    Engaging Space Saga from Square Enix - makers of Final Fantasy & Kingdom Hearts

    Interplanetary war tests the limits of friendship!

    For five centuries, Earth-led Terran forces have colonized the galaxy. The rebel ADAN "Freedom Alliance" has declared war to end the so-called "Terran tyranny". Two best friends and up-and-coming Terran ace pilots-Katana and Margras-are separated by the unstable political situation on Margras' home planet, Archeron. Soon after Margras is forced into exile, Archeron is destroyed in a suspicious terra-forming accident that kills most of the population and renders the planet uninhabitable. Driven by revenge, Margras joins the ADAN fleet and leads merciless raids against his former Terran comrades. As Katana, it's up to you to stop your closest friend and end the cosmos-spanning war.
