About

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is a tactical RPG originally released for the Nintendo 64 system. 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.

This classic game is part of the Virtual Console service, which brings you great games created for consoles such as NES™, Super NES™ and Game Boy™ Advance. We hope you'll enjoy the new features (including off-TV play) that have been added to this title. See more Virtual Console games for Wii U.

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber reviews and comments

Ogre Battle 64 is an offbeat RPG that got hit in the head and woke up thinking it's an RTS. The combination worked well despite the clunky N64 controller, which thankfully is not required to play this game anymore. Your characters are all of the familiar RPG classes, and you form them into squads of 5 or so from a menu that's reminiscent of Final Fantasy Tactics. Actually, a lot of this game is reminiscent of Tactics, but that's not a bad thing.

Because of the 5-man squad mechanic, your army is highly customizable, but you will learn that there are only so many different units that really work well together. Still, there is enough variety to play the game many times with a completely different set of characters. Be warned that the alignment system decides which optional characters you can access, and it's not mentioned in-game, ever.
