Square Enix has finally announced the release of Tactics Ogre Reborn. The game was originally leaked a few weeks back when placeholder images and data were spotted on the Steam database. The developer has officially announced the remaster of the classic 1995 game and it is releasing quite soon. According to the official trailer, Tactics Ogre Reborn will launch on 11 November 2022 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC.
The team behind Tactics Ogre Reborn has clearly put a lot of love into the game. It features fully-voiced cutscenes, improved graphics and sound and new render technology that will brush up the older retro visuals for modern hardware.
If you never got around to playing Tactics Ogre Reborn, the game is a timeless classic. It was originally released back in 1995 as Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. The original game launched on Super Famicon before being ported to Sega Saturn in 1996 and PlayStation in 1997. Tactics Ogre Reborn was then remade for the PSP in 2010. That version of the game is the same one which is launching now in November. It featured a diverse cast of characters and a deep class system where players could assign roles to different characters to switch up combat encounters.
It goes without saying that Tactics Ogre Reborn is a strategy game where players move characters across a square grid battlefield, issue commands and carefully plot out their attacks.
Based on the 2010 release, the game features improved graphics and sound, as well as updated game design, bringing to life a new Tactics Ogre that remains true to its roots. Tactics Ogre veterans will experience a game that surpasses their fondest memories, while players new to Tactics Ogre will discover a game unlike any they’ve ever played. Reborn and deeper than ever, the game enables players to immerse themselves in the world and intrigue of Tactics Ogre like never before.
Square Enix claims that pre-orders are now open for the game ahead of the launch in November. Check out the official trailer down below and find out more on the official site here.
