Quest Team Reunites For Tactics Ogre PSP Remake

The original Super Famicom version of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together came out nearly 15 years ago, and since then key members of the game’s developer, Quest, defected to Square Enix, who later bought the studio outright any way. Now, after all these years, the former leaders of Quest are reuniting under the Square Enix banner to create a PSP remake of their beloved strategy-RPG.

Original Quest creators Hiroshi Minagawa (Director), Akihiko Yoshida (Character Design), Yasumi Matsuno (Game Design), Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata (Composers), who have worked on Square Enix titles like Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII since their Tactics Ogre/Ogre Battle days, are back together again to resurrect Tactics Ogre under the design philosophy of how the game “would be if it was developed and played now.”

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for PSP will tell the same story as the original masterpiece and have the same great tactical gameplay, but the experience as a whole will be improved upon with beautifully remastered graphics, 3D maps, a rearranged soundtrack with 15 new compositions, new characters, a new Battle Skill ability, new character growth mechanics and something called a Wheel of Fortune system that will somehow extend replay value.

Release timing is still to be determined, but here are the first screenshots to tide you over until more info is announced.
