THE ALIENS ARE BACK!
In the year 2634, Earth has finaly escaped from the hand of Black Magic, one year after the end of the war with the mysterious alien army… Or has it?
One day, a strange radio message comes in from General Hal of the Federation troops as he heads for the South American base ruins in preparation for the seventh GX Army manoeuvres.
“Friendly GX troops have suddenly turned their weapons on us! No, it can’t be! They’re not human! They must bee…”
