Take up your sword and shield as you assume the charge of a young soldier in the service of the Lord of Hamlin. Charlock has fallen and Alefgard is turning an eye towards the abundant fields of Torland. Your liege has ordered you to seek audience with your king in Moonbrooke for instructions on what to do next. Whether you follow them is your decision to make.
While the player begins his or her adventure in Torland, they will have to choose which faction or kingdom they want to support. Players can join the Knights of Erdrick and besiege their neighbors across the sea or they can take up the cause of the beleaguered defenders and drive the Western foreigners from their shores.
Each player chooses their role and determines the course and outcome of the game because Dragon Warrior Tactics uses a branching storyline where multiple paths are possible. The players' choices have a real and significant impact on the story.
Dragon Warrior Tactics is a hybrid and blends features from both Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy Tactics including a day and night system, job classes and mercenaries, missions or propositions, and more.
In keeping with the spirit and tradition of other Dragon Warrior games, Dragon Warrior Tactics explores the life and times of a cross section of people from various social classes. Many of whom are playable by you.
Dragon Warrior Tactics is an interquel that bridges the canon between Dragon Warrior I and II. Classic 2-D gaming meets Tomoaky's SRPG2 Tactical Battle System to put a spin on one of the forefathers of console RPGs much like Final Fantasy Tactics did for the original Final Fantasy.
