Not long after the call went out for the rejuvenation of the dying strategy/RPG genre , we find ourselves looking at an old classic.

Tactics Ogre remains one of the most respected titles of the genre – perhaps second only to Final Fantasy Tactics – and now, the original version is poised to make a triumphant return in Europe. It never did release in PAL territories but Square-Enix wants to fix that now, as they're currently developing Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for our friends across the pond. The game is being rebuilt from the ground up, with all new graphics and sound, an overhauled soundtrack, a new advancement mechanic and a new "Wheel of Fortune" system.

It'll be available for the PSP via UMD and the PlayStation Network (we think), and for all you aging strat/RPG aficionados, you've gotta pick it up. Chances are, if you enjoyed this sub-genre at all in the past, you've already played Tactics Ogre …but maybe not if you live in Europe. By the way, we have a new set of screenshots as well; check 'em out if you like.

A remake for Tactics Ogre (which will be in Europe… for now), but they can't make a remake of Final Fantasy Tactics or even at least a sequel?? What's up with that, Square Enix???

They did remake Tactics. Sort of.

Anyways, this game is a for sure D1P for me! The grandfather of Final Fantasy Tactics… I can't wait to dive in…

Mehhh… it was a retouching of the original because it stayed mostly the same in terms of gameplay and graphics (sans the cutscenes and the addition of new jobs), but it had a few flaws such as the mapping controls and ultra slow spell castings… it would rock if they made a Final Fantasy Tactics similar to what Capcom did with Marvel vs. Capcom 3…

My humblest opinion, of course.
