Ogre Tactic: Reborn will be sold digitally and physically overseas. However, it looks like Japanese buyers will get some additional perks, like a Tactics Ogre Reborn Collector’s Edition. They will also have a chance to participate in a special pre-order lottery.
The Tactical Ogre Reborn The Collector’s Edition is exclusive to the Square Enix Online Store. As a physical package, it is also exclusive to console editions of the game (PS4, PS5, and Switch). The package comes with the game itself and several exclusive items. These include an art book with illustrations by Akihiko Yoshida and Tsubasa Masao, among others. There is also a three-volume set of script books, containing lines of dialogue from all the story routes. Finally, a mini-CD of the soundtrack and a deck of tarot cards with a special bag and mat complete the offer. The package costs 22,000 yen (about US$165).

Japanese fans who opt for the standard edition rather than Tactical Ogre Reborn However, the collector’s edition will not be completely missing. All game pre-orders placed through Square Enix’s online store will be entered into a lottery for a Glass Pumpkin replica. Only 500 Glass Pumpkins will be produced. Lottery eligibility applies to physical pre-order of the game on consoles. Digital code pre-orders for the PC version are also eligible, as it does not have a physical edition.
Glass Pumpkins are a rare item found throughout the Ogre Battle series (including Ogre Tactics: Let’s Hang Together is part). They are coveted by the legendary witch Deneb. Deneb is a recurring Ogre Battle character, often seen running a shop selling secret items. It is also often recruitable as a playable unit, although players usually need to complete a difficult or time-consuming feat. In the 2010 PSP game, players can sell Deneb 30 Glass Pumpkins (obtained through great effort in the Palace of the Dead optional dungeon) before recruit her to unlock her unique class, Wicce. As a Wicce, Deneb is one of the strongest magical units in the game.
Ogre Tactic: Reborn will be released globally on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5 on November 11, 2022. It will be released on PC on November 12, 2022.
