The game takes players to an era when the Cocoon crumbles. In this new world, everyone assumes that Lightning is dead, except for Sara, who has never given up on her sister. A new character came into the picture. Noel has powerful spells up his sleeve and together with Sara and the Moogle, they set off to explore the unknown lands. Monsters attack in hordes and after the battle, players will be presented with an option to befriend these beasts. The beasts all have special skills, so make good use of them to boost your attacks. Cinematic cut-ins plays a huge roll in the battles. Punch in the right button sequences on screen to launch a sure kill skill.
