Langrisser: Dramatic Edition (ラングリッサー ドラマティックエディション) is a compilation that contains Der Langrisser, a remake of Langrisser II which was originally released on the Super Famicom and PC-FX, as well as an enhanced remake of the original Langrisser. As with Langrisser II and all future Langrisser games, this has never received an official western release.
Der Langrisser was heavily modified from the original Mega Drive games, and the new remake of Langrisser is based on the changes made in Der Langrisser.
Dramatic Edition Langrisser vs. Langrisser
The graphics are now taken from Der Langrisser. Characters are larger and more detailed.
The soundtrack is completely different, and voice acting has been added to various story sequences.
The dialog has been modified, making the simple plot of the previous game a bit more complex.
Anime cutscenes are spread throughout the game.
All the rebalances and battle engine modifications that were done with Der Langrisser also apply.
In comparison with the original Langrisser, permanent character death is absent.
Dramatic Edition Der Langrisser vs. Langrisser II
Most of the features in Der Langrisser are carried over from the PC-FX version:
Nearly everything from the previous comparison applies, with the exception of the permadeath (which wasn't in II to begin with) and the musical score (a few tracks are different, but most are familiar.)
The plot was re-written to be far more open-ended. The protagonist now has the option to switch his allegiance at various points in the game, each switch having drastic consequences and changes in the playable character roster that follow through to the end. Battle maps, character appearances and important story events have been revamped and shuffled to accommodate this.
