Set on the planet Shinorubi, the game revolves around the struggle for the rare and powerful compound known as “R-R.” This substance grants great power and exceptional longevity to those who possess it. For a thousand years, the BAÄA family has monopolized control over Shinorubi and safeguarded the “R-R” for their own gain. However, hope arises with the legend that the King’s sanctuary will open on the solstice of the 1000th year of their reign. Eight former members of the King’s army, now rebels, plan to seize this opportunity and bring an end to the family’s reign of madness.
