Tactics Ogre: Reborn Details Tarot Cards, Choices, Elements & More; New Screenshots & Renders

Square Enix Blog has published a new post discussing the gameplay systems of the upcoming Tactics Ogre: Reborn. Tarot Cards are one of the central determining elements of the experience, as they shape the main character, Denam. His beginning stats will alter depending on the answered questions presented by the Tarot Cards.

Further regarding character creation is the Element system, of which there are eight types: fire, water, wind, earth, darkness, light, lightning, and ice. Players must select an “associated god in the myth of Xytegenia” to embrace a specific Element. Affinities with the Elements also play a role, with weaknesses and resistances.

Each of the eight goddesses is viewable below alongside their correlative profiles.


Gameplay is tile-based, with units who level up and specialize in particular stats, such as Wizards favoring Intellect and Berserkers embracing Strength. Additionally, combat is not turn-based, instead having units perform based on the RT (Recovery Time) system. As a result, factors such as agility determine overall turn speed. Moreover, the game has various choices that completely change the course of the narrative, offering immense replayablity.

Tactics Ogre is a part of the Ogre Battle series that began in 1993 with Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen. However, many fans also remember the second entry, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, which introduced beloved tactical RPG systems. That entry was also ported to PSP in 2010, but the Ogre Battle series has been pretty quiet since then.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn features updated game design, fully-voiced cutscenes, improved graphics, and sound. Players can immerse themselves in the world and intrigue of Tactics Ogre through this updated adventure.

Tactics Ogre: Reborn is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on November 11, 2022.
