The physical versions of the game will cost gamers 5,980 yen ($75), while the PSP and PS Vita downloadable versions will set them back 4,980 yen ($62). The narrative is set in the year 2031 in Tokyo, when the city has become a futuristic utopia that is powered by a 2,000-meter-tall construction called the Space Elevator. Players control five different characters whose stories will tie in together thanks to a student named Mikoto who can predict future events in the current timeline.

The platforms for the upcoming adventure game were announced last year during Level-5's world press conference. Level-5 has yet to announce whether the game will be localized for North American and European markets.
