Dusk Diver is an anime action-game is based in Taipei's iconic Ximending district and takes the Musou genre to the next level.

In the concepts of mortal humans, the Gods reside in the sacred place named Kunlun.
The Phantoms, in the mortal imaginations, were born in Dimension of Chaos.
To mortal humans, the dimensions of the Gods and the Phantoms were distant but familiar.

Ximending, a crossroad of ancient and modern, where history and fashion intertwine; noisy and clamorous. And for that reasons, this place is full with endless vigor and also attracted the Gods and the Phantoms to set foot here.

As the time goes, the energy of different dimensions converges, resulting in an appearance of an unstable dimensional rift. This unpredictable rift became one of the possibilities for the Dimension of Chaos (Phantoms) and the Human Realm (Human) to connect and to travel to the Kunlun. For this, the troubled Kunlun has decided to vigorously intervene such phenomenon.

Thus, everyday afternoon from 17:00 to 19:00, so called the moment of dusk from the legend; is when the energy flows tend to become chaotic and violent. It is trivial for the Phantoms and the Mortals to enter the Kunlun realm unintentionally.
Therefore, the Kunlun has named such dimension as Youshanding.

Dusk Diver is being locally developed in Taiwan and the first game to capture the vibrant and exciting lifestyle of Ximending district, one of the country's most popular tourist locations. The story starts at Exit 6 of the MRT station Ximending, showing a recreation of its streets in a realistic but fantasized world, rendered in beautiful anime style. From there on, players follow ordinary high school student Yang Yumo and experience her fantasy action adventure through Ximending and Youshanding, a mirror world with two faces.

The special collaboration track – “Sensen Shoujo”, sang by Kate Mizukiri, is about the world as seen through the character's eyes. It is produced by Kotori Voice Inc. and composed by shade, a successful composer for games such as “Rance VII - Sengoku Rance” and “Azur Lane”. On top of that, the team cast a very talented selection of Taiwanese and Japanese voice actors to breathe life into the unique characters.

Additionally, Japanese voice actress Kate Mizukiri of sound studio Kotori Voice Inc. will not only play one of the characters, but also perform the exclusive cooperation song "Sensen Shoujo”!

Already available on Steam Early Access, Dusk Diver is coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 worldwide this Fall!
