The intro to this one although much better than the previous ones. The game is totally distanced from the previous ones with none of the existing characters returning from the previous game with the exception of Eiji as a hidden character.
Eiji Shinjo, the new leader of an organization called the "Gerard Foundation", has organized a fourth Toshinden tournament which revolves around the gathering of four holy weapons that can be used to save the world or to destroy it. However, Eiji's old enemy from the third tournament ten years ago, Vermillion, is also after the four weapons. Can Eiji stop Vermillion before it's too late?
