Re-imagining of Tactics Ogre coming to PSP

by: Ben Berry -
When Square Enix does something, they usually do it pretty well. Especially if it's something they've already done. That's why it's no surprise that the original development team will be involved with the development of Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together for PSP. It sounds like a game I'm going to want to buy for "Rach's" PSP. The quotation marks are because she never uses it, and it mostly just sits around between plane trips where I use it.

On top of the press release, they've also released the features of the game:

Story:
Long ago,
Power was everything.
It was a time called Xytegenia,
where metal, and evil that was enshrouded in darkness was in control.
 
Features:
  • From the creators of FINAL FANTASY TACTICS, VAGRANT STORY and FINAL FANTASY XII. The original TACTICS OGRE development team reform to revitalize their iconic title.
