Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is a remake of Final Fantasy Tactics that was ported onto the Playstation Portable (PSP), and bonus content was added into this port including Voice Overs and digital Cel-Shaded animation scenes. This port also included one new class, the Dark Knight and Onion Knight. There were also two new characters added to the game: Balthier (from Final Fantasy XII) and Luso (from Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift).

Also included was a wireless multiplayer mode which had co-op and versus mode. The scripts were rewritten, which added a more old age feel.

[edit] Plot

The game is told through the framing device of a historian, Arazlam Durai, who shed light on a specific era of Ivalice's history: the War of the Lions, and King Delita Heiral's rise to power; in an attempt to convince listeners that Ramza Beoulve, is the true hero of the era. In order to prove his claim, the player is put into a flashback of Ramza's day. Ramza was a mercenary employed as a bodyguard to protect Princess Ovelia. Though Ramza and his companions defend the monastery, a rogue kidnapper sneaks in the back and makes off with the princess: The kidnapper is revealed to none other than Delita Heiral, future king and Ramza's best friend. Much of the story itself stays with that of the original game

[edit] Battle System

FFT based much of its celebrated gameplay on those previously implemented in Tactics Ogre (developed by Quest before the company was eventually acquired by Square Soft). Thanks to its Final Fantasy branding, FFT helped bring the tactical RPG genre into the mainstream outside of Japan. As the norm with tactical RPGs, players assemble a party of characters both unique and generic, with development centered around a "Job" system. The Jobs are akin to character classes, each with their own unique Ability sets that characters can utilize and eventually learn to use without class requirements.

As characters master Abilities, they can be deployed into battles on isometric fields with varying terrain and layouts. Proper use of characters and whatever Abilities they have at the ready are crucial to mastering battles, as only a set number of characters can ever be deployed in each one.
