In the early 19th century, a colorful cast of characters from across the globe for reasons good and evil find themselves bound by the common goal of pursuing the ancient legend of the "power stones." A power stone is said to fulfill wishes and release hidden power from within those that possess them and amplify the good or evil intrinsic to that character's nature. The main character Falcon, a dauntless adventurer from Britain, must compete and sometimes cooperate with the others searching for this ancient treasure. Based on the Capcom game of the same name, this fantasy adventure title tells the tale of the pursuit for legendary power in a world filled with action, magic, and mystery.

Unbeknownst to most humans, every task they carry out is programmed, and it is thanks to mysterious creatures called “Promin” working in the background, that the world keeps functioning smoothly.
But an evil entity called Bugdeth has come to Earth seeking to create negative energy by causing bugs in the programs which will ultimately allow him to materialize in our world. Soon his minions, the Bug Bites, are turning the Promin into bugs in the system called “Bugmin.” These Bugmin wreak havoc and cause mischief. Suddenly people’s cars won’t stop, or they can’t lock their door!
Luckily, the King of a distant world has sent his son “Wanda” (the space dog?) to save Earth from Bugdeth, but he’ll need to find some help first. That is when Yuto, our reluctant hero appears.
Now Wanda must convince Yuto to help him capture and dubug the Bugmin using the two key items for such a purpose: a special flashlight and camera. Once Yuto is on board they can together capture and clean Bugmin to gain access to that Promin’s special abilities, called “Kamiwaza,” to fight other Bugmin!
Can this boy and dog(?) work together to save the Earth?

116 min.

6 months have passed since national security policeman, Kuraki, along with fellow investigators Osugi and Akeboshi started poking around into a mysterious wife and child murder case. The so-called Mozu Incident exposed part of a shadowy organization within the police department, but proved to be only the tip of the iceberg for a much larger conspiracy. Two simultaneous terrorist acts, a skyscraper occupation and bombing, and the attacking to the embassy of Penam have put Kuraki and his team on the trail of “criminal planner” Takayanagi and professional assassin, Gondo. But they both work for someone deeper behind the scenes, cryptically known as “Daruma”, a man tied to Japan’s criminal history and who has been working on some elaborately nefarious plan. Kuraki and his partners’ pursuit of the truth take them to the Republic of Penam where they find themselves embroiled in deadly confrontation with their last true enemy, Daruma.
