Ogre Battle 64 is making its way to the Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow. This beloved classic marries tactical decisions with a gripping story to create a memorable RPG experience.
Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is a tactical RPG originally released for the Nintendo 64 system. Featuring a gripping storyline with multiple possible endings, and a genre-defining character class system, this strategic epic has rightly retained its place in the hearts of tactical RPG fans for over a decade. The game tells the story of Magnus Gallant, a recently graduated officer of the Palatinean Army who is assigned to the troubled southern region of his native land. There he witnesses the plight of the lower classes – the victims of a tyrannical ruling elite whose only thought is for the preservation of their own lofty status. With civil war brewing, Magnus is faced with a terrible choice: to betray his own noble origins in the name of liberty, or turn a blind eye to the evils of his rotten society.
