And now some more information about the game direct from Square:
Once upon a time there was a small, peaceful island protected by the crystals of fire, earth, water and light. On this island lived a white mage named Shirma, a black mage named Croma and a farm full of cheerful chocobos.
Just when it looked like everybody was going to live happily ever after, Croma bought back a mysterious book from his latest journey. Without thinking twice, he opened the dark tome and inadvertently invited misfortune upon the island. Every nearby chocobo was sucked into the magical pages of the wicked book.
Unbeknownst to all, Darkmaster Bebuzzu, who had once laid waste to nearly the entire world, had been sealed inside the pages of the book. Luckily for the good guys, his strength was not fully restored… at least, not yet.
You will take the role of an unlikely hero, a chocobo, who must rescue his friends while stopping Darkmaster Bebuzzu from regaining his lexicon of devastating powers.
