The game tells the story of Kaito Yashio and Akiho Senomiya, the sole members in the Robot Research Club at Central Tanegashima High. The club is facing a mandatory disbandment, however, each member takes the news differently. While Kaito seems more interested in his robot fighting game, Akiho is more determined to save the club from its impending doom. As she continues construction on their club’s giant robot design, the two come across an augmented reality (A.R.) report containing detailed instructions and locations connected to a mysterious conspiracy.
Players will embark on a journey around the island in search of the hidden secrets left behind by Ko Kimijima, the author of the A.R. report. The game features a branching storyline in which players can enjoy multiple playthroughs and various endings for each character. Will you uncover the truth and put a stop to a (possibly) evil plan, which threatens the entire world?
