In short: Square Enix has announced plans to release Tactics Ogre: Reborn on modern consoles and Steam later this year, marking the first time a tactical RPG will be available on PC.
Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together was originally developed and published by Quest Corporation in 1995 for the Super Famicom, the Japanese version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. A year later, the game was ported to the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation, before reaching a North American audience in 1998.
Another 15 years passed before Square Enix released a remake of the game for the PlayStation Portable. The new version retains elements of the original’s strategic RPG that focuses on class-based character building and turn-based combat. It also added several new elements, including multiplayer features and gear crafting.
The newly announced game Ogre Tactics: Rebirth, is an improved version of the 2010 remake. It will provide improved graphics and sound, as well as an updated game design with faster paced combat, automatic saves, and a complete overhaul of the user interface and controls.
All of the game’s music has been re-recorded with live performances and fully voiced cutscenes in both English and Japanese. Square Enix also updated the AI to allow enemies to tailor their tactics, ensuring the combat system never gets stale and predictable, and changed the level management system to a unit level system.
Ogre Tactics: Reborn available for pre order in standard and premium versions. It will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. Prices start at $49.99 and you can choose between a physical or digital copy depending on which platform you’re on. Expect its release on November 11, 2022.
