The Last Remnant told the story of a world filled with Remnants — mysterious artifacts from an ancient era.
No one knew who created the Remnants, or how long they had existed, but even with these question around their origins, they still became tools for the good of civilization.
However, the powers of the Remnants slowly began to change the world’s balance and a rift formed between those who ruled and those who obeyed.
This was the dawning of a new era — an era of countless frays that would be brought upon the world by those enslaved by their own lust for power.
Then, a thousand years later, the real story begins, with the journey of a young man, determined to uncover the truth.
