Skies of Arcadia (エターナルアルカディア Eternal Arcadia) is a role-playing game developed by Overworks and published by Sega for the Sega Dreamcast console.

Story[edit | edit source]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Characters[edit | edit source]

The main playable characters of Skies of Arcadia are Vyse, son of Blue Rogue captain Dyne and the main protaganist, Aika, Vyse's childhood friend and fellow pirate, and Fina, a mysterious girl on a dire mission.

Additional playable characters are Drachma, an old grumpy man whose mission in life is to hunt down Rhaknam, Gilder, an air pirate captain who's always up for the pleasures of life and excitement, and Enrique, the Crown Prince of Valua who wishes to right the wrongs his country has committed.

The main antagonists are from the Valuan Empire, ruled by Empress Teodora. The Valuan Empire frequently flexes its military might, the Valuan Armada, to try to conquer the world. Among the armada's ranks are Galcian, its Lord Admiral, and his subordinates Alfonso, Gregorio, Vigoro, Belleza, and De Loco. Later, Galcian's vice-captain Ramirez, who has a mysterious connection to Fina, is promoted into their ranks.

Subsequent Appearances[edit | edit source]

Vyse and Aika appear in Guruguru Onsen 2 on the Sega Dreamcast, an online game that had a collection of multiplayer card and board games such as Uno, P(how to turn off spam filter wiki won't let me write this word)oker, Mahjong, and more.

Vyse, Aika, and Fina appear in Valkyria Chronicles on the Sony PlayStation 3 and Senjō no Valkyria 3: Unrecorded Chronicles on the Sony PlayStation Portable. As such, some characters also appear in supplementary materials, such as its anime series.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Plop your copy of Skies of Arcadia into your computer's CD drive to find a 640×480 BMP wallpaper. Inserting the CD into a CD player nets a message about inserting the game into the game console instead.
  • Other than the shopkeepers and guildmasters, no two town NPCs look alike. Even the shopkeepers in Lower City Valua, while identical to their more fortunate counterparts in Sailors' Island, display differences by looking more downtrodden.
