Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together Review

Even though the PlayStation Portable has become the best place to find many portable strategy titles, many of the releases have been remakes or ports of older titles with a new layer.

In the case of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, the title was brought to the PSP with the original team going back into the guts of the title and revamping it for the portable console, presenting one of the best strategy title back into the hands of fans who might of not had the chance to experience the title.

Along with the announced release date, Square Enix has also revealed a pre-order bonus for those who pre-order for North American residents with GameStop and Amazon.

The item is a tarot card deck by Akihiko Yoshida as shown above.

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is an update from the original title featuring changes to the battle system, character development, and combat. They say to make it more fun, but I feel it’s more to cater to the current generation of video game fans.

Since the title also features multiple endings, the title introduces the Chariot Tarot and World Tarot systems which also rewinding of key battles and the return to plot points to change fates.

Amazingly still, the original team reconvened to work on the title – Hiroshi Minagawa (Director), Akihiko Yoshida (Character Designer), Yasumi Matsuno (Game Designer), Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata (Composers).

Looks like this update is going to be something more special that others with the inclusion of the original team.
