Two dukes named Duke Larg and Duke Goltanna Ovelia, battle for the title of regency in the king's court. Players take on enemies seen in the original release and new bands of marauders as both Delita and Ramza. During the journey characters from other Final Fantasy titles make cameo appearances.

War of the Lions adds Onion King and Dark Knight to the roster, bringing the total paths of study to 22.

Gamers may duel against friends through an Ad-Hoc connection or battle with them through a series of quests obtained from the Tavernmaster. Combat against an Ad-Hoc opponent is completely customizable, and players may adjust a handful engagement rules including locking weapons and special knock back conditions. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
