Hexyz Force is a PlayStation Portable game released in Japan on November 12, 2009; and in the United States on May 25, 2010. It is a collaboration between Sting Entertainment and Atlus.

Long ago, Norvia, the Goddess of Creation, descended from the heavens. Using the Holy Vessel, a divine chalice charged with all Force (the spiritual energy in the universe), she created life and the Divinities, shepherds of existence. After some time, Delgaia, the God of Destruction, brought about a great calamity known as the Gods' Remorse. He intended to return all Force to the Holy Vessel, returning Berge to the void. The Divinities sacrificed themselves to defeat Delgaia, delivering Berge from doom and sealing the God of Destruction away deep within the earth.

As Berge lay in ruin, a result of its bitter war, Norvia made a covenant. She would restore Berge to its former beauty on one condition. An Hour of Judgment would eventually come to pass, then the world would have to decide its ultimate path: creation or destruction.


The game takes place in a world named Berge, which is divided into two sides; the "Lustrous" side, the world of no night, and the "Darkness" side, the world of no day. This game has 2 main protagonists: Cecilia (Light), a priestess who is tasked with stopping the Hour of Judgement, and Levant (Dark), a defected former member of the Empire of Rosenbaum. Together, they must stop the world-conquering ambitions of Emperor Axel, who seeks to take control of the Hour of Judgment for himself.

The game's uniqueness lies in the scale of creation and destruction where each action the player makes will cause the balance to change and will determine the ending.

And as a side note, this game is not a part of the Dept. Heaven series.


Tropes in this game:

  • Showgirl Skirt: Irene's adventuring outfit has a long skirt over her frilly mini skirt. So she wears a fancy dress that allows Kicking Ass in All Her Finery.
  • Spanner in the Works: Who knew feeding a dying man in the giant worm's belly would be the first step in derailing Faust's Evil Plan?
  • Stellar Name: Rafael and Luffina Gemini.
  • Storming the Castle: Though not "storm" so much as "teleport in."
  • Take a Third Option: Our heroes try to pull this in the True ending, though Azul isn't very happy about this.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Virtus. If you start depending on the man that you wish to manipulate, you know your plan is doomed to fail in the first place.
  • Tragic Monster: Almost everyone on the side of destruction: Bahn, Axel, and Natulle.
  • True Final Boss: Force Necrius.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Ciel in Levant's party and Luffina in Cecilia's party.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Levant is the very first mutated being Faust ever created. When he was young, Levant and Irene tried to climb Fort Faulken together, but he tripped and fell to the ground, leaving her behind. Faust experimented on his body afterwards.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: You can deny the starving man victuals, water a living cactus with Mercury and have it die, leave most of the elves in the burning forest left to die, likewise with the soldiers in Fort Faulken, and kill the God of Creation.
  • Visual Initiative Queue
  • War for Fun and Profit: The Nobles in Rosenbaum have been profiteering from the battles with the other races, or distracting from other issues.
  • Wave-Motion Gun and Sword: The Divine Mechanism Grendle and the Dark Sword Revalens.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Azul and Axel. Norvia is implied to be this as well when she tries to brainwash the party into choosing Creation.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Each Final Boss has the power of Creation and Destruction.
