Square Enix has released some screens for the enigmatic expansion of Final Fantasy XI, Wings of the Goddess. SPOnG loves a good mystery as much as anyone, so we've got them below for your enjoyment. Of course, no game would be complete without an accompanying poem, would it? So we've got one of those, too. Except we think someone just translated it directly from Japanese, because it doesn't rhyme.
"There was once a war that shook the very foundations of Vana'diel.
It was a dark and dreadful age.
The lives of many were lost.
The futures of many were destroyed.
The joys of many were extinguished.
However, there are those from that age who remember...
They remember the hope that burned in the darkness.
The companions that banded together.
The heroes that strove onwards.
The rivals that joined forces.
And now history is reborn, as we return to that age of strife..."
Makes you well up, doesn't it?
