Growlanser is a very long-running series of tactical RPG games perhaps best known for the characters designs by Satoshi Urushihara (You’re wearing PVC! You’re wearing PVC! Everyone’s wearing PVC!), and Growlanser IV, called the Wayfarer of Time, is generally considered to be the best entry in the franchise. Originally released on the PS2 in 2003, it was rereleased on the PSP in 2011 and came West the following year. Having played both it and other games in the series, I really agree with the praise it receives.

It also deserves praise for having an opening movie that doesn’t spoil the shit out of the game (I’m looking at you, Heritage of War). Well worth picking up should you come across it.
