If you're a fan of oldschool strategy games, especially things like Final Fantasy Tactics, you might want to check out the newly launched Fae Tactics. To put it simply, Fae Tactics will have you explore the world while befriending a wide variety of characters, battle and capture a myriad of Fae creatures, and naturally, manage both your equipment and magical elements in order to best counter whatever challenge gets thrown right at you.

You can get a pretty good idea of how all of this translates into actual gameplay, as well as what sort of visual style Fae Tactics is going for, through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a peek:

Before you decide on whether to dive in, I do have one bit of warning - Fae Tactics battles can take a long time, especially some of the later ones. Not only are there a lot of characters and enemies to mess around with, but the animations also eat up a lot of time, which can get a little bit grating if you decide to play it for long periods. It's not exactly a massive downside given that this sort of thing comes with the territory for tactics games, but it's still well worth keeping in mind regardless.

Whatever your thoughts on the matter may be, you can learn more about Fae Tactics, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, over at the official website. Have fun!
