Square Enix has announced that they will be releasing the DS title Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift on June 24, 2008 in North America. The follow-up to 2003's Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, A2 is the third title in the "Ivalice Alliance" series. FFTA2 will feature stylus-based control, as well as more jobs than its GBA cousin.
"Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift makes the tactical RPG genre accessible to fans who may be unfamiliar with the grid-based battle system," said Director Yuichi Murasawa. "While maintaining the classic functionality of the much-loved gameplay, this newest release boasts upgrades that enable a more engrossing and fulfilling tactical RPG experience."
Players will follow the story of Luso, a boy who stumbles upon a magical book that transports him to the land of Ivalice. Luso will meet up with characters from Final Fantasy XII, as well, such as Vaan, Penelo, and Al-Cid. FFTA2 will launch at the MSRP of $39.99 and has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
