Battle Fantasia Prologue
There was once a time when the world was engulfed in darkness. Mankind fought six battles to save their world, but lost every single one. All hope was lost for humanity and many turned to god with prayers. But one day the darkness was finally driven back by the swords of four heroes.
Light returned to the world, and with it came peace and serenity. The world was then divided into two major countries: The Magic Kingdom and the Steam Empire. The people prospered like never before
But in recent months, strange things have begun to happen. Rumors spread among the people that the darkness was returning...
However, fate has once again brought together warriors from all over the world. Some fight in the relentless pursuit ofjustice. Some fight due to their conviction and faith.
As the battle looms near, an epic new tale of new heroes begins to unfold...
