Big fan translation news. Fire Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow (DS) now has a complete English translation patch available. It's one of the best FEs and I highly recommend it.
some great progress screenshots. I'm guessing the patch will be released sometime in 2013.
2nd Super Robot Wars OG for PS3 got a score of 35/40 on Famitsu. Check out some translated details here. There will be more trailers before the 11/29 release. No details on whether there's a very hard difficulty mode available yet.
Check out Rui Castro's Facebook Tactics game group for some more tactics game news and info.
Some new iOS tactics games to check out:
Solarian Tactics. Looks very much like Hero Academy. I'm sure it has its differences, but it's hard to tell from the short trailer.
Battle Dungeon. It's a cross between a tactics game and a dungeon crawler. Looks interesting!
Cthulhu World Combat. Described as inspired by Advance Wars with some tweaks, and based on the mythology of H.P. Lovecraft. It currently has $24k out of its $300k kickstarter goal, so I doubt it's going to make its funding. Maybe they'll find an investor and make the game anyway?
Some new PC tactics games to check out:
Telepath Tactics. It has 6 player multiplayer, a single player campaign, and a nice map editor with modding support.
Just Tactics. Multiplayer focused tactics game with effect cards, reaction shots, and other neat features.
Battle Academy 2: Eastern Front is now in development. Slitherine Games has set up a forum where you can post your suggestions and feedback.
Finally, Slitherine Games is holding a holiday sale. Battle Academy, Field of Glory, and Panzer Corps can be had for $19.99 each. All good tactics games, although I'd recommend Battle Academy if I had to choose one.
