Final Fantasy Wiki

The Ivalice Alliance is a games project by Square Enix, originally created by Akitoshi Kawazu, akin to the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII and Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy. The games in this project are all set in the fictional world of Ivalice, the world in which the stories in Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy XII are set.


Designer Yasumi Matsuno created the world of Ivalice as a medieval-style setting with its own identity in which Final Fantasy Tactics would take place. Its first appearance was in that game, which was also Matsuno's first project at Square Enix.[1] His next project, Vagrant Story, was not originally meant to be set in Ivalice, but it was retconned into the series through references in Final Fantasy XII.[2] The term "Ivalice Alliance" was first coined in 2007, with Akitoshi Kawazu citing its aim as "[spreading] the word about the world of Ivalice" and attracting more players to the Final Fantasy series.[3] Although Matsuno once termed the references between the games as "fan service",[4] he also stated that the games' events unfolded quite close to each other and over a long period of time.[5] In a 2007 interview, Motomu Toriyama, the director of Revenant Wings, commented that during the intervening years, Ivalice had become " more of Square Enix's world", particularly with the creation of Final Fantasy XII.[6]
