Everyone Drink Their Ovaltine!

Strategy RPG fans are a very unique group of individuals… We have those that love the Final Fantasy tic-tactics (Not the “A” series, what a garbage sequel),  we have those who loved Ogre Battle, and then we have those who loved the Fire Emblem series. Question is, what did we all like from those franchises? I personally loved Final Fantasy Tactics for being the first SRPG to give me a tragic story and countless characters to choose from. But I also loved Ogre Battle for its huge, up-close battles and its epic storytelling. However, that’s just me. What did you guys like about those titles, or any SRPG title for that matter?

While you ponder that, let’s take some of those elements I spoke of above, and mash them together—create a SRPG meatball of sorts. Now let’s add the marinara sauce—you know, kind of like graphics that give it that final touch. The end result? A wonderful, story-driven game that brings back the old days of SRPGs. It sorta gives you a taste of something familiar, like something your mom cooks at home, and that’s what we at Aksys Games have been cooking. We call it Hero’s Saga Laevatein Tactics, or Laevatein Tactics for short, and today it comes out on the Nintendo DS. I ask fans of this genre to give it a gander. Let us know how we did…tell us, did we hit the spot?

The Story So Far…

When a strange girl hands Ernesto, the young prince of Valencia, a mysterious sword and tells him to save his friends, he thinks nothing of using the magical blade to fight off an undead attack. Little does he know that such a small choice will spark a war that will rage across the continent of Yulamecca and beyond…

    Wheee can’t wait to play. And I definitely agree with you about FFTA. It isn’t a bad game, but man is it a bad SRPG. I got way more fun out of Hoshigami Remix which didn’t get nearly as much critic love.
