Coded Soul: Uke Keigareshi Idea - New Import, In Stock

The year is 20XX and a gateway to another world has been discovered. Housed in a military facility, the Monolith Gate looks like a black crystal shard which is tended to by a gatekeeper named Gail. During an emergency situation at the facility one day, the hero Jay is pushed out of the way by a girl named May. In the confusion, May is shot by three nervous soldiers and she crumples to the ground like a rag doll. Since assault with a deadly weapon is unacceptable, the gatekeeper Gail uses his power to lift her body up and spirits away into the world of Idea. Jay soon follows them in a bid to save May from an uncertain fate.

Coded Soul is a 3D action-adventure game where Jay explores the military facility as well as the world of Idea in back-and-forth episodic jaunts. He can't stay in Idea for long and must return to his own world after a certain amount of time unless he can find areas which extend his stay. Once in Idea, Jay is gifted with a special power which allows him to bind monsters to his will by drawing their souls into himself. Once corralled, up to two beasts fight alongside Jay whenever the party is faced with enemy forces. The overall goal is to rescue May but a large number of sub-quests may be enjoined for added challenge.

Early preorders (30% ratio) will ship with a bonus "Making of Coded Soul" Booklet which chronicles the preparation and work that Kouji Okada's Gaia Studio put into developing the game.
