Manual (North American version)
It is the beginning of the 21st century, and Earth’s population stands 7 billion strong, yet mankind faces extinction due to the sudden appearance of a spatial anomaly in Antarctica.
Dubbing this anomaly the Schwarzwelt, the United Nations discreetly establishes a counter-organization to deal with the problem without causing a global panic. But in the face of a phenomenon beyond human understanding, the project is powerless to act.
With the Schwarzwelt slowly expanding and mankind’s clock running, the U.N. approves drastic measures to dispatch a manned investigative unit into the void. Nations put aside their differences to form the Schwarzwelt Investigational Team, consisting of top scientists and soldiers gathered from countries around the globe and trained in the world’s most advanced technology.
The utmost precautions are developed, including next-generation landing vessels hardened with plasma shields to grand them access to the Schwarzwelt and the cutting-edge Demonica combat suits designed to withstand the harshest of conditions inside. So armed, the Schwarzwelt Investigational Team departs into a world where danger beyond their imagination awaits, to save mankind’s future from utter annihilation.
An unknown void that appeared without warning near the South Pole. Originally, it was a mere meter in diameter, but its radius has since grown to several hundred kilometers with no indications of slowing. The plasma cloud on the Schwarzwelt’s outer edge destroys anything it comes in contact with.
High-tech combat gear equipped with a state-of -the-art computerized guidance system developed for next-generation warfare. The airtight suit is designed to withstand harsh environments and the onboard AI can automatically enhance the wearer’s abilities.

The soundtrack, which comes in a cardboard sleeve, was a pack-in with first copies of the game. There were manufacturing problems with the discs produced; they wouldn’t play in a CD player, though could be read/ripped through a CD drive in a computer. Atlus gave out replacements for a time, and didn’t require any sort of proof of purchase.
