Story: It's a world out of time; a world where the dreams of a young boy called Pazu soar as high as the mythical floating castle in the sky, created by a mysterious race of people and known as Laputa. Pazu's quest is about to begin when Sheeta, on the run from ruthless pirates who believe she can unlock the secrets to Laputašs many hidden treasures and riches, literally floats down from the skies. With magic spells passed to her from her grandmother, Sheeta is protected by a mysterious, glowing pendant that is comprised of Levitation Crystal; the supposed power of Laputa itself. Pursued by pirates and suspicious government agents, Sheeta and Pazu head for Laputa in order to uncover the secrets of Sheeta's clouded heritage.
