"Project Mugen is our love letter to urban fantasies. We wanted to create a world that players could relate to, yet find enough mysteries to keep them coming back.

In a world reminiscent of Earth, where urban legends become reality and humans coexist with the supernatural, players step into the role of an Esper, known as the "Infinite Trigger." This top investigator navigates through vibrant cities, confronting anomalies and supernatural occurrences that threaten the balance of this unique urban paradise. Along the journey, players will team up with various Espers, each with their own stories, to tackle the Chaos endangering humanity. Dive deep into the mysteries, explore the city life, and forge unforgettable memories with your companions. As players navigate through the game, they'll embark on a quest to recover lost memories, confront challenges in various distinct cities, and work to unlock the key to saving the world.
