It is the year 2113, and mankind's reach has extended to space. After the mysterious destruction of a space cruiser from the alien planet Elysium, a full-out attack is launched on the unsuspecting planet Earth, causing much death and destruction. Now, the fate of the world lies with 4 knights, and their ability to wield ancient relics buried deep beneath the Earth's surface. With Elysium's force pressing closer, and Armageddeon upon them, they must fight to save Earth.
Surrounded by water and a world of pollution, oppression, and never-ending rain, the city of ECOBAN feeds off of the surrounding pollutants to sustain life on this seemingly last continent on earth. Shua, a man thrown out of the city, misses the blue sky and now fights to cast down light on this cloud covered island, while uncovering figures from his past.
Disturbed by Japan’s emergence as the de facto world leader in robotics, the United Nations instituted an international treaty requiring stringent regulations. When vocal objections failed to overturn the decision, Japan chose to withdraw from the UN and vanished from world view in a self-imposed isolation made possible by an impenetrable electromagnetic barrier. Now, ten years later in 2067, the only means of contact between Japan and the world belongs to Daiwa Heavy Industries, a powerful corporation monopolizing the world’s robotics market. The uneasy truce comes under question when SWORD, a U.S. special forces unit, finds disturbing evidence that Japan may have sinister designs for the rest of the world. SWORD must now infiltrate Japan to separate fact from fiction, but is anyone prepared for the truth?
I'll be frank I found Elysium to be completely atrocious. But if you enjoy CGI sci-fi spectacles big on action and light on everything else, Vexille is sure to satisfy you a whole lot more than Elysium did - even if you don't greatly care for this either it's hardly the soul-searing abomination that I found Elysium to be.
But no really if you liked Elysium this is more of the same only a whole lot better.
