Your journey will start at Labyrinth City Orario, a peculiar town in which thereâ€™s a huge underground labyrinth â€“ the dungeon -, which is why it was given the name it has. You will be taking on the role of Bell Cranel, a young adventurer who has traveled to Orario to explore the dungeon. Unfortunately, no Familia would dare to recruit someone who lacked any experience. What was he to do? The good news is that there was someone who saw something in him and believed in his potential: Hestia. Actually, thatâ€™s Goddess Hestia!
You see, the Gods and Goddesses of this world decided to travel to the lower world to live among their children, experiencing the hardship they face in their day to day life. They would offer them one thing and one thing only: their blessing. This would grant them the strength needed to venture on to fight the many monsters they would face in their journeys. They did this under each of the Familia under them, with their children becoming the servants of this particular â€œhouse.â€ Goddess Hestia starts her Familia with Bell Crane, a level 1 adventurer.
But wait, thereâ€™s more! Youâ€™ll also get to play as Ais Wallenstein, a first class adventurer, and executive of the Loki Familia. Sheâ€™s a tough warrior and one of the strongest first class adventurers. For each of the gameâ€™s chapters, you might find yourself alternating between Bellâ€™s story segments and Aisâ€™ story segments. First, youâ€™ll get the opening story for a chapter that sets things up, followed by chance to improve your characterâ€™s equipment and skills, as well as to interact with other characters. Youâ€™ll then go on a story quest that will help you progress through the game. If possible, the next step will be a second chance to upgrade your equipment and skills, followed by a second story quest. Complete it, and the chapter will be over.
You will move your character with the left analog stick, attacking with the A and X buttons to perform a small and big attack, respectively. You can try to dodge enemy attacks with the B button, and use magic with the Y button. Your support party charactersâ€™ skills are mapped to the L and R buttons, as itâ€™s A and B skills. Pressing both buttons at the same time, you can activate your characterâ€™s skill, which, along with magic abilities, will be unlocked as you progress through the game. Items can be mapped to the four directions of the D-Pad for easy access, which will make a big difference when in battle.
The game is an action RPG, which means youâ€™ll be moving around each area of the dungeon as you try to stay alive, attacking and defeating anything in your path as you move towards the big, nasty boss that must be defeated. You should always be on the move, because every trip to the dungeon will have a time limit attached to it, and if the timer reaches zero, itâ€™s game over! In contrast with the great looking art style for the story segments, CG events and scenes, the action while exploring the dungeon is presented with chibified versions of Bell and Ais â€“ and the enemies and bosses you will battle â€“ with graphics that do look a bit washed out.
Youâ€™ll be able to customize your characters by spending your hard-earned valis at the market to buy new weapons, armor, and items. You can also enhance weapon and armor with the use of enhancement points from drop items and valis. You see, by selling a specific number of drop items, you will get to unlock new weapons and armor in the market. Weapons and armor can also be imbued with elemental attributes â€“ something that will also require drop items of the same attribute. Each drop item will contain enhancement points, and the number of points to get will depend on the item. As a general suggestion, items with higher enhancement points values should not be sold, and should instead be used for boosting your weapons and armor.
Your Familia is important, and your progress within it must be checked whenever possible. Changing your weapon, armor, and items loadout is a must since youâ€™ll gain access to better things based on your progress and the valis you collect and spend. On top of this, you can also use Skill Points at your Familia to improve your character by unlocking new things at the Skill Sheet. Skill Points are obtained by defeating enemies, which is why you should always defeat every enemy in your path.
Bell and Ais can get boosts for their hit points, to their maximum magic points total, increase their strength or defense, boost their dexterity in order to hopefully land more critical hits, increase their movement speed, their physical attack with daggers, swords, or large swords, increase how many Skill Points are gained after defeating a monster â€“ something that you should unlock in your Skill Sheet as soon as possible, as well as adding a variety of resistance to status ailments such as poison, silence, or burn, to name some examples.

Familia Myth Infinite Combate, you will unlock CG events for the Hestia Familia, the Loki Familia, the Benevolent Mistress, and for the Guild and Other characters.
