Here is an overview of the game’s story, via the official website:
An Earth stolen by aliens.
In an ordinary town, the people lived a quiet and fulfilled life. However, they did not know it was a false peace. The truth to which they were unaware… is that Earth had already been destroyed…
99 percent of mankind perished by the attack of a mysterious alien force from space called “Dracters.” Eventually, a giant hole was formed in the Earth, terraforming the planet into an suitable alien nest. Mankind had no choice but to escape and hide in shelters. While they do not know when the day will come, they await their comeback…
In Shelter Ixia, the residents’ memories of the day of destruction were erased, and they live an ordinary life unknowing of the truth. However, among them are the “Chosen Ones” who became pilots and operate giant robots called “Rogues” to fight against the aliens. And today, a new pilot will be chosen once again…
