Yūji Horii is serving as the general director of the game, and Koichi Sugiyama is composing the soundtrack.
The story takes place in the kingdom of Elsarze, where humans and monsters work hand in hand, and everything is peaceful. However, one day, the monsters turn violent, and begin attacking the humans. Captains of the imperial guards Akt and Mare stand up in order to bring back the original hearts of the monsters, and bring peace back to Elsarze once more.
