Get the details below.

■ Story

◆ Eden and Sphere City

Eden

The electricity and water brought about by the mysterious facility known as Sphere City make Eden remarkably different from other cities.

Thanks to its blessings, not only do its people not need to struggle to survive, they can also grow crops, and at night receive luminance from electric lights.

And in the city, a currency called “Ideal” is used for business transactions. It is becoming a city in the process of rapidly restoring civilization as it was before the final war.

Naturally, foreign enemies have their sights set on Eden, so its founder built a wall and made it a city where only a limited number of people with a “gate pass” can enter and exit.

Sphere City

Some sort of facility said to have existed since before the nuclear war, but the details are unknown.

The facility is currently in operation, with a large amount of water circulating the pipes on the outer wall, and electricity also being generated.

In Eden, it is forbidden to learn how Sphere City works, and it is illegal to enter the facility.

◆ Eden’s Major Spots

Bazaar Street

Eden’s biggest marketplace. Business transactions by way of the currency known as “Ideal” actively take place here. Not only can you find fruits and vegetables, it seems Bazaar Street also sells cooked foods that have become famous in the city.

Casino Street

In the corner of the entertainment district is an alleyway with dazzling neon lights. The casino is the symbol of this neighborhood. The casino is a place of relaxation for the people of Eden, especially the garrison.

Junk City

An area where waste like car and bike parts, scrap iron, and the like come together. It will be necessary to visit this area to service or power-up your car, which is essential for going out into the wasteland.

Cathedral

A building on elevated ground in the city. A facility where the city’s ruler Kisana performs her official duties, the people of Eden wait in line before entering in order to petition to Kisana.

Sphere City can be seen from the back upon entering. A prohibited area, Sphere City seems to be treated as a mysterious existence.

Coliseum

An arena located in the heart of Eden. A place where ruffians and fighters battle, and the audience predicts winners and places bets. Here, Kenshiro will participate in a group battle called the Prisoner Competition, as well as a one-on-one battle called a Duel.

Merchant Ken

One day, Rin visits Eden and reunites with Kenshiro. Because of a certain situation, Rin (voiced by Rie Kugimiya) will help run a store in Eden.

In order to help out Rin, Kenshiro will become a “merchant” who stocks items requested from various places.

It seems that Kenshiro will help out the booming business in more ways than just stocking.
