    Story

    The story of Shinji Ikari, the 14?year?old boy who has been entrusted with the heavy burden of mankind`s fate, is about to enter uncharted territory. In the battle to prevent the apocalyptic Third Impact, Shinji and fellow Evangelion pilot Rei Ayanami were forced to carry humanity’s hopes on their shoulders. Now, as the onslaught of the bizarre, monstrous Angels escalates, the fiery Asuka Langley Shikinami enters the fray piloting Eva Unit Two. Joining them is a new, alluring heroine, Mari Illustrious Makinami. The war between the Angels and the Evangelion heats up even more with the introduction of new Eva units. Intense battles the likes of which have never been seen rage across the screen, one after another. The excitement of these mind?blowing spectacles will take the story in a new direction.
