Galuda is a biological weapon that connects the Holy Spirit and humans through alchemy and mechanical engineering.
The military nation “Shinra”, which gained the power of Galuda, was destroyed by the two Galuda “Ageha” and “Tateha” that they created.
Three years have passed since that war.
After an experiment that touches on contraindications, “Soma” has artificially acquired Galuda’s abilities.
And the only Galuda who was born, “Asagi” who was the assassin of King Soma.
“Tsubame” and “Janome” who are also artificial Galuda and prince and princess of Soma country chasing Asagi.
Then, Ageha and Tateha head to rescue Asagi to stop the tragedy.
The battle with the true Galuda and the built Galuda is about to begin.
Characteristic battle system
The ultimate power to bring out the true power of Galuda, “Ascension” and “Awakening Death World”.
At the time of Ascension, the characters and genders of the main characters are changed in order to bring to the surface the personality and appearance of the fused “Holy Spirit.”
When activated, it develops a barrier and delays the time it flows to the outside world, so the scroll speed of the screen and the speed of enemy aircraft and bullets are extremely reduced.
