What is Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber?

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is a strategy video game hybrid that combines elements from the tactical role-playing and real-time strategy genres. It was originally released in Japan in 1999 and North America in 2000 for the Nintendo 64.

Unfortunately, Nintendo closed the WiiU eShop in 2023, so there is not currently any way to purchase the game.

There are currently no announced plans to re-release the game, but Square Enix recently released a remake of another game in the series, Tactics Ogre Reborn. It is also possible, though unlikely, that Ogre Battle 64 will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pak service in the future.

Let’s Play by locuacius:
A written walkthrough in a let’s play format with many screenshots and details about game systems. However, due to the nature of let’s plays, it is not comprehensive and only represents a single playthrough.

Prima Player’s Guide:
A scanned copy of the original Prima Player’s Guide. This guide is very detailed, but it also contains many errors. It can be helpful to new players, but keep in mind that it primarily guides you through one route of the game and misses a lot of the details. Blech san has documented some of the errors in a separate guide, but the corrections listing is incomplete and has some errors of its own.

Game Systems Guides

Chaos Frame

Chaos Frame is an invisible reputation value that determines which special characters you can recruit and which ending you receive. Exactly how this system works is still not completely understood.

Character Alignment

Alignment determines which classes your units can change into and if you liberate or capture strongholds.

Love and Peace

Love & Peace is a rare item that can be used during missions to recruit characters from enemy units. It is best used to recruit rare or limited character classes like Black Knights, Angel Knights, and Saturos.
