Arknights: Reimei Zensou

Arknight's summary

The game takes place in the dystopian and post-apocalyptic future of the planet Terra, where humans exhibit kemonomimi traits - traits of animals or mythological races. The natural disasters that have struck the world have contributed to the production of a precious mineral, Originium, which enables the use of the "arts" (magic) and often infects humans with a progressive disease called the Oripathy Virus. Due to the 100% mortality rate of the disease and its high contagiousness at the time of death, hostility towards the infected spread, leading to their mass quarantine and expulsion by governments around the world, causing tensions between the infected and the uninfected.

The player takes on the role of the "Doctor" who leads a team of "Operators" from the island of Rhodes, a pharmaceutical, medical and self-defense organization. As the Oripathy Virus spreads, the team must seek a cure while fending off threats such as the Gathering Movement, an infected anarchist military power bent on overthrowing the governments of Terra in revenge for persecuting victims of the Oripathy Virus.
