Classic turn-based strategy title Tactics Ogre is back. From Square Enix, the new edition of the game will star new graphics, gameplay, and more.
Still such a weird name
Remember Tactics Ogre? If you’re old enough to remember the glory days of 16bit gaming, then you probably do, as the strategy title was a pretty big hit on the SNES. It’s been a long time coming, but a re-release of the title is indeed on the way and set to be a little more than just a re-issuance.
The new edition will offer improvements for just about everything, including graphics, sound (including fully voice acted cutscenes), and “updated battle systems”.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn is set in The Valerian Isles, jewels of the Obero Sea. Following many years of conflict, there finally rose a man to put an end to this: Dorgalua Oberyth. Known as the “Dynast-King,” he brought peace and prosperity to Valeria for half a century. After his death, a civil war erupts and throws the isles of Valeria into a bloody struggle for power between three warring factions. In Tactics Ogre: Reborn, players follow the story of a young man, Denam Pavel, caught in the center of the bloodshed. Although he seeks a path of freedom and justice, players will soon discover that even the noblest of goals requires impossibly difficult decisions to be made.Square Enix press release
