View larger.Story In the distant past the universe of X-Blades was ruled by two powerful beings, the Enlightened on the side of good, helping his people how and when he could and the Dark One who was quite the opposite. Both were revered by all peoples and a balanced, but never-ending battle between the two persisted for centuries. Humans suffered terribly in the constant combat between the two, combat which shook the universe to its very core. In order to ease this suffering, the Enlightened banished the divine power of the Dark One, imprisoning it in a stone, known as an Artifact, but at a price. Inseparably linked, where one of the divine beings went the other was bound to follow and so the power of the Enlightened was captured in a matching Artifact. Together the two were hidden away and peace, as well as balance was restored to the universe. But peace is a fragile thing. It is said that any human who comes in contact with the Artifacts will be cursed and the power of darkness will once again be awakened.Enter the game's heroine Ayumi. As the game begins a map which has been lost for countless years suddenly turns up and it shows the location of the artifacts. Unaware of the curse, the adventurer Ayumi searches for and finds the immensely valuable stones, releasing powerful forces in her body. Her goal and the player's is to discover what the secret of the curse is, free herself from it and at last defeat the darkness.Characters AyumiAyumi is a charismatic heroine and fearless treasure hunter.

He uses powerful explosions of light and his punches have to be seen to be believed. The EnlightenedA powerful being who guards the Artifact of Darkness, as a Master of Magic, he uses spells to hurl opponents to the ground and metes out massive damage, but avoids close combat. The only way to defeat him is to use black magic and/or fire magic. The Dark OneThe Dark One is the guardian of the island - he conceals the Artifact of Light. Even the most powerful spells hardly affect him and only a strong blow with a blade can break through his defenses and affect him in any way.
