Read details on the game below:

Tactics Ogre, crown jewel of the tactical role-playing genre, is reborn!

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.

Key Features:

  • A tactical role-playing game depicting the struggle for control of the Valerian Isles.
  • Your choices affect how the story unfolds, and even how it ends, with a game system that allows for multiple paths through the game and multiple endings. The story takes place through the eyes of a young man named Denam. The decisions he makes will alter the fate of those around him, and shift the course of Valeria’s history.
  • Fight pitched tactical battles on three-dimensional battlefields. The completely revamped AI enables enemies to adapt their tactics to the situation, providing a battle system that always keeps you thinking and never grows old.
  • The class-wide level management system used in Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (2010) has changed to a unit-by-unit level system. Theorycraft your way through endless combinations of classes, equipment, skills, and magic.
  • Enjoy numerous playability improvements, such as a quicker pace of battle, auto save, and a complete overhaul to the controls and UI to make it easier to get into the game than ever.
  • The unparalleled details of the characters and backgrounds from the original Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (1995) have been painstakingly recreated in high definition.
  • The cutscenes are fully voiced in English and Japanese, and all of the music has been rerecorded with live performances! The voices bring new life to the complex motivations of the characters that make up the factions and shifting political alliances of this epic story.
  • When you advance far enough in the game you’ll unlock the World Tarot, enabling you to travel back in the story with the power of your forces intact; an incredibly useful feature in a game where your choices have such a huge impact on how the story unfolds. If you wonder what a different choice would have led to, now you can find out!
  • Traveling back isn’t limited to the story; the Chariot Tarot lets you rewind up to a certain number of moves during battle. In a game of tactical battles where a single mistake can mean the difference between victory and defeat, you can play without worrying that you’ll back yourself into a corner.
  • Enjoy a wealth of endgame content such as the 100-level Palace of the Dead.

This is probably one of the best news for me this year.

This game is probably the best tactics game out there and it looks like they changed a few things; in the original (PSP) version you were "leveling" classes and in this version, it is now per character; I like that a lot.
This is WAY better than Final Fantasy Tactics (maybe the DS A2 one is on par...) but if you like Tactics games and you thought Final Fantasy Tactics is good, try this one.

My wish with the Play Station Plus was to be able to play the PSP Ogre game remotely but this 10 times better. Now the question is... Switch or PS5 version... Hum... Being able to play this gem on the go is really nice.

It was awesome to finally see this confirmed. I actually found out it was getting a Multiplatform release from Yasumi Matsuno's Facebook page (he added me as a friend.)
