Yummy SRPG: New Tactics Ogre trailer is delicious

My number one favorite thing in all of videogamedom is a portable strategy role-playing game. It really is my personal favorite gaming experience, hands down. I’ve said it a million times, but there’s nothing I like more than a portable SRPG, especially on the PSP. Knowing this, you can understand why I’m so excited about upcoming Square Enix PSP title Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. HNNNNGGGGGG!

Final Fantasy Tactics is one thing, but getting back to my geek roots with Tactics Ogre is like a dream. This remake is being developed by the same team that made both games. Director Hiroshi Minagawa joins character designer Akihiko Yoshida and game designer Yasumi Matsuno to make the prettiest version of this fine game yet. The score by Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata is like icing on the cake! The music is all Tactics-y and epic.

The new trailer will rope in any fellow SRPG fan with its lovely art, music and story setup. And then there’s the game footage. Grids, people. Freaking grids!

I can’t wait.
