We all love it when Japanese games get released in English, because they sometimes come with odd and amusing subtitles. Tactics Ogre is no exception with its quaint subline, “Let us Cling Together.” We’re not sure what we’re clinging onto, but let’s do it together.
The funny thing about this particular subtitle is that the Japanese version is actually called Tactics Ogre: Wheel of Fortune, which makes much more sense seeing that the game starts off with tarot cards.
On a recent trip to Tokyo, we spoke to director Hiroshi Minagawa, part of what can only be called the “dream team” working on the SRPG’s remake: the original released in 1995 for Super Famicom.
He talked to us about his worries for the European audience, major changes from the original and how the fans are not always right.
Tactics Ogre will release in Europe for PSP on February 25.
