Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together preparing to hug it out strategy-style on PSP

Some strategy-JRPG fans out there, those that love Fire Emblem, Disgaea or Front Mission, might not realize that one of the greatest series of the genre has been basically absent for almost a decade. While there have been a couple humble Virtual Console rereleases of the Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre series, there hasn’t been anything substantial since developer Quest was bought by Square-Enix and put to work on the Final Fantasy Tactics series. But now Squeenix has announced Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for PSP, a modern update of the series humble beginnings.

Based on the second game in the series, Let Us Cling Together boasts the isometric, turn-based, strategy-RPG battles that Quest perfected all those years ago. Aside from the obvious graphical upgrade from its SNES roots and previous PSOne rerelease, the game is getting new characters, battle system updates, and re-arranged music, all under the watchful eye of many of the original creators that now work at Square-Enix. While the hardcore Ogre fans inside us wishes this was a totally new game, as remakes outnumber original Ogre titles at this point, it’s still great to see Square-Enix actually remember they own this franchise. Here’s hoping that after Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together gets released in the nebulous future, it’s popular enough to get an original follow-up.

    The knights of Lodis on GBA was my favorite game as a kid, I just ruined a perfectly good pair of pants.

    Best news in a long time for someone that loves the Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre series .. and I most certainly do.

    @dphoenix192 It's another Queen song, just like Ogre Battle and March Of The Black Queen.

    I had FF Tactics: War of the Lionson PSP, and I enjoyed it (I loved the art direction and the beautiful graphics) but the problem was... I sucked at it. A lot. I also got Valkyria Chronicles for PS3 and I sucked at that too. I really want to be good at these games but I just dont have a mind for hardcore strategy. With this in mind, I'm curious at this game, but I reckon I'll never get past the second level if I do get it. Maybe it should include a "Total Dumbass" difficulty setting?

    Can't wait for this one. I played FF Tactics and loved it hopefully this game will be as good or better than Ff Tactics.

    I'm still trying to get through War of the Lions on PSP, and this looks really similar... since they are both from S.E. I will hold out for something else, thanks anyways though Henry.
