Der Lanrisser is the enhanced remake of the original Langrisser II which improves over the original. This was first Langrisser game in the series to be released on a Nintendo platform.
While the main story line is the same, however, unlike the original Langrisser II, the player is able to make decisions that impact the ending of the game. For example, the player will be able to choose whether he should stay or side with the antagonists, the Rayguard Empire. Later, Elwin will be able to betray the Empire and support the Demon Tribe. It is also possible for Elwin to fight on neither side, and create his own fraction instead.
