The previous story overview:
- The game takes place in Tokyo, in the year 203X.
- A war that erupted between the gods 25 years ago forced people to avoid contact with the outside world by using thick bedrock as a cover.
- Survivors remained after the war ended, but a lack of resources has people killing each other, and humans are dominated by the angels and demons who are at the top of the food chain.
Expanding upon the previously released character details:
The protagonist (voiced by Hiro Shimono) has been spending his days as an apprentice of an organization called the Outlaw Hunters. He takes a surprise attack from a demon while out on a mission, then dies.
After his death, the protagonist wanders around the kingdom of Hades, and it’s where he encounters the Majin (Demon God) known as “Daguza” (shown above). The young man reluctantly comes to an agreement with Daguza, who had plans of his own.
“From this day forward, you will be my ‘God Killer.’ Together, we will kill all gods.”
Daguza then provides the young man with a new life, and the “demon summoning” ability, that lets him call out demons to his aid. The young man goes back to reality with his newfound power that is more than enough to make it through the fights at the Demon Capital, Tokyo, alongside Daguza, who resides inside the protagonist’s smartphone, as he begins to monitor the young man…
During this time, the “Final War” between the Archangel Merkabah and the Demon King Lucifer was nearing its end; however, a group of gods called the “Association of Gods” have descended.
Led by the Majin Krishna, with the objective of “relieving all humans,” the group begins to demand mankind to relinquish their souls.
