Masahiro Tokuda (Last Hope, Sengoku Basara: End of Judgement) is composing the music. fripSide are performing the current opening theme song "legendary future," and KOTOKO is performing the current ending theme song "SticK Out."

The game is a real-time 3D battle role-playing game that has topped 13 million downloads worldwide since launching on September 19, 2016. The story is set in a world of sword and sorcery a century after King Kyle of Orvelia defeated the demon king Angumundo. The squire Kasel lives in these peaceful times. However, Kasel's destiny is set in motion when he hears of the demons reappearing on his land. Guided by a great wise man, Kasel embarks on an adventure with his companions to drive back the darkness threatening his once peaceful land and become the Chosen Warrior of the Holy Sword Aea.
