Tactics Ogre: Reborn is on the way, bringing retro tactical battling alongside revamped visuals and systems. With various different mechanics to get your head around, and the possibility of tweaks in this remaster of a 12-year-old remake of a 27-year-old tactical RPG, there’s just a whole lot of nonsense to unpack.
So, that’s why I’m here to tell you about Tactics Ogre: Reborn crafting, to make at least one aspect a little simpler. Introduced in the PSP remake of the game, it can split opinions just like the new art style. Assumedly, as this new version is a remaster of the PSP version, the crafting will be intact in its original form.
Anyway, head down below for some of that or stick around for this subsequent little treat… Fun fact! Tactics Ogre was made by Artdink, which has been making games since 1988. They also developed Triangle Strategy. How cool is that? (They also developed a load of Macross games, which is pretty cool if you’re into that type of thing). Sorry, a bit of a tangent. Have a peek at our Tactics Ogre: Reborn characters and Tactics Ogre: Reborn classes for more.
Tactics Ogre: Reborn crafting
Artdink introduced Tactics Ogre: Reborn crafting in the 2010 remake of the 1995 tactical RPG classic. It lets you combine different ingredients to make weapons, equipment, and consumables. You can craft wherever there’s a store.
You collect recipes by playing the game, doing sidequests, or purchasing them, and they’re required to make stuff in the first place. Crafting doesn’t always go smoothly, however, as there’s only a chance of success. If it fails, the ingredients are still used up. There’s also a chance that the crafting can produce two of the desired item, which is fun.
Now, I could write up a detailed guide for everything to do with crafting based on the 2010 remake, but I’m not going to for two reasons. Firstly, who knows if things will change in the remaster? Secondly, a user called Maltherion did an unknowably detailed crafting guide over on GameFAQs, one which I could only do better if I was as clever as them and owned a PSP. Neither of these things is the case.
So, yes, check out that GameFAQs guide for all the in-depth details, but as soon as the game is out, we’ll dive deep into Tactics Ogre: Reborn’s crafting to discover if there have been any changes and let you know. To find out when that is, check out our Tactics Ogre: Reborn release date guide.
