Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky Game Story
The game’s story revolves around Kanata, a young man who is caught up in a mysterious explosion incident in Tokyo. The explosion causes the ground to collapse down to the subway level, and Kanata, his fiancée Ranze, and their two friends are part of a group of 12 people who are unaccounted for afterward. As they lay dying, Ranze — who has seemingly had a good relationship with Kanata — says, “I don’t want to die together with you.” The next thing he knows, Kanata wakes up in an unknown place that is obviously not Tokyo, or the Earth: a giant tower pierces the heavens and the trees are all crystalized. Kanata finds himself alone, wondering if he is dead. As he ponders this question, he wanders around this new world, and meets a lone young woman.
The first teaser video for the game was previously released by Spike Chunsoft last August 2015.
