Nippon Ichi Software recently revealed their upcoming game The Guided Fate: Cross Thesis Awakening, which will revolve around the tough choices you’ll be making as you advance through the game. We now have more details behind the story that will lead you into making different decisions.
Here’s an overview of the game’s story:
Several years after the revolution from a certain young man’s fate… a powerful demon known as Satanadia has fallen; however, the absolute superiority of the demons continued to dominate, as angels and demons continued to shed blood across the war-plagued lands of the realms.
In the midst of the heated war, there was one area in the heavenly realm, where guerrilla tactics have been used as an effort to keep themselves from falling. This is where they’ve continued God’s research on the ultimate anti-demon weapon, the Fate Awakening Crystal, that could change mankind into gods themselves. Meanwhile, the people waited impatiently in the human realm.
The protagonist is on his way back home from school, when he is suddenly attacked by an ensemble that fell from the sky. He dies shortly after his heart is pierced.
However, after being saved by a mysterious girl, he finds himself somewhere he’s never seen before… as he awakens in the heavenly realm. After having the Fate Awakening Crystal transplanted within him, it has been decided that he will be taking part in the war between angels and demons.
From force and suffering, comes the “ultimate choice,” which at times results in the unexpected killing of others, involution, and other irrational consequences… but in order to defeat the enemy, the protagonist will have to choose between the death of two beloved women. He can only save one of them… which path will he ultimately choose?
NIS describe protagonist Shin Kamikaze as gentle and passive, and he’s not that great when it comes to any kind of relationships. He doesn’t have parents, and was teased about it when he was little. Due to past events, Shin has always believed that “mankind live by using others,” so he has a tough time trusting other people.
After being killed by a demon on his way back home from school, he wakes up as God. This will lead to a great change in his fate.
The “ultimate choice” system will be a big part of The Guided Fate: Cross Thesis Awakening. After the protagonist wakes up as God, he will face “ultimate choices” throughout the story. This system revolves around the “divergence of fate” where the fate of certain characters and the story will change according to your choices.
You’ll be required to pick one choice, but there won’t be any correct answers, and you’ll often have to pick from unreasonable choices. Not only will the ultimate choice change the story, but it will also reflect on the protagonist’s growth. The choices you make will determine what kind of person he’ll become as the game goes on.
The Guided Fate: Cross Thesis Awakening will be released on July 24, 2014 for PlayStation 3.
