Ten years later, and with no memory of the past, that Slayer awakens in Mahoroba Village.
Accompanied by his allies who include Hakase (a professor keen to learn the truth of the world), Gwen (a young British slayer), Benzuki (a kind-hearted lad who is also considered to be the strongest slayer in town) and Homura (an ex-thief, turned spy) – the protagonist must go up against another Oni threat, only with the aid of new technology from the professor. Slayers use a device known as the “Demon Hand” in battle, which creates a physical manifestation of their thoughts. With combat and exploration capabilities, this can be used to crush enemies and environmental hazards alike.
