■ Prologue

Final Fantasy Explorers-Force

50 years ago, the great war centered on the Empire and the Kingdom not only resulted in a large consumption of Crystal Energy, it also significantly exhausted the planet and atomshpere.

Mankind’s foolish actions were met with calamity. And summons beasts appeared all throughout the world.

In order to face this overwhelming threat, the major countries ended their war, and under the pretext of bringing peace the world, established an international organization to oppose the summons beasts.

This was the predecessor of the organization that later came to be called the “International Peace Alliance,” which cracks down on not only disasters, but also cross-national conflicts, and has currently been watching over the world for 50 years as a symbol of peace and justice.


That is the alias of the army possessed by the International Peace Alliance.

The “Soldiers” that belong to FORCE are combat and investigation specialists that have trained bodies, sharpened minds, and use the power of crystals as an ability.

Many of them were once known as “Explorers” devoted to adventuring the world.

And now, one young person living in a remote region sets off on a journey in order to become a Soldier of the International Peace Alliance’s FORCE.

But they do not yet know… that they are about to get involved in a major incident where the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
