Hayato, upon his investigations, will cross path with a mysterious girl, gifting him a device that will allow him to capture the essences of mythological and arcane creatures, a la Pokémon or Digimon. Players, using this device, will be able to capture over 100 creatures, known as Astrals, and utilize their numerous skills to descend into dungeons known as the Layers in the pursuit of changing the world.
