UPDATE: It’s August 4, 2022, and Square Enix has officially come out and revealed Tactics Ogre: Reborn. We now know it’ll launch on November 11 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, and Steam and is an enhanced version of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together.
Coming in both a physical and digital version of the game, players can also pre-order a Premium Digital Edition that adds the game’s soundtrack. Composer Hitoshi Sakimoto has also rerecorded the entire soundtrack with a live orchestra so it might be worth checking out.
Square Enix mentions they’ve redone the characters and backgrounds in high-definition, fully updated the menu controls and streamlined a lot of the UI. Additionally, Tactics Ogre: Reborn features full voice acting and you can choose between the Japanese or English dubs.
Gameplay-wise, some changes have been added including how each unit now grows individually instead of across the board. Enemy tactics have been redesigned and improved allowing for better interactions and you can now auto-save.

A listing on the PlayStation Store has revealed Tactics Ogre: Reborn. A previous trademark from Square Enix listed the title in Japan earlier this year and is now with official confirmation from one of the most reliable sources out there.
Aside from the name and one piece of key art, very little is known about the game but the artwork tied to the project is gorgeous. The next thing to consider is this is a remake (and the Reborn subtitle makes it appear as if it is one) or an entirely new project. If it is a remake, it is likely tied to Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, a title that launched in Japan and the West in the 90s with a remake in 2010 on the PlayStation PSP.
The strange thing about this leak is that it was originally leaked back in September in the massive Nvidia GeForce Now database leak that has led to several real projects including God of War on PC, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Returnal and more.
We’ll report back once we hear more. Shout out to Wario 64.
