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.
