Dreamcast JRPG Grandia 2 made it to PC back in 2015, but the original in Game Arts' classic series remained unavailable. That's about to change as a Steam page for Grandia HD Remaster has appeared with a release date set for September this year.

Grandia was originally released on Sega Saturn in Japan in 1997, with a PlayStation version a couple of years later. The new version will feature remastered widescreen graphics, enhanced UI, sprites, and texture art details, visual enhancement to the original cutscenes, and remappable controls. The Anniversary Edition version of Grandia 2 currently on Steam will also be upgraded to a remastered version.

A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
