone's attention is in the form of a two-page magazine ad. Not much is special about it, except that it has all of the large print backwards on the page. It's supposed to signify the mysterious nature of Grandia and I must give them credit for trying something creative. Anyway, you can find the ad here.
If you are one of those people who can't read something printed backwards, the text reads, "It's a mystery, wrapped in a riddle, tucked inside an enigma, neatly stacked inside a puzzle, located somewhere inside a conundrum."
