Tactics Ogre: Reborn joins a crowded release schedule in November

Square Enix officially announced Tactics Ogre: Reborn. It will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch on November 11.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn is a turn-based strategy game that takes place in The Valerian Isles. The king, Dorgalua Oberyth, brought peace for 50 years, but after his death, a civil war breaks out between three factions. The story follows Denam Pavel, a young man who gets caught between these warring factions and has to make difficult choices during his adventure.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn will have remastered graphics and full voice acting in both English and Japanese. Additionally, it will include an orchestral recording of the original soundtrack, as well as new quality-of-life features such as an adjusted level-management system, reworked AI, and improved UI.

Arise, and revive your legacy.#TacticsOgre: Reborn releases on PlayStation 5/4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on November 11th.

Pre-order the digital version to receive the Digital Mini Soundtrack which includes 3 in-game music tracks:

Pre-orders of the $50 standard version come with a digital download code containing a selection of three songs from the new orchestral soundtrack. Those who pre-order the $60 digital premium edition will receive a download code with 10 select chiptune songs from the original 1995 Tactics Ogre game.

This game originally released on the SNES back in 1995 as Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together and received a remake on the PlayStation Portable in 2010. Tactics Ogre: Reborn appears to be based on that PSP game, smoothing out the visuals and adding the aforementioned new features.

With Tactics Ogre: Reborn launching in November, it’s joining a rather backed game release schedule. Square Enix’s own Harvestella starts the month off, and this game will release on the same day as the PC version of Valkryie Elysium. Three juggernauts also releasing that month include Sony’s God of War Ragnarök, Nintendo’s Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and Ubisoft’s long-awaited Skull and Bones.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn launches for PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch on November 11.

Our 4 biggest predictions for the June Nintendo Direct Mini
Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope

A new Nintendo Direct is upon us, but it's positioned differently than the last few major showcases that Nintendo held. The June 28 presentation is a Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase, calling back to a type of show Nintendo held frequently throughout 2020. It's shorter in length -- Nintendo says this show is 25 minutes -- and it will be focused on third-party games not developed by Nintendo.While this means that we shouldn't expect the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or something on the level of Metroid Dread to show up here, we suspect that some big announcements are still in store. It's always a lot of fun to speculate about what might show up at gaming events like this, so here are four things we want to see at this Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase this year.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope re-emerges

This Ubisoft-published Mario spinoff was announced a year ago, but we haven't seen it since. As Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is a major third-party Switch exclusive featuring a Nintendo icon, we suspect it'll be one of the main games featured during this Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase. We hope to see more gameplay, learn what's different from the first game, and get a release date for this game whenever it finally re-emerges.
2017's Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was a nice surprise as those Nintendo and Ubisoft franchises meshed surprisingly well and the game had solid XCOM-like strategy gameplay. Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope will have a bigger scope as Mario, his friends, and Rabbids new and old based on those friends explore the universe in order to save cute star-like creatures with Rabbid ears called Sparks. We've only gotten a cinematic trailer and a little bit of gameplay so far though, so there's still a lot about this game to reveal, and this showcase provides Ubisoft's best opportunity to do so. If Mario + Rabbids: Spark of Hope doesn't show up, I'd be surprised that this showcase was held at all. 
Some Nintendo-published games do actually show up
LIVE A LIVE - Nintendo Switch
While Nintendo says Partner Showcases are all about third-party games, it broke its own rules before. The October 2020 Partner Showcase featured games like Bravely Default 2 and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which were published but not developed by Nintendo. Several games are in a similar boat this year and could possibly show up. The most imminent is Live A Live, which is in a similar position to Bravely Default 2 as a JRPG developed by Square Enix. Nintendo will likely want to show it one last time before it launches in July, and this is a prime opportunity to do so.
Outside of that, there's Bayonetta 3, a highly anticipated action game from PlatinumGames. It's supposed to come out this year but still doesn't have a release date, so Nintendo could reveal one here. Even Advance Wars 1+2 Re-boot Camp is in the same boat as it's developed by WayForward and needs a release date after an indefinite delay. While Live A Live is the one I believe will be most likely to show up, seeing more of Bayonetta 3 or Advance Wars would be really nice.

Avengers: War For Wakanda gets a new trailer, but no release date
Black Panther in War for Wakanda.

The latest free update for Marvel's Avengers, War For Wakanda, got a new trailer during Square Enix's presentation at E3 this year. While the trailer didn't reveal a release date for the expansion, it did go over what enemies players can expect to go up against in Wakanda.

In War For Wakanda, players will travel to the hidden kingdom to help Black Panther protect his city, and its stores of Vibranium, from AIM and its partner-in-crime, Klaw. The Avengers are called in once these forces prove too much for Black Panther to handle on his own.
