Here’s an overview of the game, via Western publisher NIS America:
After a brief war, Calvard enjoys unprecedented economic prosperity. However, public uncertainty is increasing as the number of immigrants increases and questionable political reforms proliferate. He follows the spriggan Van Arkride on a unique request that will turn out to be more than he bargained for. Will the nation fall into chaos?
The story so far…
The life of the spriggan is just one of the many professions that have emerged in the Calvard Republic. Whether playing detective, negotiator, or bounty hunter, Van Arkride takes on the kind of work that legitimate sources can’t accept. Whether best left out of public view or rooted in the dark corners of the underworld, almost any job is open for consideration.
The year is S.1208. A prim and proper young woman dressed in the uniform of a prestigious academy visits a run-down multi-tenant building in the old town of Edith, the country’s capital. With a very dignified look, she looks at the door plate in front of her. She says: ‘ARKRIDE Solutions Office: Just complicated matters.’
Steeling himself, he knocks on the door three times.
“The first thing in the morning…?” —a relaxed but surprisingly young voice growls with a yawn.
From the moment he opens the door to greet her, a new story begins.
- A case in Calvard – Follow the spriggan known as Van Arkride as he takes on a case that will change the fate of the nation… as well as his own. He explores the far reaches of the Calvard Republic as you immerse yourself in a rich story full of action and intrigue.
- Spriggan into action – Seamlessly transition between arena battles and turn-based combat with the revamped AT (Action Time) battle system and expand your arsenal with new shard abilities, courtesy of the sixth-generation battle orb, Xipha.
- Between law and chaos – Under the Alignment system, your choices and actions affect how your story unfolds. Your propensity toward Law, Chaos, and the shadows in between can influence your status in the city, who will ally with you or oppose you, and even what jobs and dialogue options are available to you.
