Face the unknown and uncover the truth behind Tokyo’s population vanishing.
A mysterious fog has covered up Tokyo and anyone who gets in touch with it will be turned into spirits. Except for Akito who has not been fully taken over due to an incident before the fog occurs.
Akito is now the only living human in Tokyo with a possessed right hand. What’s worse is that a Hannya masked man appeared with a spell, summoning evil spirits into the world while sealing away the rest all around Shibuya.
Someone has to stop the Hannya. A spirit named KK approaches Akito and asks for his help in taking down Hannya. In return, KK is convinced by Akito to take him to the hospital and visit her sister, Mari, who is in a coma. Surprisingly, they found the Hannya man in the room too who seems to want Mari as a sacrifice for a certain ritual.
To save his family, Akito has to fight by using various psychic and paranormal abilities acquired from his possessed hand. Utilize elemental powers and ghost-hunting skills to combat evil spirits, or finish missions around the city from other spirits and ally with powerful spectral entities.
