- Machine: Sega Genesis
Following in the great tradition of such role-playing games as Phantasy Star and Phantasy Star II, Sword of Vermilion brings to the Genesis the colorful graphics and involved storylines we've come to expect from Sega RPGs.
The story behind Sword of Vermilion actually begins 18 years before the game starts. It was then that the evil king Tsarkon sent his legions into the peaceful kingdom of Excalabria. When Excalabria crumbled, its king, Erik V, entrusted his infant son to a servant and told him to flee the land to protect the young prince.
The servant, Blade, sought refuge in a distant village. There, Blade raised the prince as his own son.
But Tsarkon learned that the prince had escaped. Fearing that the boy might someday return to challenge him, Tsarkon sent his armies into the countryside to find Blade and the prince.
As the game begins, you are the prince, now a young man. You have no idea of your true identity - but before the day is through, your life will change dramatically.
