Between all the Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy games we got a quality release that should keep you busy until the next major retro RPG. Square Enix put Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen on the Virtual Console for 800 Wii Points ($8).
First released on the Super Nintendo and later ported to the PsOne, Ogre Battle has warriors fighting against an evil empire. While the plot sounds cliche, Ogre Battle makes use of a unique real time strategy meets classic RPG combat system. It’s different from your run of the mill grid based strategy RPG and has multiple endings to find. The Super Nintendo cartridge was quite a rarity so it’s a good thing Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen is getting a digital re-release.
