Square Enix has just released an announcement trailer for the revered RPG game – Tactics Ogre Reborn which will be coming out on 11th November 2022 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam.

Tactics Ogre Reborn is a massively enhanced edition of the revered tactical RPG, featuring improved graphics and sound, improved battle mechanics, updated game design and much more.

About Tactics Ogre

To those who are unaware, The Ogre Battle series, to which Tactics Ogre belongs, started way back in 1993. The first game in the series to be released, Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen, launched that year in Japan for the Super Famicon, and arrived in 1995 for players in North America.

Tactics Ogre Reborn is based on the 2010 remake but features significant changes that make an already great game even greater.

New in Tactics Ogre Reborn

According to the official website, Tactics Ogre Reborn features a host of enhancements to visuals, sound, game design and more. Here’s a brief rundown of some of these improvements:

High-Definition Characters and Backgrounds

The beautifully detailed characters and backgrounds of the original Tactics Ogre have been recreated in high definition. The detailed pixel art that gives the game its unique feel has also been preserved and enhanced to look great on modern HD displays.

Fully Updated User Interface

Not only is the user interface now in high definition, it’s also been redesigned to make information easier to understand, with streamlined controls.

Sound Improvements

All dialogue in Tactics Ogre: Reborn is fully voiced, bringing new life to the complex motivations of the characters that make up the factions and shifting political alliances of this epic story. You can choose between English and Japanese voices, with the ability to switch between them in the config menu at any time.

Tactics Ogre composer Hitoshi Sakimoto rerecorded the entire soundtrack with a live orchestra. At times the melodies are ominous and filled with tension, while at other times they offer a gentle reprieve. The lingering notes and haunting echoes only found in a live performance raise the immersion in the gameplay to another level.

Battle System Redesign

Building on what worked in previous versions of Tactics Ogre, this new game incorporates new elements as part of an overall redesign of the battle system. Here’s a brief introduction to some of the new features that await.

Unit-by-Unit Level System

The class-wide level management system found in Tactics Ogre: Wheel of Fortune has been replaced by a unit-by-unit level system. Each unit advances differently depending on its class, making for an elegant system that lets players plot their way through endless combinations of equipment, skills, and magic for each unit.

Battle AI overhaul

The team has made significant changes to the artificial intelligence (AI) of your opponents in combat. The enemy’s tactics change depending on the layout of the battlefield and the state of the battle.

Playability improvements

Tactics Ogre: Reborn has seen numerous playability improvements, such as a quicker pace of battle, auto save, and a complete overhaul to the controls.
