The Prologue, titled A Final Hope, is the first level available in the Light to All story mode in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. It features a single gateway designed to introduce the player to new aspects of the story mode, namely the Bonus Line and Emblem features. The Warrior of Light is controlled for the duration of this prologue. Upon completion, the ten chapters are unlocked.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

With the start of the 13th cycle, the Warrior of Light awakens in Order's Sanctuary. Upon hearing Cosmos's voice stating that she had been defeated and seeing a light in the distance, the warrior decides to walk up and investigate it.

After defeating all the manikins, the Warrior of Light finds Cosmos. Appearing to all the Warriors of Cosmos, Cosmos asks them to obtain their crystals as they can be used to save the world.

Spoilers end here.

This is the first gateway where Emblems are used, and the player has the option to adjust their level to the bonus line - in this and all storylines in "Light to All", having a character at a level higher than the bonus line gives them a KP penalty in the gateway, while having a lower-level character grants them a bonus to KP. Other than these new features this gateway should be simple to clear out. Use Straight Chain at C3 to chain two of them together with the Physical Critical Rate Up Emblem.
