Prepare to journey through a living, breathing fantasy world in the Square-Enix/tri-ACE co-production Radiata Stories. Explore a living, breathing fantasy world where time passes and NPCs all have their own daily routines. Recruit allies and pick sides in the war between humans and the faerie. The future's riding on your decisions.

The tale begins in the kingdom of Radiata, which lies in a world where humans and fairy creatures coexist. It is here that the protagonists, Jack and Ridley, meet for the first time. While Jack seeks to become a knight, Ridley must accept her fate in becoming one. The outrageous events that occur while they are training take a turn when Jack is forced to decide which side he will fight for. Destinies are realized when a war erupts between the humans and the fairy creatures and threatens to end the world of Radiata.
