Two years after the fall of Dalmasca, the once proud kingdom struggles under the rule of its oppressors.
Subjugated by the mighty Archadian Empire and bereft of its royal family, the kingdom clings
tenuously to life. Dalmasca’s future has been enslaved.
To Vaan, a young man living on the streets of Rabanastre, the Empire is a hated foe that took the life
of his brother. When Vaan meets Princess Ashe, the sole surviving heir to the Dalmascan throne, the
two embark on an incredible journey through Ivalice, tracing the mysteries behind the Archadian
Empire's invasion. As they travel, they encounter others opposed to the Empire. Together, the choices
they make will determine the very fate of the world.
