He shows up before the protagonists with a huge splash. The King of the Monsters’ chance encounter with mankind. The movement of his giant body shakes the ship. While the ship’s loaded containers fly about, the protagonists’ escape begins.

Still, the giant shadow that covers the city is an existence shrouded in mystery. Although the “Giant of Light” was previously introduced, this time the identity of another shadow was confirmed. Compared to humanity, it is a new kind of enormous.

2. Attacking Giant Shadows!

The form of the giant shadow that covers the town this time is revealed. The appearance of a giant monster stomping about the city can be confirmed.

The “living” threat is approaching the protagonists! The huge monster stomping about the city and tearing up buildings. The people have no choice but to freeze in fear at its overwhelming power.

The difference in scale between humans and the “King of the Monsters” who appeared this time is overwhelming, and every move is certain to be a major threat. However, precisely because humanity is so small in comparison, there is hope. By taking advantage of your small size and maneuverability, it is possible to outsmart the giant shadows. You don’t have any means of actively attacking the giant shadow, given that you’re a regular human being, but using various actions, you can survive the threat.

3. Heroine, Yuki Kano

The protagonists of this game have no special powers, they’re not heroes burdened with a big mission. They are ordinary human beings like you’d find anywhere. However, because you’re a normal human being, that means you can protect the heroine, who is also a normal human being.

The living threat brought about by the huge shadows. The protagonists’ greatest mission is to survive. However, there is no sense in surviving only on your own. Only when you survive protecting the ones you love is there the sense that you’ve achieved your mission.
