Here is a brief overview of the story:
A space-time distortion caused by the “Azure Tree” suddenly appears in the continent of Zemuria, and due to someone’s use of “Aureole, the Shining Ring,” Crossbell Police investigator Lloyd Bannings is thrown into a different dimension. Why did the space-time distortion occur? And who used the power of the Shining Ring? In order to determine the cause, as well as return to Zemuria, Lloyd begins an investigation alongside Special Support Section member Elie MacDowell in the mysterious continent.
Gameplay is specialized for touch-based controls, the collection of characters includes different costume versions, and the battle system uses set classes like “Warrior,” “Knight,” and “Archer” to influence strategy. There are also event battles against the disciples of the secret society “Ouroboros,” Trial events where you can cooperate with other players, and randomized searches where you can get various items hidden on the map.
Falcom has currently not announced plans to release the smartphone title outside of Singapore and Malaysia.
