Well, that’s just grand.

Publisher GungHo Entertainment revealed that the Japanese role-playing game Grandia II is getting the remastered treatment on Valve’s digital store for PC, Steam. Grandia II originally came out for the Sega Dreamcast back in 2000.

“With the rise of digital downloads, it is especially important that classic games continue to remain available to play in some form,” said Jun Iwasaki, the president of GungHo Online Entertainment America, in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “Grandia II was chosen for a PC re-release because it represents both a hallmark of the Grandia series and an example of how great JRPGs can be.”

Grandia II also had releases on PlayStation 2 in 2001 and PC in 2002, however fans consider the Dreamcast version the best since it performed the smoothest. GungHo will base the optimized version on the Dreamcast version and will include keyboard and controller support. It’ll also have its own Steam achievements and trading cards.
