Forged by the creators of the TEKKEN and SOULCALIBUR franchises, Rise of Incarnatesunleashes unfettered combat upon a ravaged world on the brink of destruction. Meteorites falling from the sky and massive cold fronts sweeping across the land represent only a portion of the unending onslaught of catastrophe the future world is faced with. The mysterious “cube phenomena” has enveloped the people of Earth with perpetual fear, and among them are those known as “Incarnates”—humans with extraordinary abilities drawn from Daimones, or spiritual manifestations of the gods, demons, and monsters of all the world’s mythology.
In the mind of each and every Incarnate there speaks a voice: “To avoid certain destruction, you must defeat the Sovereign of this era.” Each Incarnate will respond to this message differently; some lamenting it as an ill omen for the future, while others relishing the ensuing chaos as a pretext to fulfill their base desires. With their own interpretations and reasons to fight, the Incarnates enter the fray to determine the fate of humanity in a world that will never be the same.
