◆Game Summary:

1) Story Introduction

One king left this world. In this realm, where kings have traditionally been chosen by the Holy Sword, it came time to hold a new Choosing. Out of the many people who sought to draw the Sword, only one succeeded. The heroine, a peasant girl, neither knight nor royalty.
The heroine remains confused about everything, but the legendary wizard Merlin persuades her to take up the crown. She sets out to battle for the first time in her life. Tears are in her eyes, she grips the Sword tightly in hand, still not knowing why it chose her. She learns what true love is. Even though the threads of fate twist around her, she holds love dear in her heart for one man. She takes up the Sword to cut a path for her beloved’s destiny.
