Final Fantasy Tactics PSP dated

The War of the Lions in October.

Square Enix has revealed that Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions will be on European shelves in October.

The game is an updated version of the PSone original released to roaring success across Japan back in 1997. However, clumsy translation ruined its chances in America, effectively leaving its chances of heading to Europe below zero.

But for those who played Tactics it remains one of the best Final Fantasy games of all time. And thankfully this port remains entirely faithful to the original, even adding a few new touches.

There's a multiplayer mode that lets you assemble five characters then do battle with a friend; updated graphics and audio; and new playable faces in the shape of Balthier from FFXII and Cloud from FFVII.

It's this kid of reverential treatment we like to see, and saw it we did at the Square Enix Party in Japan earlier this year. Head over to our first impressions of Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for more information.
