Lord of Vermilion is a Japanese collectible card game franchise created by Think Garage and distributed by Square Enix. In the game, players put physical cards on an arcade machine and seek to destroy the enemy’s Arcane Stones and servants. It also spawned two spin-off video games, Lord of Arcana for the PSP and Lord of Apocalypse for PSP and Vita. The second sequel to the original game, Lord of Vermilion III, was released in Japanese arcades on August 22, 2013.

While the game is known for having crossovers with other franchises such as BlazBlue and Magic: The Gathering, a recent trailer showcased Ramza Beoulve and Agrias Oaks to the delight of Final Fantasy Tactics fans. Ramza has the ability Shout that raises his stats and makes him into a powerhouse. Meanwhile, Agrias blasts away with her Judgement Blade attack that can freeze enemies in place. Both of these additions are sure to bring more attention to the already popular game.

Also note worthy, the trailer features a beautifully remastered version of the Final Fantasy Tactics battle theme, Trisection.

He spends most of his gaming time with either story-based or strategy games. As an aspiring novelist, he blames games like Earthbound and Final Fantasy Tactics for getting him started. Antonin graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI with a degree in English Literature. When not gaming, he can be found reading, obsessing over something on Twitter, or researching strange folklore.

    i wish they would bring this to america… i bet during the 70’s and 80’s this would have been really popular. i have yet to really start playing FF Tactics and EarthBound even though i own both games…

      Technically, there’s nothing stopping an arcade owner from importing the machines. But I can’t think of very many arcades these days, and it would probably be fruitless as anyone who would want to play would have to import the cards. That’s a lot of time and money spent before the game even begins. If they marketed the whole thing right, I bet it’d be a hit with Magic: The Gathering fans but that’s a hell of a gamble.

      But you really should play those games. Not to be biased, but OBJECTIVELY speaking, they’re basically the best games ever. 😛

      Earthbound has the best fandom ever though.

      i am working on it, but… i recently got Tales of the Abyss 3DS, Tales of Symphonia HD, and Bravely Default, and i want to beat those games first.

    You know what game would be better with Ramza and Agrias? Final Fantasy Tactics 2.

    Square is unable to make good games anymore.
