Announced last year, the DS sequel to the GBA's Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (which received a score of nine from PALGN back in 2003) was shown at last week's Square-Enix Party in Japan, and Japanese magazine Famitsu posted some new info as the hype begins for its release later in the year.
Simply called Final Fantasy Tactics A2, this time the story is about a boy named Luso, who comes across the magic book from the first game while tidying the school library as punishment for playing up, and, as expected, is warped to the tactical land of Ivalice.
According to Famitsu's site (and via Xcomp's blog on GameBrink) we can also reveal this new information about the game:
- Sub quests will have an effect on storyline
- The world map will be split into areas, and areas will be further split into stages.
- Fulfilling certain conditions unlocks new areas.
- Monsters will have ranks and some other features not yet revealed.
- The Judge and Law systems remain as a trademark of FFTA. With a Judge in your clan, your members can only be revived if you donâ€™t break any of the clan laws. Opponents can also have a Judge on their team.
- The prison is now gone. You can earn merit points for having a Judge in your clan.
- No opening FMV.
- Controlled by both stylus and the D-Pad.
- 10 new jobs if you count the different races.
