In the year 199X, just before the 21st century, an unidentified evil star is approaching the United States. As it approached the mainland, it transformed itself into an evil life form that was about to cover all of the country. The life form (Darc Seed) emitted a specter that turned everyone into a wraith. The few people who still had their soul were captured. The people's prayers crossed the sea and reached the Tengu of Yamato, the guardian god of peace. Using his own spiritual power, he created a 'mask of the Great Tengu' and flew it to the U.S. mainland to regain freedom and peace. What awaits is a completely uncontrollable army and monsters that have been created by the energy of Darc Seed. Will the 'Great Tengu' be able to save the United States from this mayhem in time?

1999. What appeared to be a harmless meteorite crashing in the Nevada desert had turned out to be Darc Seed, an evil alien creature with horrible powers. By shooting strange magnetic rays, Darc Seed had turned the helpless nation into zombies and had brought the Statue of Liberty to life to do his dirty work. These rays had also given him control over many deadly weapons, but none were more powerful than the legendary samurai sword, Shura. When the great head of the samurai, Namakubi, heard that the sword had fallen into evil hands, he set off immediately for the United States. For only he possessed the strength and knowledge needed to recapture the magical sword and free the U.S. from the evil clutches of Darc Seed.
