A sinister being who calls himself Dhaos wishes to suck the earth dry of its resources. He seeks the power of the Tree of Life to create a Mana seed. Cless, Klarth, Chester, Archie, and Mint must stop him before he destroys the world. Use the Eternal Sword to travel through time and meet interesting characters. Learn and execute a myriad of attack techniques using Street Fighter-esque control. Befriend Elemental Spirits and use them to cast spells. Fill your inventory with an arsenol of devestating weapons and life-saving items.
Truly, if there is evil in this world, it lies within the heart of mankind.

This game was released/re-released/remade a total of three times, originally for the Super Famicom, a second time for the Playstation, and the most recent time for the Gameboy Advance. Much of the controls and such were reworked for later versions (very similar to later games in the series, such as Tales of Destiny, in fact.) See more
Both the SNES and GBA versions have a quote, by Edward D. Morrison, at the start of their intro, which is spoken aloud as well as printed. Morrison is the name of one of the NPCs who helps you on your quest. See more
