Final Fantasy Tactics Advance Radio Edition is a Radio Drama that was dedicated to Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It was aired in January and February 2003. There is a Complete Version which was released by DigiCube in form of four CDs. The first one was released February 26, 2003. One CD represents one volume, while one volume consists of three chapters (except for volume one, which consists of four) and One Extra Chapter. The background music played in the drama was originally from Disc 2 of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance: Original Soundtrack. In live radio broadcasts, the song Shiroi Hana plays during the epilogue. A premium edition contains a poster and a calendar.

PlotEdit

The plot is slightly different from the original game, and the main characters are immediately transferred to Ivalice after Mewt Randell reads Alta Oron Sondus Kameela. Nono appears much earlier in the storyline than the before. At the first battle with the Bangaa, it was forbidden to use Magic instead of using items. Because of this, Montblanc receives a Yellow Card after casting Fire to a Bangaa. Then one of the Bangaa received a Red Card and was sent into prison because he had hit Nono, a non-participant, with Aero.

Another difference is that Doned says that Marche is Ritz's boyfriend, but Ritz insists it is a lie. Unlike the original game, Ritz, Mewt, and even Doned's arrival are shown. Upon Doned's arrival, he meets up with a Judge.

Nono's airship's name is revealed, which is called the "Brilliante". When the Brilliante was about to be fixed by Nono along with Montblanc, a lever is stuck which causes an explosion. The Brilliante was then used to go to the Bervenia Palace. This was mentioned again in Hurdy's sidestory from Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.

Later in the radio drama, Marche, Montblanc, Ritz, Shara, Doned, Judgemaster Cid, and Babus joined forces against Queen Remedi. During the battle, Montblanc knew Time Magic while Ritz knew Spirit Magic. The team also summoned Totema based on their race. Instead of summoning Exodus like in the game, Ritz summons Mateus, while Cid summons Adrammelech.

At the ending, instead of meeting with Biggs, Cid Randell invites a drinking friend. And at the ending, a voice, presumably Montblanc, says to Marche that he hopes to see him in a dream.
