- Main article: Dawn of the Golden Witch/Plot Summary
Having become the new Game Master at the end of End of the Golden Witch, Battler is tasked with the creation of his own game board as a way of demonstrating his understanding of Beatrice's game. Beatrice is also reborn, but her new self lacks the memories of the original and possesses a timid personality. Battler's game has a focus on the couples George and Shannon, and Jessica and Kanon, who participate in "Love Trials" to determine which of their relationships will succeed. Beatrice joins these trials as part of her quest to discover who she once was and meets another version of Beato while Erika takes on Battler's game.
