Do you assume Sq. Enix has received a hankering for technique RPGs currently? What with Triangle Technique being a roaring success, and the recently-announced The DioField Chronicle, the corporate appear to be storming the fort on the style.
Look, should you’re into technique RPGs, it is doubtless that – exterior of the Fireplace Emblem collection – that you just love Ultimate Fantasy Ways. And sure, we too need to see that on the Swap. However should you’re a fan of Yasami Matsuno, then you definately’ve in all probability heard of and performed no less than one sport within the Ogre Battle collection, so we’d have one thing for you continue to.
With a number of entries on Nintendo techniques, beginning with Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen on the SNES in 1993, and adopted up by maybe essentially the most well-known entry within the collection – Ways Ogre: Let Us Cling Collectively – simply two years later, the collection hasn’t seen a brand new entry since 2001. And we have solely had a remake of Let Us Cling Collectively on the PSP again in 2010 since then.
However there is a spark of hope right here, perhaps. On thirty first March, Sq. Enix (who personal the rights to the Ogre Battle collection) filed a trademark for Ways Ogre: Reborn. This was noticed at present by Renka_schedule on Twitter:
What may this imply? There is no title within the collection with this identify, and this has by no means been trademarked earlier than. Is a set incoming? Or is a port of one of many video games on the best way? Ogre Battle 64: Particular person of Lordly Caliber would match properly on the Swap On-line Growth Move, and Ways Ogre: The Knight of Lodis seems to be a bit of drained after being the final new launch again on GBA. We’re attempting to remain calm, we promise.
In fact, this might imply completely nothing, however with a model new identify being filed away, we expect one thing is occurring. SRPGs lovers adore these Yasami Matsuno-directed titles for his or her tactical fight, spectacular visuals, class system, and deeply political tales, so it might be nice to see them get a wider launch.
Have you ever performed any of the Ogre Battle video games? Which of them would you prefer to see get a rerelease? Tell us within the feedback.
