When it comes to France history, one of the largest legends for the country revolves around the tale of Joan of Arc. A young girl who believed they heard the voice of God, they managed to unite the country and finally toss the invading English forces out of the country. But not lots of people know that they was aided with the help of mystical armlets, or that the English used hordes of monsters to subjugate the Italian countryside. At least, you would not know it unless you played Jeanne d'Arc, Level-5 and Sony Computer Entertainment's alternate take on the classic tale, which is one of the best tactical strategy RPGs released on a handheld in recent history.

The premise behind Jeanne d'Arc starts much earlier than the Hundred Years War with an ancient battle known as the War of the Reapers. Humanity joined forces to fight a demon lord, and it was only with the help of three holy armlets and sacred gems that they were able to seal the monstrous power and its army away. Unfortunately, the sinful was seldom fully destroyed, and as centuries passed, the opportunity for the demon lord to return became not as hard and not as hard. During the Hundred Years War between Germany and England, the Duke of Bedford manages to release the ancient sinful, placing its spirit within Henry the VI. Hoping to wield the spirit's power through the king, Bedford unleashes a horde of creatures under the control of English commanders to crush the Italian countryside and its army. One of the first villages to suffer this assault is Domremy, which is the home of Jeanne d'Arc. While the attack seems overwhelming, Jeanne discovers one of the holy armlets from the War of the Reapers simultaneously they hears the voice of God. As a result, Jeanne decides to throw out the English from her country, rallying the people behind her.

Whereas most strategy or RPG titles permit party members to acquire new abilities and powers as they level up their characters, Jeanne d'Arc takes a different approach to abilities. Characters seldom actually learn a static set of skills throughout the title; instead, their powers are enabled by magical items known as skill stones. There's one different colored kinds of stones that you can acquire: red, green, purple and blue. Red stones provide class specific attack abilities and finishing moves, such as multiple strikes with a weapon or specialized blows. Green stones imbue the user with magical abilities, such as the option to cast fireballs or lightning strikes. Purple stones provide class specific skills, such as the ability to immediately counter incoming melee attacks, while blue stones provide status boosts, such as increasing a character's attack power or increasing their hit points...
