As so a large portion of these things do, everything starts on an otherworldly island. For this situation, Gogapoe Island, a spot populated by both people and beasts. What begins as a mission to get back Niko's birthday cake turns into a journey for the destiny of Gogapoe itself. Anyway, ya know, cake is still super imperative, as well.
Heaps of amicable creatures will join Niko's mission and utilize their nutty forces to crush snags and embarrass foes. Swarms of malice beasts will result in anarchy and for the most part be jerkfaces, yet that is nothing you can't alter with headbutts, ice breath, stink mists and rainbow barf.
