While nothing new to the core mechanics has been added, the remastered version introduces many notable changes such as improved visuals and the support for the English language.

In case you cannot wait for The Touhou Empires remastered version, the good news is that you can play Star Maiden Chronicles: Definitive Edition right now!

Star Maiden Chronicles, just like any other RTS game, follows the typical pattern where a player takes on the role of a commander leading a powerful faction at the start of the game. While the primary objective is to destroy enemy strongholds, it’s easier said than done. Being an RTS game, Star Maiden Chronicles demands strategic foresight as well as tactical acumen.

Even if you are new to RTS games, it’s likely you have heard about Grimgrimoire. This is because it is not a new game and has been in existence since 2007. This makes it a more than 15-year-old game! But don’t worry, we are not going to make you play this age-old game by Vanillaware; instead, we introduce you to the remastered version of this game with the same name and same developer that was released in 2023 on various platforms such as Nintendo Switch, PS4, and even PS5!

Unlike the previous 2 RTS games on our list above that supported online play, Grimgrimoire is more of a single-player RTS game. In that, the game follows Lillet Blan, who is invited to the Magic Academy Silver Star Tower to become a magician.

Speaking of which, Grimgrimoire features four different types of magic: Glamour, Necromancy, Sorcery, and Alchemy; where each is used to summon unique units to fight against monsters and menaces at each stage of the game.

In Grimgrimoire, battles are fought using familiars summoned by the power of grimoires, with units like fairies, golems, demons, and dragons. As such, the game features real-time simulation battles where players must strategically summon familiars to defeat the enemy while protecting their own party.
