Growlanser III: The Dual Darkness is the third installment to the popular series Growlanser created by Career Soft and published by Atlus, as well as one of the two games released in the United States in Growlanser Generations.
In a world where the sun is dying, the people on the continent of Kirschland must seek a way to save themselves. The soil is barren and the people are slowly starving to death. Countries war with each other over the scarce food left and even civil war breaks out as a kingdom is divided. Nothing is stable.
Annette rescues a young man named Slayn, who suffers from amnesia from an ordeal. His memories gradually come back and open up disturbing mysteries. To prepare for the worst in case Annette's country falls to famine, they need to find a new place to live, and set out for adventure.
