Dark Kingdom Story
Aeons ago, when the
Earth was still one kingdom... A paradise of gods
once revered as the pinnacle of civilization, was
conquered and forgotten over the course of one
fateful night. Under the influence of a Great Evil,
mankind, seeking to gain the paradise for
themselves, waged merciless war upon it and won...
but at a price. The entire Earth was left in
shambles and mankind was forced to begin its
evolution anew from the beginning. It is said that
the ruler of the paradise gave up her life to send
the souls of the fallen to a new future, and to seal
the Evil within the deepest regions of the Earth.
And though the Evil would one day free itself from
its prison, a new hope would rise from a mother's
sacrifice... and a Soldier would be born.
Blissfully unaware of the destiny that lies before
her, Usagi Tsukino dreams of being Sailor V, the
famous hero of love and justice who protects the
dangerous streets of Tokyo when the curtain of night
falls. Little does Usagi know that inside of her
lies great potential; a power she must use to battle
an ancient evil and a merciless witch bent on global
domination. Everything that Usagi believes will be
tested, but she cannot be afraid.
Her mission is to secure the lost kingdom's Phantom
Silver Crystal, the source of all energy throughout
the universe, and unveil and protect the kingdom's
princess. Usagi's journey will be hard, but she will
not be alone. Fate deals her a hand of fortune and
entrusts her with friends and guardians to help her
along the way. Though they may argue and turn
against one another throughout their struggles,
their bond can never truly be broken. Only by
accepting their past lives will they put a close to
the dark events that led to their reincarnation so
they can truly live again.
In her darkest moments, Usagi is saved by a
mysterious jewel thief known as Tuxedo Mask, also
looking for the Phantom Silver Crystal. Who is he,
and why does Usagi's heart race whenever he is near?
Blinded by love and enduring the weight of the world
on her shoulders, will she be able to fulfill her
It is only through strong faith, firm will, and deep
love that she will succeed.
This is the story of the pretty sailor-suited
Soldier of Love and Justice, Sailor Moon.

as well as the original Apocalypse Arc. Most of the
side stories (movies and specials) are being

manga's story, creative license is being used to add
and change the story to better suit a role-playing
videogame and to make the experience a very epic and
original one. There will be a large amount of
original characters and plot points. A number of
plot elements and characters from the anime, live
action, and musicals are also being included.

VI. Gameplay and
A. Battle System
The battle system will be side-view and active time
(meaning that the action takes place in real time.)

battlers and enemies.
Active Time Battle System
On the battle screen, a status summary of each
character is displayed. These encompass HP levels,
MP levels (where applicable), and an ATB gauge. The
ATB gauge determines when a character can take
action. When the gauge is filled completely, the
player can issue an order to that character. Enemies
can attack while you are issuing an order.
Rows and Party Members
Battle formation will consist of two rows. The front
row boosts physical attacks and the back row boosts
physical defense. Magic is not affected by row.
Parties will consist of five members with the
ability to swap out during battle with no penalty.
The active party can’t heal the non-active party in
battle. Any party members not present when the
battle ends do not receive any TP but do receive
half of the EXP gained by those who are present.
Each party member will learn a large number of Techs
(Special Attacks and Magic) throughout the game.
Magic consists of healing, barriers, stat moves and
anything else non-offensive. Attack All spells will
increase in strength against one enemy. There are
also Double and Group Techs in which two or more
party members can combine their turns to unleash one

different days and interact with the environment.
