Arcana (known as Card Master in Japan) is a RPG for the SNES, by HAL Laboratory. The game was novel in representing all of its characters as cards, but it plays like a dungeon-crawling RPG, rather than a card based game.

In keeping with this metaphor, the death of a character resulted in a "torn" card, and the magical properties of some cards were used to explain abilities of the game's characters.

Long time ago, an evil sorceress Castomira decided to conquer the world. But a good princess revolted against her, and in a great fight defeated the sorceress. But in order to completely seal the sorceress powers, the princess had to forge a magic sword.

For a long time this sword guarded the peace of the citizens of Arcus. But now the followers of Castomira stole it, and the world is facing a great peril.
