Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Information

Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Review
Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Fuuketsu no Grimoir is yet another installment in The Ivalice Alliance, which is an umbrella term covering all the games that relate in some way to Ivalice, the main world in Final Fantasy XII. Although Final Fantasy Tactics Advance was on the GBA, this sequel is going to be published on the Nintendo DS. It has been referred to as the third game in a set of games called the "Ivalice Alliance", the first being Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings (for the Nintendo DS) and the second being Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions (for the PlayStation Portable), a port of the original Final Fantasy Tactics.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Storyline
The setting is similar to that of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy XII. There are seven playable races in the game: Hume, Moogle, Viera, Bangaa, Seeq, Nu Mou and Gria. Chronologically, the game takes place some time after Final Fantasy XII.
Similar to Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Luso was a mischievous boy who lived in the real world until he was punished for a prank he pulled just before summer break. Locked away in the library, Luso finds an old book and writes his name on it. The book then transports him into the world of Ivalice. Rather than wishing to return home, Luso decides to venture the world farther However, unlike in the previous installment, the main character travels to the real Ivalice, instead of a creation of his imagination born of strong feelings, this fact is reinforced by the reappearances of familiar characters such as Vaan and Penelo.
Additionally, references to Final Fantasy Tactics are present through the existence of the Kamyuja criminal organization, which first appeared in Final Fantasy Tactics in relation to the characters Malak and Rafa Galthana.
