While in the cage the girl has to cleanse various black weapons suspended in the different locations of the game. When she cleanses the weapon there is a short story of the weapons which she sees by being teleported into memories the weapon. The whole game revolves around these short stories and the girl exploring “The Cage”

Companions (オトモ) can be obtained through side quests, they are tiny creatures that can be individually leveled up from the main party. You are supposed to equip a companion with every player before battle and their attacks can only be used once in battle.
The gears include their main weapon, two sub-weapons, three Memories (miscellaneous attributes from character leveling), and one Companion.
Each player has mastered its special weapon according to its compatibility meanwhile noncompatible weapons can be equipped to their substitutes or companions.
The main menu includes a strengthening option here you can upgrade your weapon and gears. The maximum level for a weapon is 40 which unlocks its story. The maximum rarity level is a 4 ⭐rarity.
