Square Enix has pinned down a June 27 PAL territory release date for the Nintendo DS turn-based battle title Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.

The game begins when Luso, an energetic young boy, discovers a mysterious book in the library. He opens the book and is transported to another world called Ivalice and finds himself joining a clan led by a man named Cid. With the help of his new clan Luso must find his way home.

The DS' dual screens become a tactical battlefield where players take control of a clan of fighters, mages and more. Earn a reputation for your clan as battles are won and in doing so enable a wealth of customisation options.

Square is also promising "stunning visuals", an orchestral soundtrack and touch screen functionality not included in the original Japanese version.

"To our fans' delight, fun strategy gameplay and an engaging story come together in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. Nintendo DS users will be able to enjoy a tactical and epic adventure while exploring the world of Ivalice. This is a deep and absorbing title that I hope everyone will find time to enjoy this summer," said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift is scheduled for release in PAL territories on June 27.
