Some years ago I was surfing the web and I read about a Super Nintendo game called

Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen.

I have never tried it, so I'm just wondering if any of you guys have tried it...?

A later game in the series is called

Ogre Battle: Let us cling together.


When I read about it some years ago, I wrote an e-mail to the producer of the game and asked him about the title, and he said that the creator of the game was a huge Queen-fan.

And now today I found a link with some more info:

Check for an Emulator for NES or SNES and download the Rom of this Game (http://www.romnation.net/srv/roms/41939/snes/Ogre-Battle-U.html), then you can play it on your PC. The Emulator should be on the same website. I love it because I can download all my old games for free from years and years back (gameboy or sega genesis etc.) to play them on my computer.

T H A N K S ! ! !

Since I read about "Ogre Battle", I always wondered what the game was really about. Now I now!

(I also got "James Bond - Golden Eye" for Nintendo 64, that brought back some memories...)

One of Matsuno's trademarks is to pay homage to the rock band Queen in his works. His first game was titled Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen. Both Ogre Battle and March of the Black Queen are song titles from the album Queen II. His next game was Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, Let Us Cling Together being a song from the album A Day at the Races. His game Final Fantasy Tactics had a chapter called Somebody to Love, also a song title from A Day At the Races. In the game Vagrant Story, the lead character begins the game with a sword called Fandango, which is a reference to a lyric in the song Bohemian Rhapsody, from A Night At The Opera. In Final Fantasy XII, the earth elemental summon uses an attack called "Rock You", a nod to the song We Will Rock You from the album News of the World. Rock You has been changed to "Roxxor" in the localized English game, a likely play on Internet slang.
