Yasumi Matsuno himself was an enthusiast of music and fan of the rock band Queen, as illustrated by the many references found throughout Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen. In Valeria can be located one of Freddie Mercury's "Seven Seas of Rhye," while the 1993 sequel is named Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, after a song found on the virtuoso rock band's "A Day at the Races." For Hitoshi Sakimoto's third major title with Quest, Masaharu Iwata was designated the principal composer for the project. Tactics Ogre's soundtrack also includes music by Hayato Matsuo, notable for his facility with symphonic arrangements. As with other albums shared by Sakimoto and Iwata, was divided in two parts. Represented on the music album are both the original sound versions found in the Super Famicom title and enhanced MIDIs of superior sampling quality, suggesting that the score was truly meant for a fully symphonic arrangement. A worthy successor to the Ogre Battle OST and a notable precursor to Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre deserves the attention of hardcore game music enthusiasts.
