Bandai Namco’s Story of the Rise is a little over a month old now and is very satisfied. It started with Japanese retail sales with more than 200,000 units sold and passed one million digital and shipment sales in less than a week. This is an addition to the serious criticism force, which you can check out in the latest trailer.
Story of the Rise focusing on the conflict between Dahna and Rena and the former being defeated by the latter for hundreds of years. While Alphen, an amnesiac Dahnan can’t feel pain, and Shionne, a Renan ignorant whose thorns hurt those who touch her, players embark on a journey to defeat the hand Renan Lords. They will recruit new friends along the way, enjoy activities such as fishing and farming, and totally free Dahna.
