The moment you begin The Longest Five Minutes, you will be thrust into battle with the final boss, the Demon King! This battle will advance by the choices that you make.

Our hero goes on a quest through his memories.
Our protagonist loses all of his memories prior to the final bout with the Demon King. He's forgotten his ultimate technique, the name of his hometown, and even what he's fighting for. But while he's fighting the Demon King, his memories start to come back to him... The hero will reexperience his memories in the form of a traditional RPG. You will have to relive all of our hero's memories from the day he began his quest: trials and tribulations, squabbles with his friends, and even the acquiring of his mighty sword.
His memories are inside the RPG!
The memories our hero has reexperienced will come back to him during the battle with the Demon King. Our hero was initially perplexed, having lost his memories. But suddenly, he remembers how to counter strong magic attacks, his reason for fighting the Demon King, and where his determination comes from!
If only I had been nicer to him, he would have...
During his quest, our hero came to a crossroads when he had to choose between his two allies... He completely forgot about that... The battle with the Demon King will unfold differently depending on which ally you choose!
The memories become ever more beautiful!
The hero has a tendency to glamorize his memories. You cannot bring the items you gained in the RPG segments to the battle with the Demon King, but, if you perform well during the hero's flashbacks, your reexperience level will grow.
Hero, become stronger in your memories!
Your reexperience level is added to your RPG level during the RPG segments. Your RPG level is determined by which flashback you're experiencing, but your reexperience level is based on your performance. Just like any RPG, your characters will become stronger the more quests you complete and monsters you defeat!
Beautiful memories will forever lie in the heart...
Your reexperience points transfer over, memory to memory. By reexperiencing his memories through flashbacks, our hero and his party grows ever stronger. And his memories become more beautiful!
Your memories have been recorded!
