Untipped: Tactics Ogre Resurrected – Interspersed


Tactics Ogre: Reborn will be the latest game in the acclaimed strategy RPG series Tactics Ogre. This series hasn’t seen the light of day since 2011 and the PSP title Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together. Appropriate enough is Reborn a remake of this particular game (which in turn is a remake of the original for Super Nintendo, Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn).

Tactics Ogre: Reborn follows in the footsteps of its original releases and is an isometric (oblique-top view) strategy role-playing game. The closest parallel can clearly be drawn Final Fantasy Tactics-games and of course the uncrowned king of the genre Fire Emblem. The layout is turn-based, the attacks vary between magic spells and cold, hard steel, and your troops need to be organized in detail.

Compared to its predecessors, this remake should not only get a graphical boost, but also a redesigned interface, new orchestral soundtrack, new AI and voice acting in both English and Japanese (at least in cutscenes).

In the trailer above named Tactics Ogre: Reborn as the seventh chapter of the saga. The question is whether they then count previous remakes as their own input or not; I can do it myself six predecessors (which includes a “gaiden” [sidoberättelse]).

Tactics Ogre: Reborn will be released on PlayStation 4–5, Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam) on November 11th of this year. The digital release gets two editions, with the Premium including a digital mini-soundtrack featuring the original release’s music. The game is also being released physically, but availability and region have not been announced yet, other than that a collector’s edition with tarot cards has been promised for Japan.
