Another Story is a new game mode that was released with the 2.0 update. It is described by SNK as a way to get units from old Extra Ops for players who were unable to get them while that Extra Ops was up.
The player's deck in Another Story have a unique mechanic; the units in that deck must be aligned with the faction that the story belongs to. This means if you are playing the Ptolemaic Army stories, you are restricted to Ptolemaic Army units, such as Yoshino and Caroline. Units from other factions cannot be used in that story, and the Soldier Camp is disabled. (Exception is SP story wherein players can used any faction deck, but cannot use Soldier Camp)
In addition, the player is also provided a unit that is critical to that storyline. The strength of the provided unit varies depending on the difficulty setting. Team bonuses will affect them if applicable.
Each chapter has four levels, with the last level containing the boss in that story. After the first story in each faction is completed, you can continue on the same story on a higher difficulty or continue to another faction. So if the player wants to try a story on "Hell" difficulty, they would have to beat that chapter on both Normal and Hard first. The amount of sorties needed for the missions are 10 on normal, 20 on hard and 30 on hell.
Three free tries are given each day, and resets cost 100 Medals.
There are five factions; Regular Army, Rebel Army, Ptolemaic Army, Aliens and Independent factions.
Rewards in the levels include the old Extra Ops unit (and items in some cases), MSP, and some unit parts. Completing levels on normal difficulty award a unit, while completing on hard and hell give medals. A secret ending is unlocked at each chapter by completing that chapter on all difficulties with S Rank. The Extra Ops unit is always the boss of that chapter.

As of the 2.11.0 update, there is a shop in Another Story. It provides the boss unit of each respective story, alongside various units that are featured in the stories. The shop does not hold Box Crank units and some Medal/VIP Crank units.
Buying boss parts are not recommended unless desired, as they still require items in order to be used properly. Pre-acquisition units should be bought if the player decides that they are useful in their decks and/or are nearing an evolution frame.
All purchases are one-time only. It will unlock the unit if not already obtained. If already obtained, the player gains parts equal to the amount required that would be needed to unlock it.
- Super Rare - 3200 medals (80 parts)
- Rare - 900 medals (30 parts)
- Normal- 200 medals (10 parts)
