Given the success of Grandia HD Collection, they’re considering remastering the remaining two titles, Grandia III and Grandia Extreme. GungHo Online CEO Kazuki Morishita talked about the possibility of these titles making a return and possibly more in an interview with Noisy Pixel.
In response to them bringing Grandia III and Grandia Extreme over, Morishita said they’re “considering it.” He also had some interesting remarks in regards to a possible future entry.
There is a lot of discussions internally about this, based on the voices of users who want to see it happen. Grandia is not a title that I personally started, but I do have a lot of respect for it. If we were to put something new out, I would want it to fit in well with the original series and improve it where I feel I can, which does put a lot of pressure on me. Looking at the RPG aspects of the series, I have to work on finding a way to create something that will satisfy users.Morishita in an interview with Noisy Pixel
In the same interview he indicated it motivated them to release it in Japan and thanks to that it was trending number one trending word in the region. This shows there is certainly the demand for it and hopefully it will appear sometime in the future.
