Humanity is on the brink of extinction and has retreated to an artificial floating city called The Ark(multi-cultural city).
Things are good here, until strange gates leading to another dimension start appearing, and strange creatures called Chimeras emerge from them and start causing havoc.
Disaster strikes when gates to another dimension suddenly appear and dangerous creatures begin to emerge, attacking the people and polluting the land, and normal police forces are unable to compete with them.
To stand up against these threats, a brand new, special police unit known as Neuron is formed.
In order to resist the creatures, humanity developed a special weapon: the Legion.
The Legion acts as your partner, and helps with your investigations.
However, it’s in battle where the Legion shows its real ability...

6 unique heroes will be working together to take on cybernetic monsters that plaque the Ark city that is reminiscent of Tokyo Japan.
Choose between 2 playable characters - one male, one female - on your adventure.
The character you don’t choose also appears as your younger twin, and a fellow member of Neuron.
As part of a police special task force, it’s up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world.

Using your Legatus, you can use it to summon your Legion which is a Sword variant.
Other legions include Sword, Axe, and Arrow.

The Astral Chain is used to enslave and brainwash a Chimera into fighting for you
Work together with the Legion and use all sorts of combat styles to fight your enemies.
You can attack the same enemy simultaneously, target different opponents, or send your Legion on the offensive while you support it with items.
Use this synergetic action system to battle and explore together.

You can use your IRIS vision to track down keywords and clues.
And those clues help you answer a quiz at the end, choosing keywords as answers in order to accurately piece the case together.

Side missions are more grinding and involves fighting enemies or closing one of the game's many inter-dimensional rifts.
There are dungeons with some intricate puzzles and hidden routes.

The boss fights are mostly the best parts of the game and you will find experimenting with various weapons more effective in taking them down.
