Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together Getting Re-Make on PSP

By Brian Leahy, Jul 22, 2010 1:20pm PDT Square Enix is remaking the original Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, originally released in 1995 on the Super Famicom in Japan and then in 1996 on the Saturn and 1997 on the PlayStation. It was released in 1998 in the US on the PSX.

The new game is being developed by a team of developers responsible for the original game: Hiroshi Minagawa (Director), Akihiko Yoshida (Character Design), Yasumi Matsuno (Game Design), Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata (Composers).

"Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, is being reborn from the ground up, with reworked visuals and effects, a re-arranged soundtrack by the original composers, new character growth mechanics and a new Wheel of Fortune system that adds even more replay value to the game."

How about a features list from the press release? Sure!

    Features:
  • From the creators of FINAL FANTASY TACTICS, VAGRANT STORY and FINAL FANTASY XII. The original TACTICS OGRE development team reform to revitalize their iconic title.
  • Tactical, turn-based battles are brought to life with stunning graphics, sounds and animation.
    • New 3D maps that enhance the concept of height and improved battle engine, offering more compelling and realistic battles than ever before.

  • Near-endless customization and hundreds of abilities to choose from.
    • New characters not included in the original game

The game's release date will be revealed at a later date, but like most Square Enix releases we can probably expect it to release in Japan before it becomes available in North America or Europe.
