Here is an overview of each game, via Spike Chunsoft:
Thanks to the rising popularity of the PhoneDroid—a device which features augmented reality (A.R.)—the age of advanced technology has finally reached Tanegashima. On that island, Central Tanegashima High’s Robot Research Club is about to have their club disbanded. Despite their predicament, Kaito Yashio, one of only two members in the Robot Club, couldn’t care less and would rather play a robot fighting game all day. His counterpart, the reckless club leader Akiho Senomiya, ignores Kaito’s apathy as she strives to keep the club from being disbanded by completing their giant robot.
One day, Kaito discovers a mysterious A.R. annotation titled “Kimijima Report.” It contains instructions involving locations all across the island—and warns of a conspiracy involving the entire world.

The island of Tanegashima is preparing for the Summer Festival half a year after the events of Robotics;Notes Elite. Kaito Yashio has graduated high school and is applying to attend college as he pursues his dream of becoming an astronaut. Through Nae Tennouji, an acquaintance he knows from JAXA, he is introduced to Itaru Hashida, who happens to be on the same ferry heading back home. Itaru claims to be taking a tour of the island, but as times goes on, he starts acting strangely… Together they enjoy summer with the former members of the Robot Club: Akiho Senomiya, Junna Daitoku, Frau Koujiro, Subaru Hidaka, and Airi Yukifune, a girl they met from the incident last February. However, some unsettling incidents start occurring all around them, harbingers of an event that will again plunge the world into chaos.
