Hiroshi Minagawa, director of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, has told VG247 that there are no current plans to remake any other titles in the series.

Speaking to Lauren Wainwright at the publisher’s recent PSP showcase in Tokyo, Minagawa however admitted that if certain things fall into place, more games from the series could be rebooted.

“When we created the two previous games [Tactics Ogre and War of Lions], game design came first,” he said.

“The design always comes first. After that we thought about what chapter of the Ogre Battle Saga fits into this game design.

“So if we make some game design choices that fit the other chapters of the Ogre Battle Saga then we will definitely be looking at creating those as well. There are currently no plans on any other remakes for the Ogre Battle series.”

Minagawa also explained how the remake to Tactics Ogre came about.

“The main reason was actually all to do with timing,” he told Wainwright.

“It wasn’t my decision. It was more of an internal decision. After the Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions came out everybody was saying, ‘How about Tactics Ogre?’ I thought it was a great idea. I had just finished up on a project and put my hand up for this one.”
