Square Enix remaking Tactics Ogre

"Rebuilding" for PSP.

Square Enix is remaking classic Japanese Super NES strategy game Tactics Ogre for the PSP.

According to Famitsu magazine (thanks 1UP), the PSP version is called Tactics Ogre: Wheel of Fate. It'll retain the look of the original 1995 game, but be in 3D, enabling players to move the camera around for a better view of the battle field.

While the gameplay will remain largely unchanged, the on-screen troop count is increased to 30 from 20, and there are new classes and new features for the skill system.

Some of the original team have got together to work on the game, including director Hiroshi Minagawa, designer Yasumi Matsuno, character designers Akihiro Yoshida and Tsubasa Masao, and Hitoshi Sakimoto and Iwata Masaji on music.

Matsuno is working on additions to the game's story and character elements, including new side stories.

No release date is included in the report. Nor is word of a Western release. The original SNES game was never released outside of Japan, although a PlayStation port was later released in North America.
