You know me. I love RPGs. I love portable games. I love classic games. And man, do I love me some Yasumi Matsuno. So I suppose I’m just being predictable when I say that I am incredibly excited for the comprehensive remake of Tactics Ogre that’s just been announced for PSP. Starring none other than Yasumi Matsuno and the usual accomplices (Yoshida, Minagawa, Sakimoto, Iwata, etc. etc.)! It’s very slightly less awesome than if they were making a new game altogether — say, another title in the Vagrant Story mold — but the prospect of a portable, fully 3D, and above all properly balanced rendition of Tactics Ogre is hardly anything to sneeze at. Maybe I’ll finally be able to see the outcome of the story rather than getting stuck in those multi-battle missions where your party’s health isn’t restored between fights! And by “outcome” I mean “outcomes.” I’m gonna play this sucker through every story iteration, you’d better believe it.
