The game takes players to an era when the Cocoon crumbles. In this new world, everyone assumes that Lightning is dead, except for Sara, who has never given up on her sister.

A new character came into the picture. Noel has powerful spells up his sleeve and together with Sara and the Moogle, they set off to explore the unknown lands. Monsters attack in hordes and after the battle, players will be presented with an option to befriend these beasts. The beasts all have special skills, so make good use of them to boost your attacks.

Cinematic cut-ins plays a huge roll in the battles. Punch in the right button sequences on screen to launch a sure kill skill.

From the publisher: 500 years ago, a demon hunter and his wife challenged the demon king in a battle. Losing the battle and the love of his life, the demon hunter was rendered immortal by the demon king. His name is Bryce. Brokenhearted with no purpose in life, yet not even permitted to die.

Now he hunts weaker demons to earn small change for his daily drinks. Although there is no need for him to eat. Modern day. Behind the shadows of a seemingly peaceful city, many incidents have occurred where it is believed by some that they were caused by "demons".
