In a time when men and gods lived in harmony, the kingdom of Angel Land was ruled by two goddesses --Palutena, the Goddess of Light, and Medusa, the Goddess of Darkness.

One day, Palutena decided to punish the evil Medusa, and banished her after turning her into a hideous monster. But Medusa would not go without a fight. She created an army of monsters and evil spirits and captured Palutena. Play as Pit, a young angel trapped in the Underworld, and Palutena's only hope. Use your magical bow to retrieve the Sacred Treasures, defeat Medusa, and restore peace to Angel Land.
