A fantasy trip
The Apocrypha Ivalice accompanies us on a journey that goes from the first trip to Bordeaux, where the development team looked for inspiration for the creation of this work, which has gone down in history as one of the cult role-playing games. Unfortunately, Square Enix has not worked on any version adapted to the current times.
“Follow in the footsteps of Ashley Riot through the city of Leá Monde in search of the Müllenkamp sect, a journey that will lead him to discover mysterious powers hidden for thousands of years.” Vagrant Story was released on the first PlayStation when PlayStation 2 was about to be commercialized. Something similar happened with Final Fantasy IX, although in the latter case it was a world-famous saga. The world of Ivalice from Vagrant Story was rescued in titles like Final Fantasy XII or Final Fantasy Tactics.
