The Valerian Isles, jewels of the Obero Sea. Long a center of naval commerce, the people here have struggled throughout history for dominion over these shores.
Finally there rose a man to put an end to this conflict. His name: Dorgalua Oberyth. But history would know him as the Dynast-King.
Dorgalua took the disparate races of men calling the islands home and united them as one. For fully half a century he reigned, and Valeria knew prosperity.
But upon his death, three clans rose to claim Valeria for themselves: the aristocratic Bakram, the teeming Galgastani, and the few but hardy Walister. Valeria was once again in the grip of a great blood war.
The Bakram and the Galgastani quickly divided Valeria between themselves, and an uneasy quiet has since settled over the isles. Yet none believe the calm will last.
The game boasts over 50 characters, designed by the talented artists Akihiko Yoshida and Tsubasa Masao. Many new characters that were unable to be included in the original SNES version have been added!
- 3D MAPS
Three-dimensional maps enhance the sense of height and depth, one of the popular features in the original SNES version, while bringing the world to life as never before.
- WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Player choice features prominently in both the story and the tactical battles of the game, encouraging players to think about the results of their actions and how it will affect the fate of the characters and the world around them. The Wheel of Fortune World Tarot system allows players to alter their fate when one course of actions leads to an unfavorable result by moving back in the story to a point before a key decision. Similarly, the Chariot Tarot enables players to jump back to an earlier point of a battle and choose new actions, essentially a “reset” button to explore a different fate.
- NEW CLASS SYSTEM AND SKILLS
Human units now share the same pool of available classes and skills, regardless of gender.
Individual units no longer have levels—instead, all units of the same class share a level and level up together. This avoids “grinding” newly recruited units to catch up to the level of your existing characters, and provides the player a broader selection of strategic choices.
- SOUND AND MOVIES
The music is composed and re-arranged by Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata of Basiscape, with roughly 60 musical compositions in all. What’s more, all the songs in the game are now streamed, providing an authentic, rich sound experience while preserving the tone of the music from the original SNES version.
