In a nameless world, soldier training schools known as "Gardens" exsist. The privately owned Gardens are unrelated to any government or military organisations, although they make their money from sending their graduates to join military forces the world over. However, each Garden also has special squads known as SeeD, formed from groups of graduates chosen for having abilities beyond those required for standard millitary duty.
At the Balamb Garden Military Academy, a new SeeD cadet called Squall Leonhart is quickly earning himself a reputation as an overly serious loner with the recruits. That is, he does until he encounters Rinoa Heartilly, a beautiful free-spirited girl who forces him to question his own anti-social ways. Unfortunately, before he has time to dwell on those thoughts, his squad is called into action to deal with the nation of Galbadia who have become increasingly hostile as of late. Is this irrational behaviour connected to the mysterious sorceress that has recently been seen with the country's president?
So begins a tale of love, war, friendship and self discovery that captures the high drama of a film with stunning CG cinematics and combines them with exceptional RPG playing experience in true Final Fantasy tradition. The innovative Junction System places the development of the various characters under your control as you determine how their magical abilities will evolve and imprive throughout the game.
