FF2j was the first Final Fantasy to have an actual story line. The restrictions of the NES, and the fact that the
game is really old, perhaps limited its overall character/story development. Despite this, the story line tends
to be a generally classic-RPG one.
The story line is based on four adolescents. An evil emperor bent on conquering the world attacks their hometown
using demons summoned from hell. In the midst of the attack, their parents are killed, which leads to
them trying to escape, and the beginning of their adventure.
The youths must set out on a journey, filled with courage, betrayal, and death, to stop the tyrannic emperor,
and restore peace and freedom to their Promised Land.
