Publisher Namco Bandai says of the JRPG: "The adventure starts with Kor, a young man living in a small village by the sea. While watching the house in his grandfather's absence, Kor meets a young woman named Kohaku who has come searching for his grandfather.

"However, a mysterious witch soon appears and casts a spell on Kohaku's Spiria, the embodiment of her heart and soul. Kor attempts to lift the spell, but while doing so he accidentally shatters her Spiria Core, the source of her emotions. Armed only with the Soma, an unusual weapon given to him by his grandfather, Kor must now set out on a journey to find a way to make Kohaku's Spiria whole once more."
