Due to the popularity of our continuously updated list of games like Final Fantasy tactics. We’ve brought you an additional list with a few games that you won’t find on the original list. As you know, the fan favourite Final Fantasy Tactics was released in 1997, in Japan.

These 2021 and 2022 games are sure to be fun if you enjoyed Final Fantasy Tactics. Some are slightly different and others similar but trust us, they might be worth a visit. Imagine awesome anime art design inspired game visuals in some epic turn-based and JRPG-style games. All are available on a long list of consoles, including PC and Nintendo Switch. We’re happy to keep your bedroom gaming sessions exciting with these recommendations.

Final Fantasy Tactics, based in the world of Ivalice, sees us assuming the role of Cadet, Ramza Beoulve in The Lion War. Our main character is joined by some great companions along the journey who accompany him.

As far as the combat system, director Yasumi Matsuno opts for tactical square grid battles where you have to manage positions. In this list, we present a few more games like Final Fantasy Tactics with a few differences here and there, but they’ll surely give you some interesting stories and battles to immerse yourself in.
