TACTICS OGRE: Let Us Cling Together

London (22 July 2010)– Square Enix Limited, the publisher of SQUARE ENIX ® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces the forthcoming release of TACTICS OGRE TM : Let Us Cling Together TM , a PSP ® (PlayStation Portable) reinvention of the Strategy RPG. The timing of the release will be announced at a future date.

TACTICS OGRE is one of the most beloved Strategy RPG titles of all time, with the game being the only one to place in the Japanese gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu’s“Top 20 games voted by readers” for 14 years running. Sadly, the original version of the game was never officially published in Europe, however, that is about to be rectified in spectacular fashion.

Having also worked on such hit titles as FINAL FANTASY TACTICS ® , VAGRANT STORY TM and FINAL FANTASY ® XII, key members of the original TACTICS OGRE development team have reformed to deliver the ultimate version of this definitive Strategy RPG experience. Hiroshi Minagawa (Director), Akihiko Yoshida (Character Design), Yasumi Matsuno (Game Design), Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata (Composers) are pleased to return to TACTICS OGRE and to revitalise their masterpiece for a new format and era– created with the simple idea–“how TACTICS OGRE would be if it was developed and played now.”

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.

Larry Sparks, Vice President Brands PAL Region of Square Enix Limited comments,“It gives us great delight to revisit this legendary title, I hope that TACTICS OGRE: Let Us Cling Together pleases the original fans with a host of improvements and attracts a new audience eager to find out why TACTICS OGRE remains such a beloved title.”
