Okay, there is a chance you played it - but I would guess it's unlikely. This gem of a game came out for the Sega Genesis (and was called Langrisser overseas). I am not sure what inspired me to pick it up at the time. I had heard nothing about this game in any of the magazines I read, none of my friends had played it, but something about it caught my eye when I was mulling what game to purchase next.
Re;Birth2 greatly improves upon the original second game in the Hyperdimension series
An excellent mix of visual novel and RPG mechanics
Solid combat helps to overcome a weak presentation in this strategy RPG title
