Fight to live and live to fight


Aionios is a world of natural splendour, and the backdrop to an endless conflict between two opposing nations: Keves and Agnus. Time is of the essence for the people of Aionios, who fight relentlessly to extend their lives long enough to realise a 10-year period of service.



A nation where mechanical technology was developed. Its armies deploy units comprised mainly of combat vehicles – small, mobile weapons operated by soldiers riding them.



A nation strong in ether, a magical technology. Its forces are built around units that specialise in ether combat, and they fight with small, mobile, autonomous weapons that use ether technology.

Through a chance encounter, a group of six soldiers hailing from rival nations resolve to put aside their differences and work together to expose a new threat – far greater than that of the ceaseless war.

A world of wanderlust

From its stunning vistas, diverse wildlife and dreamlike landmarks, the epic world of Aionios is begging to be explored! Whether scaling mountains on foot, gliding across chasms on ropes or sailing across vast lakes, new discoveries await beyond every horizon.


The people of Aionios seek refuge in military colonies which, once liberated, can become a safe haven for your party too. Seek them out on your travels whenever you want to rest up, cook up a delicious stat-boosting meal, shop for supplies or run a few errands for the locals.


Keep track of folks you meet along your journey using the Affinity Chart, a map that records characters you’ve met as well as their relationships to one another.

Test your mettle!

Draw your weapon while facing an enemy in the overworld to start a battle. With six characters in your core party at any given time, you’ll need to use each soldier’s strengths to your advantage and harness powerful attacks called Arts to strive for victory!


The more the merrier!


Recruit brave residents of Aionios called “Heroes” to lend their arms and aptitude as a seventh party member. Only one hero can join you at a time, so swap these unique companions in and out of your squad as needed and make use of their unique Classes to bolster your own capabilities!


Fearsome fusions!

By triggering a process known as "Interlinking", specific tag-team pairs in your party can fuse together into a giant form called “Ouroboros”. These mighty beings can use powerful Ouroboros Arts to make quick work of even the most formidable foes, but act fast – once the time limit is up, your characters will stand apart once more.
