Video games turned everything upside down.
This is a world by SEGA, for SEGA.
From infrastructure to entertainment, SEGA reigns supreme in all areas. The player, who lives in this world, one day encounters a mysterious being called “X.”
“The world you live in is not as it should be.”
The player, who learned that this world has been warped by SEGA, must throw themselves into a battle with SEGA in order restore the world to its true form.

An app update slated to be released on November 30 will allow players to get refunds for in-game currency that they have already paid for. In-game activities that were already booked will continue as planned until the formal end of service. If the data is downloaded prior to the official end of service date, the same update will also enable current players to continue playing the game in an offline mode beyond that date. They will be able to access the in-game gallery, the built-in mini-game, and the home screen.
The game was first shown in February and was formally released in Japan and a few other Asian nations on April 25. Artist Yuugen and game creator Yoko Taro both contributed to the game.
