The game takes place in Caspartia and continues the events of the previous part. The main character, who overcomes the threat to humanity, goes back home, not suspecting that at this time, humanity will face an even greater threat. The player will embark on a dangerous journey to help restore the birthplace of a once glorious and prosperous nation.

The player will once again challenge the forces of darkness, who are about to strike back.

The gameplay of 9th Dawn II is an old-school top-down RPG adventure where the hero travels through the open world, completes quests and battles against various opponents.
