On 15 January 2013, a mysterious man decreed that the inhabitants of the planet Newerth will all die in exactly two years. He claimed that those who dared to try and stop this calamity would be doomed to die before they could even get near his castle.

On 13 January 2015, a young girl named Serenity Horton arrives at the castle, with the goal of stopping the calamity that the mysterious man would cause. At this point, the player takes control.
