After many months of hard work Ghostlight are finally ready to release Agarest: Generations of War to the PC gaming communityís JRPG audience. One of the first JRPGs to be ported to PC for the west, AGoW is the first instalment of Idea Factory and Compile Heartís classic console JRPG series and will hit the Steam store on 3rd October 2013. Pre-orders are available now and the pre-order page can be found here. AGoW was notable for making it through Steamís Greenlight process in just two weeks, thanks to the many JRPG fans who feel thereís a shortage of the games they love on the PC. Ghostlight also offered thanks to the team over at Laughing Jackal who have done so much more than a straightforward port, and also issued a formal shout out to the army of Beta testers who really put the game through its paces.
For the PC version of this game, Laughing Jackal have added full mouse and keyboard support, maintained full gamepad support, added Steam achievements, taken advantage of the higher resolutions that PCs can offer and made a number of other user interface changes to ensure that PC gamers receive the best gaming experience possible.
Anyone who pre-orders the game from today up until launch will receive a mighty 20% discount along with a selection of carefully selected DLC items absolutely free and available for use in-game at launch. Thatís a saving of well over $10.00 so thereís every reason to get in early.
Ghostlight have stated that, should Agarestís Steam launch prove successful, they expect to be able to bring more JRPG goodness to the PC gaming world in the near future.
