Designer Yasumi Matsuno, the critically acclaimed developer famous for Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII, has started working with Level-5.

According to Andriasang Matsuno made the move because he felt a "common vision" with Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino.

The article is short on details about Matsuno’s first project for the company, but he confirmed that it’s not a continuation of his previous projects like Tactics Ogre, and that he hopes it will appeal to younger players.

Hanging on in there.

It's a true testament to the game that 15 years after release, the original Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is still rated as one of the best titles in its genre. In fact it was such a triumph it's featured in Famitsu's Top 20 Games list for 14 years running.

The premise is simple – you are a humble boy on a quest to bring freedom to the nation of Valeria. To achieve this, you control a group of up to 12 warriors and wage battles on 3D isometric playing fields.

Once you've individually manoeuvred your fighters into place you can attack, defend, cast spells or healing buffs... Whatever your soldier is trained to do. It's these intelligent turn-based battles, combined with razor-sharp AI and an emotive plotline, which have helped the game to stand the test of time.

A popular, but stale genre was served an shining example ten years ago. Alas it was ignored and instead moved in a most bafflingly opposite direction.

50% per cent off Vagrant Story PSN.

PlayStation Portable strategy RPG Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together includes a copy of the game, a 44-page hardback artbook The World of Tactics Ogre, an exclusive mini soundtrack CD and a 50 per cent off PSN voucher for cult Square JRPG Vagrant Story.

Vagrant Story is considered by some to be one of the greatest JRPGs of all time. The PlayStation game failed to match the commercial success of other JRPGs of the time, including the all-conquering Final Fantasy VII, but its unique battle system and beautiful visuals helped secure a loyal fanbase, and Square Enix is often asked about the possibility of a sequel.

Tactics Ogre is the PSP remake of the classic SNES strategy RPG – never before released in Europe. It has reworked visuals and a re-arranged soundtrack by the original composers.
