It’s official, ghoul tactics: Reborn is coming to switch

Modernization: Square Enix shared some additional details about Tactics Ogre: Reborn in an official blog post.

The developer has detailed all the improvements made to this version of Super Famicomtitle, which is based on the PSP remake of the same name. We’ll list them here briefly with a summary, but if you want more information — including details on some of the game’s characters — head over to the post here.

First, let’s start with the series summary and this new revamp:

A brief history of ghoul tactics

The Ogre Battle series, to which Tactics Ogre belongs, began in 1993.

The first game in the series to be released, Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen, was launched that year in Japan for the Super Famicon, and arrived in 1995 for North American players. A unique combination of real-time tactics and RPG, it was a real breath of fresh air for the players, and it was a huge hit.

In 1995, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together was released in Japan for the Super Famicon. It would later be ported to PlayStation and released in North America in 1998. The game took a different approach than March of the Black Queen, featuring a new isometric perspective, turn-based battles, highly detailed and complex pixel art, and a branching storyline with multiple endings.

The game was one of those instances of lightning in a bottle – a bunch of items that resonated with players, and won them to this day.

In 2010, a team including several of the original developers of Tactics Ogre created a new version for the PlayStation Portable. It was released in Japan as Tactics Ogre: Wheel of Fortune, and a year later in the United States and Europe under its original name: Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together.

This successor featured a greatly improved story, a world filled with more colorful characters, updated gameplay with new systems and a wealth of content to satisfy even the most professional gamer. The game was a critical smash, and garnered positive reviews from the media and gamers alike.

Which brings us to 2022 and Tactics Ogre: Reborn! This new version of the game is based on the 2010 remake but features important changes that make the already great game even bigger!

What’s new in Tactics Ogre: Reborn?

  • High definition characters and wallpapers – Characters and backgrounds have been recreated in HD, keeping the detailed pixel art of the original to look good on HD screens.
  • Completely updated user interface – Menu controls have been simplified and all user interface is now HD.
  • Audio improvements – Full voice acting is included in this new version, and you will be able to choose between English and Japanese voices. Composer Hitoshi Sakimoto also re-recorded the entire soundtrack with live orchestras!

Redesigned battle system

  • Unit leveling system separately – Originally, chapters were flattened across the board. Now, each unit grows on an individual basis as per its category.
  • A complete overhaul of artificial intelligence – Enemy tactics have been modified.
  • Playability improvements – Auto-save, faster pace in battle, and new controls are just a few of the improvements that have been added.

We can’t wait to get this one, and we’ll bring you more details as we get closer to the release date. Square Enix can’t stop filling up its year-end release schedule!
