Synopsis


Humanity’s last chance against an interdimensional invasion is a special living weapon called the Legion. As a rookie officer in the elite police task force Neuron, you and your Legion will work together to solve cases and save humankind.

 

  • Players can control the protagonist and a special weapon called a Legion simultaneously, building stylish combos by using both characters in tandem.
  • There are multiple Legions in the game, each with different combat styles and abilities. Players can even strategically change between Legions at will during real-time battles.
  • This apocalyptic setting is full of intricate details and interesting characters, including citizens and suspects you can interact with in the city, others in the special police task force, and your twin sibling.
  • Use the abilities of the Legion not only in battle but also for investigating cases and solving environmental puzzles.
  • Uncover the secrets of the alternate dimension called the Astral Plane, where the mysterious invaders originate.
