When the Shadow Lord, the most feared force of all, is said to have returned, four kingdoms send out a call for adventurers far and wide to join the fight and defend the land of Vana'diel.
Although wildly popular in the US (with more than 500,000 subscribers as of early 2004), the game was less so in Japan. Square-Enix made a public claim that unless they could get 200,000 Japanese players to sign up and play the game, it would not be exported to the US due to financial failure. The release of the PS2 version shot up sales enough for US players to get the game.
