Story

Due to a large-scale climate issue caused by the enlargement of the sun, people have lost the pleasure of light and their activities have been restricted.

In this world, unique units and characters gather at “Babel”, an entertainment tower in which there are live show battles. There, humans and androids battle with the aim of reaching the top of the tower.
