Final Fantasy Tactics, the greatest strategy-RPG ever in my humble opinion, has officially been reborn with today’s North American release of Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions exclusively for PSP. Look for it on store shelves now for $39.99.

As the first leg in the “Ivalice Alliance” series (alongside Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings and Final Fantasy Tactics A2), The War of the Lions updates the PS1 classic with all-new cinematic story sequences, full voice acting with a new English translation, 16:9 widescreen presentation, head-to-head and co-op multiplayer support, new Onion Knight and Dark Knight jobs, and new special characters like FFXII‘s Balthier and FFT A2‘s Luso. Now that’s how a remake is supposed to be. I’m dying to get my hands on this puppy, hopefully it arrives this week.

Quick heads-up for you on some sweet War of the Lions merchandise Square Enix has headed to its online shop. Next month a collection of four mini figurines — Ramza, Agrias, Delita, and Ovelia — is set to go on sale for $29.99, exclusively from the Square Enix Store. Those may be going on the ol’ Christmas list for me this year…
