As he grow up and to celebrate his coming-of-age ceremony, Amber reveals that he is actually adopted and he needs to go back go Heliodor to meet King Carmelian. As you make your way into the castle, you’re accused of being a cursed evil entity and was sentenced to prison. That’s where you met Erik and escaped the prison. From there your adventure awaits and you have to make your way to Yggdrasil. As you venture on, you meet a good number of comrades to fight along with you.
The game is rich with every aspects you can imagine, it is one of the most perfect JRPG up-to-date. With super well written story both engaging and exciting. It gets even better with the overall atmosphere from the soundtrack to the well drawn art from the famous Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball) with the minds of Yuji Horii, the godfather of JPRG and music composed by Koichi Sugiyama.
It is one of the best JRPG that fans must not resist and can’t miss it.
