FF Tactics: The War Of The Lions is an epic combat adventure set in the Final Fantasy universe. Re-enter the world of Ivalice and experience a land of imaginative artistic design that provides a sumptuous backdrop to a politically charged tale, where two young men endeavor to reshape the course of history.

Originally released in 1998 on the PlayStation game console, Final Fantasy Tactics, the first tactical RPG in the legendary Final Fantasy series, enthralled fans around the world with its unique artistic style and intricate storyline. Shipping more than 1.1 million copies in North America, Final Fantasy Tactics opened the genre to legions of new fans.

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, reborn and enhanced exclusively for the PSP system, introduces never-before-seen cinematic sequences, an entirely new English translation, 16:9 widescreen presentation and multiplayer features that will reintroduce this classic to a new generation of gamers.

In days now long past, the War of the Lions rent the land of Ivalice in two. And it is here that two young men of note first stepped onto history's stage. The first is a man named Delita Heiral, the hero who would draw the curtain on the War of the Lions, this dark act of Ivalice's history. The other, whose role is now forgotten, is a man by the name of Ramza Beoulve. Peer through the eyes of these two young men, and uncover the secrets that lie hidden within history's darkened folds.
